Almost done with Marcia's book
So this is what I've got. This is stuff that I found while going through old photos. The pocket knife was my dads and he gave it to my husband who loves pocket knives. The buckle with serpents on it probably belonged to my grandmother, the thimbles were my mothers. I still use many of her thimbles when I do handwork. The jewelry box was my mothers and possibly her mothers before her. It has rings and buckles and a silver baby rattle which was my uncles in it. The earrings I don't know much about. They just seemed to fit with the collection. The letter is one written to me while I was in my early 20s.
I plan on adding more color before I send it off to Rosie. I used your suggestion Marcia, and had the letter fade onto one of Rosie's pages. I plan on adding a card with a verbal account of the objects in the back pocket of the book too.
