Ok now I know you are wondering why I am showing this  bundle of wood,,,,,,,,,,,  well it has a very cute Pink handle on it. I was so surprised that it had a pink handle on it. So I just had to snap a photo of it. 

Rooms that I redid 027

This beautiful Pink Valentine box was made by Michele from teacups treasures and tumbling rose cottage,  we were Swap partners for the Valentine Swap. I just love this box, she did an amazing job. I am keeping it out all year long....

Rooms that I redid 037

Sorry if you can't see this very well, I did try to get a better shot of it, but this is the best one. You can click on it to make it bigger and get a better look at it... It of  Jesus's Mother Mary, and it was my Moms for a very long time, it is not a pin or necklace, it if from the Hospital where I was born, Scared Heart, it was a Catholic Hospital, she was shopping with my Aunt and she went into labor with me and that is where she ended up.  Maybe that is why I love to shop.... lol   After she passed away my Dad gave me this small box shaped like a trunk and this was inside it.  I remember I use to look at it when I was little, on the days I did not feel good Mom would let me lay in their bed and look in her jewelry box at all her beautiful pieces she had. I just loved looking at each  ring necklace and bracelet she did not have a lot but what she did have was so pretty.  I don't know what it is,,,,,,,,,  but there is just something so special and magical in you Moms jewelry box.  I would sit for hrs just looking, even though I have seen them all so many times before.  And when my Daughter was small she would do the same thing, and then dress in my clothes and wear my shoes she was so sweet looking.  

And now when I take out that small trunk like box, it is like going through Moms jewelry box all over again.   How strange that something so small can hold so many memories of the past. In side that small box are some very special pieces  not just jewelry either. Some day I will do a post on it, and show you all what is inside my box of memories...   I know this was not a very Valentine  post but Valentine's Day is a day of  Love and Memories, and the box is my Valentine  to share with all of you,,,, for you all are so very special to me,  I am very humbled to have you all as dear friends.  So Happy Valentines Day to you all, may your small box of memories be full..  OH and Happy Pink Saturday as well.   Have a great weekend. 

I hope you enjoyed my post and photos, until next time.

God Bless;

Hugs;

Alaura

Hello Alaura, your post is so sweet today. First I think the pink handle on the wood is a hoot. Next your story of your mom just made me miss my mom so much. A treasure from our mother is the most precious one of all.

I hope Valentine's Day and PS was wonderful for you. You are so sweet to visit and wish me well from my surgery. I appreciate it so much.

Hugs...Jeanne

Hi there, I remember looking thru my mothers jewlery box when I was young too, it was sort of magical, with all the bling and sparkle. I love the pink box. I think I'm addicted to decorative boxes!
