It's beautiful!
What a lovely thing to have to remember her by.

I have my grandmother's sewing box too - it's much smaller! - I try not to open it too much as it smells wonderful inside & I don't want to lose that smell - musty wood :)

How fantastic! It is beautiful. I like how it looks against the white wall but picks up similar colors in your bookshelves.

Oj så kul Camilla....har en liknande hemma efter svärmor, det står Rut och datum 24/12 1944, måste vara en julklapp. Jag har en lite låda underst som jag kan dra ut, där har jag alla trådrullar...tar några bilder och lägger ut den på min blogg så får du se...jag använder min flitigt för där ligger nålar, tråd mm och några gamla minnen från Rut. Visst är det ett härlig minne...lyckliga vi äro.

Connie (thepaperdialogues) said...

lovely. what are you planning to do with it?!? why is it empty?

Camilla Engman said...

You are right it is a treasure and I'm lucky.

Ashlee, I just had to go and smell in it after your comment.. just old wood :)

Jenny, vad taskigt att Reidun inte fick några ben på sin ;) Undrar vem som köpt dom.

Inger, ser fram emot en bild.

Connie, I just got it from my mother and haven't decided how to use it yet. Maybe for its purpose.

jie said...

Ja tror att hon har haft benen till den men att dom kommit bort någonstans någongång. Efter mitt förra inlägg så började jag fundera på om Hilding fick något när Karin o Reidun fick sina lådor, och isåfall vad kan han ha fått...

Camilla Engman said...

Det kanske var en verktygslåda, med fin kurbitsmålning på locket. T

Nu kan du titta på min "haberdashery box" ser mörkare ut, men det är mörkt inomhus och solen visar sin frånvaro dock inte vinden.......man behöver mössa, vantar och vindjacka idag i Skåne..fy attan.

Bat said...

Amazing!I can imagine the treasures you found inside the box!

ana ventura said...

wow!! No words :-)

Eva / Sycamore Street Press said...

So incredibly beautiful! And even better because it is a family heirloom. I really cherish the things like this that I have from my family. (Although I don't have anything of this sort...to bad.)

explodingcucumber said...

teresa murfin said...

Camilla this is a treasure-chest! I've been wanting to share with you that I've got one too! It's my grandpa's war chest from the 1940's and I keep the collection of love letters inside that my grandparents wrote to each other just before and during WWII. I've just posted pictures on my weblog. Good luck with your box, I'd love to stay informed about what you're going to do with it!
