Green Box of Goodies.

Look at this trove
Treasures untold
How many wonders can one cavern hold?


I remember sitting in the master bathroom of the house I grew up in. I'd have 3 jewelry boxes pulled out from under the sink and I just sit there - looking.

To this day... I love sifting through my Mom's old jewelry boxes. I don't know what it is about them, but it's like every time I discover something new - even though the contents have hardly changed over the years.

This particular box that I tackled tonight has bits of my mom, myself, my sister, my grandparents and just life in general. I thought I'd share a few pieces and possibly more in another post... If momma permits.

I love this darling little ring. I have no idea who's it was and how they got it (Mom?). It reminds me of the dishes we have in the cabinet though.


If this doesn't scream 80's I don' know what does.


I have no comment on the following earrings. hehe.


The watches are my favorite. I absolutely love these tiny little things. Maybe I can wear them someday when my wrists shrink. Mom?


This one is the best.


I mean how freaking cute is the little cover?


Anyway, I hope you enjoyed that little peek into my Mom's jewelry box - I know I always do!


  1. Update: just googled the watch company... which has columbas and then Cincinnati roots - a building I used to pass all the time near the University of Cincinnati!

  2. I love this post! I would definately like to see more if your mum doesn;t mind ;0)

  3. LOVE IT!! Thanks for sharing :)

  4. Something about these boxes interested me as a child. They were in your maternal great grandmother's powderoom and I would just sit and look, too afraid to touch. The contents are not left from those days, the mess is all mine, lol. Mostly leftover mismatches that I can't seem to discard.

    The old gold watch was my mother's faithful companion, so it's very special. The green watch was purchased in Switzerland, on a trip with my mother, she bought a matching red one. Funny that it had Cincinnati roots! The Delft ring (with the windmill) came from your paternal great grandmother, she was the blue & white queen of my life.

    I never mind your peeks and comments, I'm amazed you are interested.
