Pretty Please

When I was little, my mother’s jewelry box held an endless fascination for me. It didn’t matter that the contents never changed. There was always that possibility of finding something magical whenever I lifted up the lid. It wasn’t just a jewelry box, it was a magic box. Even now, I adore secreting things inside boxes. It doesn’t have to be a box, it can be any sort of container. But if the container is pretty and vintage and has connotations of royalty then that's even better. Vintage Crown mason jars with the Crown logo impressed on the side and on the glass insert are perfect for holding a pretend princess’ pretty things.
So when life is a little rough and a little blue then the thing to do is open up a magic box and play with vintage ribbons, lace, beaded hairpins and lovely, lovely pearl necklaces.
I’m linking up to A Beach Cottage and Good Life Wednesdays.
