Treasure Box

While sharing my published wall hanging with a friend at Thanksgiving, she said that she had a large collection of photos and ephemera that she wanted to send to me if I wanted them.  If I wanted them - was there any question?  Thank you so much Gwen.

The package arrived a few days ago.  Want a peek inside?


There are photo albums and tapestries.








Handwritten diaries: 1923, 1925, 1926, 1927 & 1928 -  I believe these are all from the same person.


There are many Cabinet Cards.


Dozens of interesting snapshots.




Lots of ephemera - peering into past lives.
































Don't you just love a treasure box?

Now that's what I call a friend! I'm sure you'll have hours of fun reading the diaries, sorting through the photos...

OMG - what a friend and what a present! You lucky girl, you! Hope you have a lot of fun with it.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog about my 100th follower giveaway. I can't seem to get hold of Dorthe to send her gift to her - I will hold fire for another week and hope she contacts me!
