Pink Saturday - Heart-shaped Box

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound hosts Pink Saturday. Stop by her Place to see the many other Pretty Pink items that Precious Pink Participating People are Putting on display.






A thoughtful friend gave me this precious little heart-shaped box several years ago. It's covered with pink roses. There's a gold edging in the middle with a clasp that allows for it to be open. It's just big enough to keep the precious teacher pin she bought for me. I keep it on my nightstand and look at it several times a day. I think warm thoughts of my friend each time I see it.






The picture in the back is of my first grandchild, Lauren Elise and her Daddy, my baby boy. Nineteen years later, and I still mist up when I look at this shot. He was so proud of himself, and he held her so tenderly.

Happy Pink Saturday!

oh what a wonderful post and trinket box is so sweet. I said on someone elses blog that it's not until you stop and think about a colour that you suddenly realize how it plays a part in your life. take care, Judith

What a beautiful setting, a valued trinket box with so many fond memories, then a photo of your son and grand daughter behind it. No wonder you look at it every day.

Happy Pink Saturday, Sally.

You know I love hinged boxes, and this one is so pretty and very special. And, I do love sons and their babies. I have some of those precious pictures, too.

That is such a special trinket, Sally. I love looking at some of the special things I've gotten through the years --which remind me of important friends and family members.

Love the picture of your son and his baby. There was a time that I never believed that any of my three sons would turn out to be great fathers. All of them have. Amazing!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Kim said...

What a beautiful box, and what a sweet friend! I love it! Thanks for stopping by my blog--and I apologize for not having my pink up yet--my husband was working on refurbishing an old laptop, (yeah!), but in order to get it to newwork with our other computers and be able to get online, he had to keep messing with our network system in the house,and I could not get on after a certain point last night!

The good news? He was successful and now we have a laptop!!!
Happy Pink Saturday--

Hey Sally...love the trinket box and how you have it sitting in front of that precious photo...

I don't put pictures of the family in any room but my study and I have two bookcases full of them..some are when they were little and some are recent but it just gives me the greatest comfort knowing I can come in here and be surrounded by all these sweet faces and memories..

Thanks for coming by girl...we are just ready for a change..we have never lived in one place this long..we have nothing in mind right now...just may wait awhile and see how the market goes...take care girl & have a great weekend!
