tuesday treasures.

are you ready to open up the final two boxes?



both boxes contain watches! these were again given to me by my grandma, who is very generous with sharing her treasures.



and again, i'm not sure of the significance. i'm pretty sure my great- grandmother may have owned them...
they're both pretty old-school wind-up watches. and i LOVE the silver, diamondy one. i think if i get married one day, this will DEFINITELY be my something old.

heaps more tuesday treasures over at clare's craftroom.

The contents of the boxes have been fascinating.

Wonderful that you have these heirlooms - I think we take watches a bit for granted these days but at one time they were carefully saved for and often purchased for a signifigant event. Lucky you.
