Every Day in May: 27, Something Old


Family gifts, something old, but the jade ball came in this lovely box from Firenze, Italy.
I think it was a gift for graduation or a birthday.
I loved the box more than the jade ball, truth be told.


I don’t know the story behind the box, never thought to ask.
I imagine it was bought in Laguna Beach at the jewelry store on Main Street.
Painted paper, about 2-inches square.
I finally sold the jade ball (I never wear it) but kept the box, in my keepsakes.

    what is it about boxes? I have friends who, when I give them the box something came in (cause I know they love boxes), don’t even ask what was in the box. They are just so happy to have the box!
