Treasures come in many forms. Most adults think of treasures as items of great monetary value.. that is, most adults who don't have some attachment to everything and anything that came from those before us - I often wonder if all genealogists or family historians aren't pack-rats in this way.
Kids are a bit different, especially in their younger years - a treasure can be anything from a rock collection, a precious flower given to Mommy, shells found on the beach, or a big box of costume jewelry to dig through on a rainy afternoon.
Today I show a box such as this, overflowing with such treasures. This box belonged to my Grandmother and the kids in our family have, over the past 15 or so years, enjoyed visiting it again and again to dig, discover, and try on all of Grandma's "treasures". After looking through it again recently, I have a new found appreciation for Grandma's style and will be presenting some of the items from it in the coming weeks.
