As a continuation to the Valentine's theme, I wanted to share with you an item that I purchased several years ago. It is a silver satin fabric, heart shaped box, made completely by hand many decades ago. On lifting the lid, I found a hand embroidered message lovingly stitched inside with pale blue silk.
Many happy returns of the day
Odette & Baby
I wonder what Odette had placed inside for the lucky Margo to enjoy.
It rests on my dressing table now, where I store a 1920's wedding camisole and wax flower garland.
**Sigh** I do so love treasures from the past....
