Tuesdays Treasures And A Give-Away Win

My treasure this week is something my aunt got me when I was a child.  It's very tiny and was hard to photograph - that's a quarter it's next to.

It's a little pewter box.  The sides are also covered with unicorns.  As I recall, like every other little girl in the country, I was obsessed with unicorns.  This box has a secret - the little heads on either side of the big one are earrings.  They come off, and inside is a necklace too.

The lid of the box becomes a pin.

I'm not into unicorns anymore, but I still treasure it.  To see more treasures, go to Clare's Craftroom for Treasure Tuesdays, or link up and show off your own!

And the win - I tell you I was THRILLED to win Cheryl's latest pattern give-away, aren't these too darling??????

Too, too cute!!!  Thank you so much, Cheryl, I can't wait to make some up - I think they'll make marvelous Christmas gifts!  I know, I know...I said I wasn't making anything this year....but how in the world can I resist these!  Naturally I'll have my own set too.  *G*  Although it might be hard to stick pins in something so darling!

Have a great week, everyone!

I only have one thing to say: "Never play leap frog with a unicorn."

I just love your unicorns. I've never seen anything like that before and can imagine how much you would have enjoyed it when you were little. You're lucky that none of the parts have been lost over time.

That little unicorn box is so dear. I can just imagine the reaction a young girl would have receiving a gift like that.

That pattern is beautiful, too. Happy sewing!

That is a great box - to be able to fit so much in a tiny space. And unicorns!

Martha said...

Just like everyone else, I have never seen anything remotely like this little box. It's amazingly cute and clever -- a lovely gift for a little girl and a wonderful treasure to share.

That box is awesome. I can't believe how small it is. You are so lucky that you still have it. It is a treasure.

I love seeing your Tuesday's Treasures! Such an adorable and magical box ~ what a nice Aunt you have :)

Sharon said...

Love your little treasure! I had one just like it, only with cats! I don't remember where I got it - maybe my Mom. I never actually wore any of the jewelry - I was afraid I would lose it!

Dani said...

Oh my gosh, I have that same unicorn box. Yes, all us girls at that time were crazy for unicorns and I remember getting this for my birthday. I am so glad to see that you enjoy the memories of yours as well.

Shari said...

I had one of those little boxes as a child - not sure what happened to it. I had flower earrings...

Darling pincushion patterns...

I had a little pewter box like that ... only mine was teddy bears. :)

Ursula said...

I bought each of my girls one of those boxes when they were very small. They were cat boxes since they were both obsessed with cats.

I love your Lemon tree design. Very creative. Started singing the song as soon I as saw it. Thank you for the pdf.

Valerie said...

Love the treasure and love your gifts!

Tanya said...

I've got one of those pewter boxes too! Mine has oak leaves as the earrings and a bigger oak leaf as the necklace... I wonder if I can find it in my jewelry box...

Rebekah said...
