tiny treasures

This is a collection of tiny cuties I keep in this sweet cabinet in my powder room...I'll give you a tour....

I bought this little cabinet from a bath and bed shop before they went out of business...years ago....its a medicine cabinet and can be hung on the wall..........oh no, there is my reflection....so sorry!!!


Top shelf has a jade snuff bottle, pill box, tiny geodes, china doll set and my Girl Scout pins.....yes, I was even a senior scout and camp counselor.......so long ago!!!


Center shelf has a mini coin set of my birth year.....never mind.........another pill box, a muscle man from my son's collection that I found one day while cleaning out the hall closet, made me smile so I had to save it!!!  The two tie tacs are my Dad's union pins, one for 30 years and one for 40 years........two more snuff bottles, perfume bottle and my sorority pin from school..........talk about hanging on to things!!!


The bottom shelf has perfume bottles, another pill box and my son's Word of Life pin....

Close up of this sweet perfume bottle........I bought it so long ago at a flea market, because Eastman Kodak has its origins here, however, I don't think this is the same Eastman!!!  No matter, its a memory!!! 

Thanks for stopping by.......

I love your little treasures. And they look so at home in that perfect curio for them.
I'm always drawn to teeny tiny things. Even though I LOVE all my cups and saucers, I have an attraction to the lilliputian Demitasse...
Thank you for sharing.
Have a fun week,
Hugs,
Donna

Oh, this was fun seeing what you've kept through the years! Love the little cabinet too. Probably a good thing it's not on the wall as you could move it around sometimes.
Thanks for popping in to see me.
be a sweetie,

It's always fun seeing what others collect. : )
Thanks so much for keeping up with my blog, even though I haven't been around much. The kids and heat this summer have been just zapping all my energy (which is why I think I turned to redoing my dining room!)
Will be back to visiting more blogs when school starts and I actually have quiet time to concentrate!

You're on a roll, Cleo! :) I agree, men don't think like we gals do. We need more women home contractors, don't we? Thanks for popping in and giving me a chuckle.
Be a sweetie,

I never though of using pins as decorations! That's a great idea to remember those fond memories!

Thanks for popping in to see my little sun porch! To answer your question, yes, I made the pillow with the redwork. I love to embroidery.
Have a great Sunday and be a blessing,
Shelia ;)

What beautiful treasures! It looks like you have a Friendship's Garden perfume bottle. I have one and yours looks the same.
