My Little Soapbox

Better late than never! Some time ago there was a meme at Lisa's Tarnished and Tattered to decorate this little soapbox available from Target. I started working on it...but I was slow!! I finally finished it and I am quite pleased.

I didn't want to cover the box totally...I liked the texture of it.

The picture is my mom and dad on their wedding day with my mom's dad.








The locket was my mother's.







The double heart was a ankle bracelet my dad bought my mother. She wore it and I wore it many years when they were quite popular.

CeeKay, I am almost speechless with love for this work of art. Note that I said "almost" because a comment requires words. What an heirloom of beauty you created.

You should be pleased..it's not only beautiful but full of sentiment too. Maybe it's not too late for me to make my own soapbox. LOL

Happy belated anniversary!

Hi Ceekay,
It is always so much fun to catch up with you.
Your soapbox creation is just gorgeous. I love all the little treasures you added to make it so special. Love the pic of your mom, dad and grandpa.

Happy Anniversary too. You look stunning in your fancy dancy dress.
Your grandkids are adorable. Oh and I love the cabinet you placed between your washer and dryer. That is too perfect. Wish I could do that.

Hope you are doing well these days. Continued prayers for you.
