Welcome to Day 9 of my countdown towards my online course Capturing Family History in a Book of My Things! (begins on January 16, 2022). Each day I am sharing a story about a family object, including tidbits of my process of putting it together. I hope this gives you some ideas and inspires you to come up with your own stories. And of course I’d love it if you join the course😉

Today I am changing it up a bit: I made a video of my mom’s costume jewelry box. Click to see what’s inside!

My mom and dad in Florida, 1966

The above photo is from when we were living in Florida in 1966. Mom is wearing one of the yellow ear clips that’s still in that box I have! Mom was quite the fashionista in those days. She still dresses quite nicely, actually.
