Let me take you on a tour of the inside. The first things I put in here are the old planters. This was a collection that I inherited from my Aunt Carole after she passed away. The one on the top shelf was her Mother's (my Ba Ba). I remember it was on the little shelf on the side of the kitchen cabinet. This is what started my Aunt to start collecting the others that are in the curio after Ba Ba died. I plan to pass them on to my Allison. The girl on the top is a December lady figurine. This was also my Aunt Carole's and since we are both December babies, I was the obvious person to inherit this. The picture next to it is of me at about 3 years of age sitting on my Aunt Carole's lap. The middle shelf houses 3 Willow Tree Christmas ornaments from my friend, Sherie. I collect Willow Trees. I didn't want to wrap the ornaments up and put them away all year so I decided to put them in here for now. The blue stoneware angel is from a friend of mine that passed away 4 years ago from cancer. Barbara knew I loved angels and I've named this one after her. I know she's one of my angels up there watching over me. The rose was also my Aunt Carole's. It will be moved to my bedroom as soon as that room gets redone. Last but not least, the bottom shelf. The picture is of Aunt Carole. This was taken before she got sick. It's how I remember her. The other things are from my daughter, Allison. The little bottle of sand art that she did in kindergarten. The rock she found for me because there was pink in it. Another little stone (in front of the picture) that she tumbled in her rock tumbler because it came out pink. There is also a little silver frog with a crown on it next to the stone. It's something she picked out when we were at Put-In-Bay last fall. If you click on the picture, you should be able to see a close up of everything.
