Early Birthday Present
These were a early birthday present from my in-laws. No my birthday isn't for another week. However the wrapped present has been sitting on the dinning room table calling my name and taunting me for a week now, and they were kind enough to let me open it now. I don't think I could have waited any longer ;)
I can't decide whether to use these to corral sewing notions or to go find a powder puff and use them for what I think was their orginal purpose? What do you think?
I love how when light shines through the lid of the big one, pink magically appears on the underside!
They are made of Italian alabaster and are too pretty to not be seen. The larger one, with painted roses, is roughly six inches in diameter, the smaller one, decorated with a magnolia is about 4.
