Show and Tell Friday

Hello, Ladies!
Today, I am showing you a sweet little, bone china box that was given to me by my dearest friend, Jane. She bought it for me years ago, on an outing to Ojai, California, a week or so before my wedding. We both knew that my soon-to-be husband and I would be relocating to North Carolina shortly after we married and so there would be very few girlfriend outings anymore. This box reminds me of the wonderful afternoon we spent in Ojai, perusing the shops and chatting up a storm.
Aren't the details beautiful?
Above is a view to show you how small the box is.

Lovely memories...
Love,
Elizabeth

It is beautiful! Girl friends are wonderful as are the memories of times spent together laughing and sharing.
My son brought me and his future bride a bautiful bone china box from Rome, Italy after spending 2 years there. I treasure it!
Were the leaves gorgeous yesterday?
What a kind sweet thing for your husband to do. Hope your afternoon was wonderful.

Elizabeth,
Isn't Beth the greatest? I have never met her in person, but love the things she shares. I am an early morning seminary teacher by calling actually. It used to be an appointment (kind of like being called on a mission), but this year they have changed some things and it is now a calling through the stake. There are full time teachers who teach several classes during the day, they have college educations and are well versed in the scriptures, their students are lucky! :) They also get paid for what they do, it is their careers and employment. We who teach early morning are considered volunteers there is no monetary reimbursement, but many blessings! We used to get reimbursed for our mileage, but now that it is a calling that may change, but we will all still do it...Thanks for asking, if you have any other questions please feel free to ask...hope you will come back and visit.
By the way your china box is beautiful...I love little treasures like that and that your dearest friend gave it to you makes it all the more special.
Have a great weekend.
hugs
tricia
