As I mentioned several weeks back, we are in the process of cleaning out my mother-in-law's (Helena's) condo. Numerous family treasures have been uncovered and thankfully, many are marked with names and even dates. Helena is truly a genealogists dream.
This is a beautiful box of candy. Back in the day, Helena modge podged EVERYTHING. This is one of her "art" pieces. Although the box has been preserved, the writing on the bottom, which is the genealogy portion of the story, was not....at least not 100%. I had to turn it from side to side in various lights to fully complete the story.
