This is my.....knick knack/jewellery box.

I do have jewellery boxes, yes multiple because I have kept every single piece of jewellery since I was a little girl other then those pieces (and there are many that I have lost), but I enjoyed them whilst I had them...I also have jewellery bowls that have a rotating favourite pieces...

Thus here is "My favourite knick knack/ jewellery box"....

In it's former life it was my Great Grandfathers Tobacco cabinet... My grandmother unfortunately threw out all the tobacco pipes, I salvaged some of the tobacco tins and the cleaners for the pipes... but since I inherited it when I was 13 years old.... it has been reincarnated as my jewellery and junk box....


Thus knick knacks from childhood, for example the Garfield cat from an old best friend...

The pink china giraffe was a knick knack from my mother's bedroom as a young girl....


jewellery loved, junk and otherwise....

boxes below.... more loved jewellery, junk and stuff...

'Thankyou' to Angela for meme and Anastasia's for this weeks great theme...

OMG what an amazing cabinet. You're so lucky to inherit such an exquisite piece. I love that silver pendant in the bottom photo with the blue stone.

Also LOVING the tobacco cabinet.
I bet is still smells like tobacco. We had a pipe of my Great Grandfather's when I was a kid & I used to love to get it out & smell it.
