Love the old chocolate box with huge satin bow - chocs don't come wrapped like that anymore!
The cards date from the 40s and 50s - postcards, birthday cards and some Christmas cards which I am hoping to do something inspirational with nearer the time - need some ideas if anyone has any! Here are some close-ups
Whilst rooting through a cupboard also found this doll buried at the back - I'm sure she was loved one day (despite looking a bit scary). I would think she is made from celluloid. She is a bit delicate but has some lovely hand-made clothes, including a Victorian nightie. Trixie was born in 1918 so this doll may have belonged to her or perhaps her mother? Trixie was a cousin of my grandmothers.
