What’s Inside My Cigar Box?


Why would you want to know WHAT’S IN MY CIGAR BOX?

You know how many ladies magazines feature what’s in “their” handbag? I decided it was time to go through some goodies of mine from childhood and feature what might be hiding inside. As you can see, 80s toys, accessories (my necklace collection!), scented-erasers and rainbows. I also had a major obsession with Minnie Mouse and her cat Figaro.

Same song, different verse. As much as I’ve changed in some ways, I’m still the same in others.

See my collection of twist-up necklaces? My favorite one is missing, not sure where or if I can find it! I loved to switch these up with different colors and styles of dresses as a little girl. The one that’s missing had popsicles and beads.

Does anyone remember toting around ‘Pocket Pretties’ ?

    I think I had that sheep necklace when I was a kid too. Cigar boxes really are great for keeping mementos in! I have one where I keep all my ticket stubs, cookie fortunes and other randoms things. 🙂

      Yes! It’s a card with seeds on sticks to plant in the ground — I must have just stashed this in here before ever using it!
