Me and my shadow box

Momma got creative this weekend and used an extra one of her family's antique type cases to make a shadow box for my treasures.

A type case is a compartmentalized wooden box (or drawer) used to store movable type used in letterpress printing.

A shadow box is a case containing an object or objects presented in a thematic grouping with artistic or personal significance. The grouping of the objects and the depth effect created by their relative heights from the backing creates a dramatic visual result.

Isn't it awesome?


  1. That is awesome pants! I think my friend Violet's mom has one of those too- she stores little toys and trinkets in it.

    Is that a dirigible on the top? Cool!


    1. Thanks! I'm pretty excited. And yes, that's a little tiny dirigible on top - good eye!

  2. That's a perfect place to display your treasures when you aren't using them!
