Childhood Treasures: Sugar N Spice

Someone made this for me when I was a baby (dated 1974). It is made of some type of ceramic, but very heavy and extremely durable. The little dolls appear to be the Holly Hobbie type. I remember putting random things inside the flower pot at the bottom of it – fake flowers, real flowers, candles, and probably pieces of toys. Today I don’t have anything in it. Perhaps I will fill it with little treasures that I find – things like tiny feathers or loose change.

It amazes me that it hasn’t broken in the several moves that I’ve made over the years. I currently have it hanging in my art/meditation room, where I put other things that make me joyful.
