“It’s the little things in life, really.”


I can’t tell you how many times I’ve said that phrase. And seriously, it’s true. It’s the little things in life that tend to matter and make us happy at the end of the day.

That’s why, when I received this gift in the mail from my aunt, I realized that sometimes it can be the Dinkee things in life.

The note from my aunt said, “These were a wedding gift to my mother way back in the 40’s. I have enjoyed using them and thought you might like them.”

On the outside, it’s a very old, beautiful box, but on the inside…

There is amazing retro art along with a hilarious poem!

I am so thrilled that my aunt thought of me and to receive something this special. I hope I can take good enough care of these and pass them on to someone who will be even more blown away by this truly irreplaceable item from the 1940’s.
