my heart skipped a beat...

I recently received a gift from someone I love. It's vintage, and therefore, used, but I think that adds to the charm. Want to see?

little box

oooh...little boxes are sure to bring good things! (especially from Marshall Field's)

What's this? Not what you were expecting? Who knew that thimbles came in such fancy boxes?!

But as you can see, this box was made purely for holding this very shiny, very lovely thimble.

It's no engagement ring, but it looks nearly as pretty...

(by the way, the person who gave this to me was my grandpa!)
