I keep all of my Wilton supplies in it, along with cake decorating ideas and instructions, birthday candles, food coloring, et cetera. I usually just reach in and grab what I need, but this time I dug through it and discovered some long forgotten treasures!
They're pewter candle holders that I had when I was little. I remember my mom using them on my birthday cakes growing up and I thought it would be fun to polish them and use them for Abbey. Aren't they fun? My favorites are the fish and the turtle!
There are only six so I had to add a lone candle, but she was still thrilled. They're super heavy so they sunk down into the icing and weren't really noticeable in our pictures. Too bad.
My mom was good about saving so much stuff from my childhood years. I'm afraid that I've not been as good about keeping treasures like these for my own kids. It's so hard to know what to keep and what to discard, isn't it? Do any of you have any great ideas or guidelines for keeping sentimental treasures???
