Childhood Memories: My trinket chalet

Childhood Memories: My trinket chalet

Sometimes something happens that makes you think. It makes you think back and remember things you haven't thought of for ages, of things you weren't aware you even still knew. That happened to me recently. Unfortunately the thing that happened was my aunt passing on suddenly and unexpectedly.

I found myself thinking back to my childhood, and of the presents my aunt and uncle would always bring back from their often exotic trips, in the days when exotic trips weren't quite so common place. A couple of gifts stand out - the native Indian doll in national dress complete with a white leather fringed skirt and this chalet trinket box.

I thought I still had the doll but I couldn't find it, perhaps I just haven't remembered where it is yet or perhaps I don't have it after all - either way I remember what she looked like, and memories of admiring her.

My chalet was easier to find, infact it didn't need finding at all because it wasn't lost, it's been on the bookcase in our spare bedroom for many years now.
