Day 116: My Heart Box
This gorgeous wooden heart box with stained glass inlay is a gift from my beloved husband Ron. He made this for me in his shop. I put the watch in the photo to give some idea of scale. The box is about 12 inches tall and 11 inches wide. Inside it has a felt lining. I use it for jewelry and other treasures. Studying the design one notices something extraordinary. The stained glass, which is fragile, is next to three pieces of bamboo, twigs from a tree in our yard. Bamboo is strong and resilient and lasts for a long time. I read it to mean that Ron's love for me is like the bamboo: eternal. What beauty. Thank you, Ron.
