I absolutely love shadow boxes. They are wonderful for nostalgic, sentimental items that you just don't know what to do with. A couple of Christmas' ago, Mom and Dad bought Russ a shadow box and I put his old boy scouts stuff in it. We have had it hanging in our apartment since. He loved it and I love that his old stuff isn't just stuck in a box somewhere not being appreciated.
When I got my box of baby stuff I knew exactly what I wanted to do with part of it. I wanted to put it in a shadow box and hang it up by Russ' Boy Scouts shadow box. The pink dress at the top is what I wore home from the hospital when I was born. The pink bonnet beside it goes with it, but I actually wore the white bonnet underneath it. The pink outfit and bonnet at the bottom were purchased by my Daddy for me. The shoes were just cute and looked nice. Mom said that they weren't from any special occasion. I just wore them when I was a baby.
Russ' shadow box was in his office/Chloe's room, but I moved it out to the living room and hung it up beside mine. I just love them!
