Absolutely fantastic!

I had the same reaction when I first looked at what this box contained, so I'm pleased my record of it gives you the same feeling!

You should start on the next "between wars", while there's still something left to compose and collage. :-)

Tony Harrison, in an interview, talks about the way the violent events of history seem to cancel out joy and meaning." I've always struggled to find a way of uniting my celebratory nature with a way of seeing horrors clearly." The things we keep are like charms that remind us of our meaning.

How very touching....a life in a box.

Steve Bucknell has replied to Cheryl Beal
Yes. I think we all do something similar, though much of our collecting and keeping takes place in virtual space now.

Thanks Rita..."Slendid" sounds like a Lewis Carroll word! "The slendid eels wriggled in the underweaves..." :)

Steve Bucknell has replied to Hilke Kurzke
Yes! All Moet Chandon, with a coins of a different year embedded in each cork. Tokens of great events celebrated with a ritual bottle of champagne!

I came here yesterday "in a hurry".
And I just wanted not to leave without a comment.
As you see this is not good.
At this time of my life I should have known that be silent is also a good sign of emotion.
Your image made me think about a history of life.
But I didn't have enough time to "confess" it here.
And now I miss some important details.
Freud would say that I am resistent, defending myself.
Anyway, this is not important.

Just teasing you, Rita, though I agree with Freud that our verbal slips sometimes are clues to something deeper. If a missing "p" has some rofound significance...feel free to confess! :)

I love this collection, I even see things in here that my parents and grand parents possessed at one time or another...a little like visiting the museum in York with a the domesticity through the years on display

Thanks Lucy. The little vial between the watch and the brooch contains "Benger's Peptonising Powder", it is still half-full of a white chalk-like powder with no discernable taste or smell. I should probably look it up before I try inhaling it!
I think the key with the AA inside it must be to open the roadside AA telephone boxes there used to be. (I think there are just 15 boxes left in the whole country now.)
My favourite thing is the little shooting star brooch; though it has lost some of its gems it still looks good!

Humble treasures are so much better than valuable antiques.

More interesting! Listen to this:
Benger's Peptonising Powder is an extract containing the digestive ferments of the pancreatic juice. When the powder is added to milk is kept at blood heat, these juices partly digest the proteins of the milk and the food, and convert the starch in the food into sugar.
This action may be allowed to go on for five to forty-five minutes, and in the end there may be very little starch remaining unconverted. This makes it a very suitable food for babies and invalids. According to the time allowed for preparation, the milk mixture may be graded to the capacity of the child. As the baby grows, and its own pancreatic juice comes into operation, less time will be required.

Your humor is delicious!! I believe that one of the functions of humor is to help all of us take ourselves less seriously.

Thank you, it's all the Peptonising Powder I've been sniffing!
