10. Cassette tapes

that belonged to my dad. Old comedies. Some Dixieland Jazz that he used to like.

He died in 2002 and I still haven't been able to listen to them.

From my MIL, we got her "bong" clock...wood with a glass front and pendulum, it makes a nice bong noise on the hour and I always loved it.

Also, I got her hand egg beater. The kind you have to turn the handle on. A bottle of "Joy" perfume that hubby gave her when he was in Europe back in the 1950s. It's a tiny bottle with a green leather case. I don't even know if she ever used it.

And...what I wanted most of all...the Swarovski crystal snail someone gave her that she had stashed away and never displayed. I have it in a clear plastic case on my dresser.

Oh, and I almost forgot...a wooden blanket chest...I think it's maple.
