This box was a dear part of my childhood, a sweet memory.
Okay, so it was not THIS box but one exactly like it! You see, my mother has no idea what happened to OUR box. It hung on the wall, by the rear kitchen door. It was always filled with little Dum Dum lollipops. Cherry, Root Beer, Lime, Lemon...
For years I scoured antique shops, flea markets and
thrift stores looking for one. I searched ebay for over
3 years...then, magically, when I stopped looking,
one appeared. Identical to MY childhood box. I would love to pretend that it IS mine...and on that odd day when I am a bit dizzy
and sleepy, I can actually believe it is!
This box too is filled with Dum Dums of various flavors. It has been quite a hit with Grace and her friends...oh yes! Do please try a lollipop but just take one!

How cute. Did you still have the box at your home in high school?

What a great memory and to start the memory with Grace.

Love it
