Cavalock and The Raiders of The Lost Jewelry Box

Was clearing the old family home a couple weeks ago and I found this jewelry box in the back of my aunt's cupboard. It's quite a sturdy box, about one and a half times the size of a regular shoe box and I'm guessing it's at least over 50 years old. It's really a weird feeling whenever I unearth something like this (for awhile, it was on a pretty regular basis too!), you feel a tinge of sadness yet you are excited.

Check out the intricate cravings on the lid, it's gorgeous. The old-fashioned lock is rather interesting too. Unfortunately it's empty inside and it definitely needs a good dusting inside and out. I think the outside just needs a good polish and it'll be fine. Geez, I got some much stuff I'm thinking of starting a vintage sale one of these days, maybe before Xmas. But really, would anyone want something like that?

Time for a quick supermart run! Spotted these at the cold section of NTUC Finest. I think they are new, never seen them before anywhere else. They are all from the US and they actually do look rather tempting. You can slide the cheesecake box out and look at the individual slices too.

Oh wow, just remembered exactly a year ago, I was on my way to Italy. Awwww man, now I'm really bummed since I can't travel anymore.... :(
