The Memory Boxes That Fill a Home
Everyone has a few keepsakes stashed away. A Memory box with childhood memories, photos of family and friends and other keepsakes.
They are the things you collect throughout life that remind you of a certain person or a special day.
I'm going to share with you a few of my favorite memory boxes that fill my home and a few tips to help you preserve your precious keepsakes.
Here you will find a variety of beautiful wedding keepsake boxes, Military display cases, baby keepsake boxes and wooden memory boxes.
Memory Keepsake Boxes - Keepsake Box
I have a few photo boxes in my closet. I started collecting them to organize old photos.
I have one photo box that has become very special to me. It looks just like the other boxes but it has become a storage place for my children's keepsakes.
Keepsake boxes come in many different shapes and sizes they are as different as the contents that they hold.
Choose a special keepsake box to hold your special items. You never know how long they will remain stored away in a little box.
I had every intention of displaying my items but life has kept me very busy and I just keep adding more and more to the box.

The Special Contents of My Memory Box
What To Put In A Keepsake Box
My memory box contains two handmade dolls. The dolls were made for Sofia and Abby when Sofia was still in the NICU.
It also contains two hospital bands and the leads our daughters wore their first few months in the hospital.
It is amazing how a few simple objects can take you back to a different place in your life.
Our daughters are tough three year olds now and we have a beautiful baby boy.
Many things have changed in our lives since we placed those items in our memory box. It is easy to forget the tough times but my memory box serves as my time portal taking me back to the little room in the hospital with two fragile babies.
It also serves as a reminder that anything is possible.
A Place To Keep Memories
I am always on the lookout for the perfect memory box.
I would like to have a special box for my childhood memories of my mother,
a memory box for each of my children and perhaps
a special keepsake box for my husband and me.
My favorite Keepsake Box
This is a very personal small, wooden keepsake box. This box has an inscription on the inside that says " forever friends, forever true"
This keepsake box is a perfect gift for a friend on any special occasion. It is a small box that can sit on a dresser or nightstand and remind your friend that she is someone very special.
Wedding Shadow Box
Bridal Keepsake Box
I wish I could say that my beautiful wedding gown was displayed in a mahogany shadow box in my home. Instead, like most brides, I have it neatly stored in a hope chest at the foot of my bed.
I take it out once a year in the winter. I admire the bead work and the detail in the lace.My precious dress, that was once loved so much is now stored with the winter blankets.
It is a shame that something so significant is so easily forgotten.
My other wedding trinkets are scattered throughout my home. The unity candle adorns my dresser; the center pieces are stored with the Christmas decorations.
They deserve a special place in my home. I would love a beautiful wedding box to be passed on to my daughters.
I am very proud of the time I spent in the military.
I served in the Army for ten years as a firefighter.
I asked my husband for a military shadow box several years ago. He gave me a beautiful wooden shadow box to display all of my military items and a flag that was flown over ground zero in New Your city. I had the box stored in the closet for over a year.
I was so excited to put it together but never seemed to find the time.
He surprised me for our anniversary with my military shadow box complete with flags, patches, ribbons and ID tags.
What goes into a military shadow box? It is really up to the individual. My shadow box has a picture that was taken of me when I was flying on the back of a Huey. It was my favorite assignment.
It also has my ACU name tags because I spent the majority of my time in a work uniform or flight suit.
I would advise that you look up the proper placement of ribbons and crest if you are going to include them in your memory box. They should be displayed as worn on the military uniform.
