Battered, scuffed and missing half its lock, this little blue jewellery box holds treasure I found the other day at my favourite antiques fair.
The blue kept turning up everywhere I looked.
A tattered card of tiny blue glass buttons, made in czechslovakia.
A dazzling paste brooch with
vibrant blue stones.
A Rosary with pale blue glass beads and what looks like a silver cross.
The sweetest chipped enamel horseshoe brooch, with a pair of love birds perched in the centre.
Was I blue? Not at all.
