Not what I expected to find....





A former 'manicure set' case had the Katie treatment
I removed the original lining and relined it with paper.... and I found a vintage newspaper behind the lining of the lid that had been used to pad it out. I think it is Dutch, and dates from 1935. If anyone can translate it, please let me know.  It now lives back in the box- in the lid, for me to admire.... and all because I couldn't resist this 50p box in a charity shop!
