This is a copy of their wedding invitation.
December 25, 1921. I made a Christmas box for their Christmas wedding.
Mr. Cox retired from the railroad so I created a train box next to a picture from his retirement.
This is a copy of the signature of a letter Thomas wrote to Nellie. I love how he signed it “I’m Your Friend”!
The bible represents the fact that Thomas and Nellie raised their children in a Christian home, and were very active in their church.
I love how shadow boxes can tell a story. If you have one you have made I would love to see pictures of it! I am considering writing these descriptions down and attaching them to the back of each box. What do you think?
If you want to try one for yourself you can find one here.
