Book, Bird & Necklace...

My grandparents are turning 75 this month,
so i will be doing "A Story in a Box" for them
& this is one of the beginning pieces.
My grandmother works for a toy store & 
orders all of the kid books, so i wanted 
to find a child's book from the year that she was born.
This book, The Story About Ping, 
was published in 1933 (I know I was a year off)
& perfectly matches the blocks I found for their initials.
I will post pics of the finished product later.

 I picked up from the antique store while I was there
