A Gift

My Mama found this box at a yard sale recently and it made her think of me (since I'm an avid collector of small treasures and trinkets).  After she heard it's story, she was sold on buying it for me. Its original owner was a tuna fisherman who traveled to and from Indonesia quite often.  He, too, enjoyed bringing home treasures that he found on his many journeys across the globe.  This little box was one of them - he bought it for his wife as a token of his love while he was away.  It's made of Indonesian teak wood, and had a sweet, pink paper lining inside (sadly, my allergies wouldn't tolerate the paper so it had to go).  Now I just have to figure out what to fill it with... any ideas?
