My wonderful husband deploys and what does he do?? He actually buys us gifts! What an amazing guy! I assume he bought the duck box for my mom because she has ducks. She will love it! It's a puzzle that you have to take apart to get to the box. It's made out of some red wood, but it doesnt smell like cedar, the only red wood I know of. I dont know what trees grow locally in Kuwait.
And this jewelry box is for Joe's mom. It's about 4" by 6" and has a very soft red lining. The leaves and flowers are a metal inlay in the wood, probably brass. But it has amazing detail.
