Bring Honor to your Baby

Chinese lore holds that babies born during the Year of the Snake (February 10th 2013–January 30th 2014) will be deep thinkers, great communicators, impressive innovators, and loyal friends. Mark the development of each of these traits in your special little snake with this Year of the Snake keepsake shadowbox. Inspired by the dioramas she assembled as a child, Kerri Lee created these adorable boxes to hold a child's first-year mementos, such as their favorite toy, shoes, or first-year photographs. The felt-lined, painted basswood box can be propped open with the help of a discreet wooden peg, so its pop-out images of an adorable snake and the little one's treasured keepsakes can be displayed at whim. Handmade in New York.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Kerri Lee

With a background in engineering and a love for things vintage and unique, designer Kerri Lee-Sensiba has created a distinctive, original line of gifts and décor for babies and children. Kerri started designing home accessories at her kitchen table, often working late at night making wares and then selling them at local craft fairs. She began exhibiting at trade shows and her products quickly caught the attention of national press and buyers from well-known stores. Now, Tree by Kerri Lee's line of products is made by a team of artisans in a studio housed in a century-old general store building, in a small New York town along the Delaware River. The company name “Tree” is a nod to the responsibly harvested wood from which many of the products are made, including music boxes, keepsake boxes, clocks, and nursery accessories.

Kerri Lee's creations have been featured in Child, Parents, Parenting, InStyle, Country Living and The New York Times Magazine. collection
