Remembering Joe

Vicki took a fantastic class in shadowbox making a few weeks ago at Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle. She made a box to honor her late dad, Joe Legman, who jumped out of the sky with the 101st Airborne on D-Day. She had such a good time and the results were so wonderful (as you can see), she’s got plans for more. Stay tuned.

Detail of Joe

Vicki included a photo of Joe's regiment, his compass, a sketch he made of one of his buddies and the clicker the G.I.s used to identify each other in battle.


  1. mmmmm, nice job ~ getting me inspired, thanks!

  2. That looks so nice. I love shadow boxes, the girls and I recently made one too.

  3. What a beautiful idea and family heirloom!
