A box of one's own....
my inspiring picture of the day is this gorgeous knick knack box which was featured in Notebook magazine
i got my first jewellery box at a really young age - a pink one with painted ballerinas on the lid...i used to enjoy putting things in there, my baby jewellrey, buttons, brooches and secret letters....
This box reminds me of my grandmother who always had lots of little boxes of interesting things - knick knacks like these, another box full of family photos, another with pretty hankies - she even had a whole drawer in her kitchen just for her odds and ends was probably her junk drawer but my sister and I used to love going through it to see what new things she had placed in there....


  1. OMG I can so relate to this post...I remember my first jewelry box...a boy in my class gave it to me for my 6th birthday. Aqua blue satin lining with a twirling ballerina. I loved it!

    Oh...and the grandmothers' special boxes and drawers. Gosh I used love love going through those. So sad I wasn't around to go through them when they passed on...I would have loved to save some of those special treasures.

    Thanks for sharing!
