I love pretty packaging and boxes are often kept long after the contents have been enjoyed. One of my favourite things to do is to put a few little goodies in a box and then promptly forget about them. When I rediscover the box I am delighted all over again at the things I have stashed away. The Indian baubles and Chinese streamer in the window of my craft room weren't in a box but I still forgot I had them until today. It felt like Christmas all over again as I remembered the day in December a couple of years ago when my husband bought them for me after I had admired them on a day out.
The aqua box originally contained a gift from my sister and was far too pretty to throw away. It was stored on the top of a wardrobe and I took it down earlier to see what I had put inside......so much fun. We all need to treat ourselves now and then and I don't mean anything expensive but things that will cheer us up, make us feel special even if they were bought by ourselves. The wand was a gift from my daughter, the sparkling powder from a friend and the fairy cake goat milk soap from a Christmas craft fair and I think it is far too lovely to use. Ooo, now I feel like it must be my birthday too:)
Until next time, bye for now x
