At Goodwill yesterday i found a teacup and a lovely ornate box labeled exotic teas. A perfect match? Yes. Perfect for storing my sentimental goodies? Yes.
Inside of the box are paint chips of my favorite colours (mint green, a blush rose, plum, etc.), a small russian box (upper right hand corner), a vintage key (lower left hand corner), my international coins (mostly euros, all in the little silk bag), my money in bills, a fantastic handmade birthday from one of my best friends, J-Lo (Madeleine Jordan-Lord; it's under all of the other things, sorry babe), a fruity tea-bag in lieu of potpourri, and a teacup full of my favorite little trinkets.
Inside of the teacup are a peacock feather, two crystals, some sea glass, some coral, a vintage paisley hairpin, and a vintage earring.
Isn't it all divine? I'm going to call it my 'happy box'.
