the treasure trove

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'.

  4. This is gorgeous, I've been wanting a box like this to store my teabags (I swap them from all over the world) and this would be perfect, so jealous. I'll have to keep looking.

  8. Kat,

    I need you to email your outfit asap! Only change in plans--could you email the one you were originally planning on sending over, as well as a few past outfits, such as your Rosie the Riveter outfit, etc, and a short description of your style and what the magazine/feminism means to you / your style inspiration? Thanks SO much. I owe you big time. Any time within the next 24 hours would be golden.
