Papa's Hanky Box

For Christmas. We had a happy childhood up in Wandin (then, country Victoria, now outer outer east Melbourne) and went on lots of holidays, caravaning around the countryside. The pic on the front is at Currumbin Bird Park and sets the mood. I've used red everywhere because Dad's a fireman to the core, and the button is from his old Army something or other (ex-Reserve Army). Properly sentimental! Even the hanky's are purple, for Mum.

It's so very beautiful. I like the inside of the lid the best.

I truly love your boxes. I have a vintage one that I picked up at a charity shop but have never seen anyone making them. They are all beautiful and your shell lamp is wonderful.

Thanks for that! I love making them and have more than I'm using really, but they just keep wanting to be made! xx
