Wisteria Keepsake Box

This little box has a special place in my heart. Wisteria Cottage is an imaginary place that I’ve written about in the past. This keepsake box was mentioned in one of those tales and I’m hoping to make more pieces from those stories over the coming months.

Why Wisteria Cottage? The flowering wisteria vine is my favourite flowering plant and I have two growing over an archway in my garden. My stories are/were set around a fictional cottage, so when creating the box, I used my favourite flower/plant.

The box is my first attempt at decorating a paper mache box. I prefer the inside to the outside and would like to redo the lid in particular. The purple crocheted flower on the inside of the lid is the first one I crocheted for a marriage blanket I’m making. This blanket also features in one of my stories. There’s a false bottom inside to place letters, cards and photo’s.

I’ve drawn inspiration for my crafts from past words that I’ve written. Hopefully I’ll continue to draw on this source to create and develop my little crafts and curios.

For anyone that’s interested, if you want a closer look at the detail, just click on the image and it should enlarge.

Warmest Regards

    • Thank you.

      I was looking at your shawls. Stunning. I crochet, but I’m not in the same league as you. The flower on the inside of the box lid, is crocheted. It’s part of a blanket I’ve been doing for ages.

      Again, thank you for stopping by and for your kind comment.
