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 tender 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
Touch Of Cinnamon

    • I’m not sure why, Sewchet. I know the first image disappeared for some unknown reason, but the other images further down the page, were ok. When I next go down to the office I’ll check to see whats happening. Thank you so much for coming to take a look, it’s appreciated. 🙂

              • Thanks Touch. Could you possibly get it up before I have my afternoon hot milky drink?. Only I dont want to be taken by surprise and spill my hot creamy cocoa all over the place as soon as you allow me to feast my eyes on your lovely pink box. 😦

                • Sorry for the delay, I had to take a dip in a cool bath as it’s now really hot here.

                  Is it hot where you are?

                  As for the pic, I’m having a problem getting it up. I don’t know what’s going on, this has never happened to me before. Any suggestions?

    • I asked another blogger to take a look and they could see the images, so I’m not so sure what’s happening, Sewchet. If you scroll down through my Posts, the box is on there, but the first image isn’t showing up. I’ll try to remedy that too.

      Thank you for taking the time to come say hi 🙂

  1. Success! The first image is beautiful (still can’t see the others, but never mind). Wisteria is my favourite climber too, but I’m not lucky enough to have any:(

    • Thank you for your lovely words, it’s really kind of you. For some reason the images stopped being available, so I added them again and updated the post. Everything seems to be ok with them so far 🙂
