it's autumn - in a box!


I put this together for my cousin Kelly in Windsor. I saw one like it on Mrs. Staggs' blog, Rosa made it for her. It is a collection of little fall reminders, in a decorated cigar box.

Inside it holds a little assortment of ephemera, old photographs and autumn scene postcards, brand spankin' new pencils (very back-to-school), vintage ribbons and buttons in fall colours and some crafty items for fall.

I'm off to post it today. It smells yummy because of the scented potpourri tarts. I don't know if she has a melting contraption, but they made the box smell good and hopefully they won't melt on the way to Ontario!

This is too cool!! I'm totally swiping this idea for my best friend. Me too, kind of, since it's my favorite season. I collect acorns, so have already been on the lookout for those.

Drat! Acorns! I missed acorns and pinecones, so obvious, I meant to put them in and forgot before I sent it off.... acorns...

What a fun idea! All sorts of "In a Box" ideas are now flowing in my mind; Birthday in a box, Haloween in a box...
I enjoy your posts. You are so creative. I am inspired.
Thank you!

I'm so glad that you like it. I have big plans to make "winter in a bag", "spring in a can" and "summer in a jar"...

I saw this on Clarice's blog and thought it was such a charming idea. I'm going to make one too!
