WOYWW 63: What’s In The Box?

It’s So Hard To Resist A Pretty Box Like This!
Happy What’s On Your Workspace Wednesday, dear friends! Today, it’s time for another rousing edition of everyone’s favorite game – What’s In The Box?



Pretty Boxes Must Contain Pretty Items!
Today’s treasure is a frugal find I originally used for photo storage. When I decided to file my photos differently, I set it aside, and the box sat untouched for quite some time. Eventually, I unburied it, decided it was too pretty to toss, and began thinking of how I could best use it in my craft room.



Sweet Mementos

After much deliberation I thought it would be the perfect place to store cherished mementos…


Old Or New, It’s Up To You!

And precious cards!

So, that’s what’s on my workspace this Wednesday! What’s on yours?

Now, for those of you who are wondering where the kitties are, Tsunami is playing Peek-A-Boo and Legend is making the WOYWW rounds. Did you know that when I’m not around, the boys like to visit their favorite blogs and leave comments for their feline and canine friends?

I look forward to reading your comments. If you’re feeling extra chatty, you can let me know what you think about Blog Hops – I’m donig an informal survey and collecting some wonderful feedback from all of my readers!

Have a wonderful week and when you’re done desk-hopping, enjoy the eye candy at these sites!

  33. Ohhh Snap says:

    It's wonderful to have a treasure box like that, especially when the treasure is mostly flat!

    I like blog hops, but have only done one serial (with a theme) and one small one. Other than that it's the larger, participate when I can and don't sweat it if I don't WOYWW and PTI monthly blog hops. TFS! #128

    I love your great find. It is way to pretty to hide and must be showed off.

    I am hopping in from a Thursday hop and would love for you to stop by. Have a great day!

    Hello, your box is indeed too pretty to toss and the Liptons teabag took me right back to my childhood, now eons ago, and happy memories of Saturday shopping with my mother at the Home and Colonial and Liptons – so thanks for that. Have a good week. Elizabeth x #96

  42. Kezzy says:

    I would agree that box is way too beautiful to throw out and love your idea of keeping momentos in it, those cards are beautiful, did you make them or recieve them? Xx

  43. Julia Dunnit says:

    Oh very pretty Ramona – I would get in a state over what to file things under and it would all go to pot! I realise that's totally not you!!

  44. The Paper Princess says:

    Hi Kezzy,

    A few of the cards in the box, like the Ladies Spring Tea Party mementos, are things that others made that were too pretty to toss and hold some sentimental value for me, but most of the items, like the card, are items I've made and are just saving for the right moment to send!

    🙂

  45. The Paper Princess says:

    Hi Julia,

    You'd be surprised at how particular I can get over labeling things just right! If you peek into the box, you will notice there are blue labels inside. Those are actually cut up post it notes – I wasn't sure if I wanted the categories to be permanent when I set up the box, so I used post it notes instead of the label maker in case I wanted to change things around!
