Magickal Blessings Box

Way back when I lived in Woodenbong, on the far north border of New South Wales, I ordered a wooden box for my essential oils. It was well-made, heavy and great for my oils until we moved to North Cyprus. I pulled out the partitions and packed all my jewellery inside as it was so sturdy, and used a plastic box to hold my oils.

And then a couple of weeks ago I saw someone decorating woodwork and though it was time to cheer up my wooden box which was very plain indeed. I had been using it for jewellery but, as with the essential oils, my jewellery decamped to a plastic box.

I painted my box purple (what else????) but found a brush didn’t provide proper cover so used a sponge which really did the trick. Then I dabbed on some pink glittery paint blobs. I had just received in the post some sew-one patches to hide holes and stains on clothes I love and really can’t throw away, but missed putting away a white butterfly patch which one of my dogs chewed. I managed to salvage the remnants and they went on top of my box along with bits of jewellery I’ve collected over the years and various stick-on decorations.

The catch on the box has been decorated with a pendant by my artist friend, Tammy Vitale. I thought having something with “Live, Laugh, Love” on it, blessed the intent of my box and also re-affirmed for me the power of friendship with so many lovely people around the world.

So now I have a Magickal Blessings Box in which I put all sorts of odds and sods which have personal meanings for me, or remind me of grace in my life.

This is the top
And this is the front.
