Just one little careful study of sun on the bench and flowers, from anothers’ garden. My own garden bench should be so well landscaped. Use it to hold seed packets, or your own collection of heritage seeds, gloves and small tools, or small books and notes to have handy when planning next year’s garden so you can look at the summery sun-splashed bench, roses and larkspur when it’s snowing outside. It’s perfect as the box to hold a gift, or as the gift itself.
This box has my painting “The Perfect Place” on the top, painted with deep forest green and sides embellished with a cutout of the flowers from the painting. Box measures 11″ x 9″ x 5″ high.

About the keepsakes
Use for storage for small items, photos or special keepsakes, or use as gift boxes.
I choose a variety of papier-mâché boxes from the craft store, envisioning the art I’ll print and decoupage to it and the colors I’ll paint it, and spend a few days creating and embellishing, under feline supervision, of course.
I use soy-based acrylic paints and print my artwork on acid-free matte-finish paper with archival waterproof inks and adhere the print to the box. Box insides are unfinished.
The boxes are handmade in their country of origin and may vary slightly in size and shape or have slight imperfections, but each one is an original and I often make a particular design only once.
