3 Beauties



I'm always on the look out for boxes, i just cant get enough of them. and somehow i always find good bargains when we're in the UK. there's just plenty to spoil myself silly! i found these 3 at a shop in Coventry. as soon as i spotted them, in my heart, i knew i just had to have them! but my head was telling me that i've spent too much already, i've exceeded my shopping quota. eventhough they were a bargain! and then i've started asking myself, whether i really NEED them. so i just stood there, infront of the shelves, with 2 voices in my head - get them, or give them a miss (who knows, there'll be more elsewhere when i can afford them).




After a good 15 mins staring at them, i then came to my senses. i decided to bid them farewell and leave the 3 beauties behind. little that i know my brother in law Redza was staring at me and the boxes, and as soon as i walked away, he then took them off the shelves, with the intention of getting them for me. before he even reached half way, my mum saw the boxes and took them from him and went and paid. got back to my my sister Fifi's house, mum handed me those boxes - "something for adek", she said.



If only i can give them more than what they've given me. if only they know how much they're appreciated and loved, if only i can make all their wish(s) come true... i know they are just boxes, but its something that i really love, and somehow they just know the things that will make me smile through the whole month! thankful, grateful, as always.

So, there it is, my 3 beauties, on my new craft table my dear husband Hardy made me on our 2nd anniversary. such beautiful colours, such simple boxes, such thoughtful people, such a joy to be having them on my new desk!!!!
