IKEA Memory Boxes

A little while ago I filled one of three IKEA memory boxes that I had bought a couple of years but left empty, with old wooden cotton reels, well, I have finally filled the other two …..

I didn’t know what to do with my scary spellbook box that I made for Halloween…. and then I had an “Ulrika” moment and put it in one of the boxes with a glittered spider, I am dead chuffed!

I also found, (when I was looking for something else), a bag of small pieces of driftwood that I have collected from beaches on various holidays.  The intention was to make a heart shaped wreath with them (one day) ….. but it seemed a pity to have them stuck away ….. so into the memory box they have gone, in the hope that seeing them each day will spur me into action.

It’s a bit eclectic, but it’s me! Now that I have filled these three boxes …. I think I may see if I can find another three ....... except that IKEA have stopped doing them ...... bum!

I LOVE it! We should all have more "me" hanging around our houses instead of stuff designed by someone else. Happy, happy holidays!!
