A beautiful cup cake box with a surprise!

Today I bought a wooden box with a cup cake design on the front… but there is a surprise.

It holds keys!

Since I was very young, I longed for a key of my own, keys meant you were an adult.

But now I've got to an age where I do have keys of my own, they are the bain of my life!!! Car keys, house keys, shed keys, office keys, spare keys, I have keys coming out of my ears!

So imagine my delight when I saw this little beautie in Candle and Blue in St Johns Street, Bury St Edmunds (which incidently is currently one of my favourite shops in Bury and will probably feature somewhat heavily until my addiction fades). I no longer have to spend an hour looking for the pesky car keys which are often eventually found in the most obvious places… like my fridge.

Candle and Blue also do mail order, you can visit their site at

Total spent today: £14

That is a beautiful box and I love the polka dot pots. I am a huge fan of polka dots and stripes as you can probably see.

thanks Jane, me too! as you'll see in my latest post, even though I hadn't even realised it, I am addicted to all things dotty!
