June photo a day - Day 1, 2, 3

Thought I would join in the June photo a day so here are days 1, 2 and 3

Day 1 = B is for ... Boxes.

I love little trinket boxes and have a steadily growing collection.  Here is a picture of some of my boxes. The rose is my favourite. A lot of my boxes are made of papier mache from India.

Day 2 = A Moment

Winter 2011 it snowed so heavily in Wellington. It rarely snows - maybe on the hills but never in the city.
That year however, it snowed everywhere. It was magical, cold, but magical. The kids had so much fun. And here is a moment my son and I will remember forever ... building our little Frosty the Snowman.



Day 3 - On My Table

June 3 is celebrated as the Queen's Birthday in New Zealand. And 2013 being her 60th Anniversary of her Coronation, we decided to celebrate a royal high tea at work last Friday. And it was a yummy royal high tea. So here is my table at work ...

    Hugs!

    1. Thanks Vidya. Those are papier mache boxes from Cottage Industries and Kashmir Emporium in Mumbai. It was a really nice morning tea - I had to skip dinner I was so full.

  2. Lovely photos, all. Love your collection of boxes. The Mr. Frosty moment must carry such lovely memories :) And in the last picture I wonder if the table is groaning ;)

  5. Oh wow! Loved all three of them. Such cute boxes, a snow moment and an array of tea time snacks. Loved the way you arranged the sandwiches. :)

  7. Those boxes are beautiful, Suzy! Even I love the rose one!
    And building a certain Mr. Frosty has been a dream I've nurtured since childhood... hopefully, one day I'll get to be in a place where it's snowing, and will then make my dream come true! :P
    And that's a most mouth-watering spread on the table at your work place. I love high-teas like this!
