Seven Year Itch ... #BarAThon

I am taking part in the Blog-A-Rhythm Bar-a-thon challenge. The theme can be anything that requires grit and endurance, but not necessarily fitness related. And there are daily prompts. 

So my theme is simple, it's a blogging marathon about things to do with me in pictures, starting at one and ending at seven. 

Today's prompt is Seven Year Itch


I love little trinket boxes. This is another one of my indulgences. I just can't resist a trinket box.

Here are seven boxes from my collection. Most of them are papier mache and from India. I love shopping in India as you can find so many beautiful boxes to buy. 

There was a time when I was buying boxes regularly or being given one for a birthday or Christmas.

I think the last time I bought some boxes was in early 2011 on my last visit to India 

It's been seven years now and I think it's time for some buying. My fingers are itching to pick up a box or two. 

What are your fingers itching to do? Share in the comments below.

Check out some other Day 7 posts for the BarAThon.

  1. Well Suzy, My sister is very fond of Trinket boxes and my daughter also has some. That is a marvelous array of trinket boxes you have displayed. They look really well designed. And great way of using the prompt factually.

    My last Barathnon post 2018

  2. Gosh! I love trinket boxes too and have them in all shapes , sizes and materials . Today my fingers are itching to make a gooey chocolate cake .... I may just too !

  3. What a beautiful collection! My late mother used to be very fond of trinket boxes. Your post reminded me of her.

  4. You have such a lovely collection of trinkets and small little things! I have a few papier mache boxes like these too!
    Today, my fingers are itching to do some online shopping and buy some Kindle books too :D

  5. Wow what a lovely collection Suzy. I am from Jammu & Kashmir state of India and the paper machie is something we grew up seeing as a commonplace item and none of us would give it a second look.

    Now as a grown up, I have come to cherish them and regret not taking care of the whole plethora of boxes we used to have as children.

  6. These little boxes are lovely. I've collected a few little boxes over the years too. My fingers are itching to get back to some crafting. Have a lovely weekend and thank you for stopping by my blog this week.
