I noticed that a few other people (on other blogs) had taken the opportunity to post their items on a blog, so being a little copy cat I thought I’d follow suit, even if just to boost our post numbers!
I had to think a lot about what to show as most of my ‘special’ things are at home at my parents house. But I did manage to pick one thing that really meant something to me. My item was a jewellery box that my boyfriend brought back to Poland when he visited last summer. I was unable to go and as he knows how much I love travelling myself and collecting little mementos from trips he bought me this handcrafted jewellery box. For my birthday last year he also made me a few pieces of jewellery (one of his girl friends is a jewellery maker!) and he had wrote a little note to say that I now had somewhere to keep them.
I love the jewellery box and it means a lot to me as my boyfriend thought about getting me a gift he knew I would love rather than just bringing back something irrelevant to me or something with no meaning.
