I learned how to make this sweet little hexagonal box from Judy Walker in a Bead & Button Show class. My mom and my aunt took the class, too. My mom gave me her box because I liked it so much. I don't have a photo handy of that one. One day I'll post about things she's made. My aunt went on to make a much larger box with flowers on each panel. I've tried to convince her to give it to me, but no luck so far. I'll take a picture the next time I'm at her house and post it. The hexagonal box below has forget-me-nots in it - that's how small it is! I think it stands about an inch or 1.5 inches tall with the lid on.
One of the downsides to moving is that I miss my old flower garden. Right now we have some grass in the backyard, but that's it. I don't have anywhere to put my reading fairy.
