My Music Box

Hello again my sweets :)

Last week my boyfriend gave me a surprise gift as he had been away for the weekend with his dad and saw this and thought of me (how cute :P) 

When we were in Indian last Easter we bought a wooden box with an engraved elephant on top, it was so pretty and its the one regrets I have because I didn't buy one for myself! Me being me I have then gone on about it for the last 18 months :P however now I have my own box and I have to say I think this one is better and I have fallen in love with it :)

It is a tradition Italian music box, the box itself does have some scraps and chips but I just think they add to the story behind it :) 




He bought it for me because I wanted a jewellery box and added extra it was a music box, however when he gave it to me I turn it over and found out the song it plays is 'Torna a Sorrento' :) he hadn't realised this but one of my favourite places in the world is Sorrento, me and my family have been twice and I can't wait to go back in the future at some point :)


I wanted to use the box and for it not just be for decoration, so I have made it into my earring box :) I am very safe with my jewellery and don't really mix it up so I think this will be a good way to building a collection and having it next to my bed means ill change them more often :) 



(My favourite earring of all time, I wear these most days)

I know this is a bit of a different post but I love when things are sentimental and have more meaning when you look into them :) I know this will be a box I keep forever :)

What's your most sentimental thing?

  1. How very sweet of him! It's not a very conventional gift as well, which I think makes it more thoughtful and memorable :) I would love to visit Sorrento one day as well.
