Several years ago I received this wonderful 'Spirit of the Wheel' set of cards created by Linda Ewashina and Jody Bergsma (whose watercolours I absolutely love) and have been looking for a nice way to keep them. Last year a friend gifted me with this beautiful little cigar box which I initially painted and filled with stones but I found I rarely ever opened it. Suddenly, this weekend I realized how it would be the perfect box for my cards, a favorite stone (Apache's tear) and crystal, one of the feathers I've gathered on walks, a small bundle of sage (another lovely gift) and a word-of-the-year necklace from a couple of years ago (fearless, still need the reminder to walk bravely). Now that I've removed the center of the box it is the perfect little cabinet of curiosities for me. I may yet decorate the inside but for now this is perfect.
