have hope....

Hope is like a light flickering within you - though at times it shines more brightly. I thought it was apt to surround the words in this tiny box with the tiniest sequins and beads to shine and catch the light.
I like the way the little boxes look together. A collection of tiny tokens, to be called upon in times of need, slipped into a pocket, closing fingers around them, a comfort.

tiny token

This tiny and perfect little box was given to me by a friend. You can see how small it is next to the cotton reel. Once the home of a treasured ring, now it's a tiny stitched reminder to be mindful, if only for a moment, something I think we all need to be reminded of from time to time.
