childhood whimsy

i remember meeting kiki and lala for the very first time...



my parents bought me a "little twin stars" tin box... that i still own, up to now.  the tin box is a little beat up, but i can't help but love it to pieces.  i just can't find it in my heart to throw it away.




it was with me back in the day, when used to live in the philippines.  that being said, it has a very sentimental value to me.  isn't it amazing how a piece of item, a certain scent, or an image can transport you back to your childhood?  i used to place all of my most cherished items in that box - photos, stickers, stationery, and my favorite pens, pencils, and erasers (the ones that have fruity scents to them, did you own one of those?).  i use it now to store some of my jewelry, so in a way, it still holds some of my precious items.



what item makes you sit, and reminisce about your childhood?

happy friday!
xo, carla
