Hand painted keepsake box with top and side scenes


Introducing my Custom Painted, One of a Kind Keepsake Boxes!

We all collect treasures, small objects that trigger memories of places, events and times that we don't ever want to forget. In my house, these treasures might be fragments of fossils, polished rocks, small sparkly things, sea glass, coins from far off lands...little pieces of wonder. Treasures this special deserve an equally special resting place, one that will become a treasured memento in its own right.

I will tailor your keepsake box to specifically reflect what is special and meaningful to you or your child. Imagine a hand painted engagement box, to collect small mementos that chart the journey to your big day. Or a special box painted with scenes from a beloved vacation, filled with the ticket stubs, sea shells, and other bits and pieces that will take you right back to that moment. Each box is an original design, hand painted in minute detail.

In the pictures you will see examples of someone else's story: in one, it's tailored to a soccer-playing, pearl-wearing young lady (clearly a Renaissance girl), and in the other, to a young boy whose adorably naughty dog chews up everything he finds. For YOUR box, we will start by having a conversation about what elements and details are special to you. I will then create three scenes with which to tell your story--one on the top, two on both short sides--to reflect those details. Personalization is always included--a name or short phrase can be painted across the front of the box, in whatever style best suits your unique piece. I use all non toxic acrylic paints and sealers.

The boxes themselves are beautifully made by another Etsy artisan, Designcraft Industries (I encourage you to visit their shop), out of solid hardwood in a variety of sizes. Shown is the cigar box style, dimensions 12" x 8" x 3", but many other sizes are available! Just ask!
