When you are sitting idle on a couch, relaxing, so many thoughts travel through the mind. Sometimes in those lovely moments, you realize how much you have grown and matured. You realize the importance of companionship, of love, of fights, of places traveled, of those laughs you had and all the blessings you have.
Birthdays are the days i usually introspect these thoughts and thank god for everything i have in my life and how lucky i have been. This year i thought this through on my anniversary as well. I have been married for 5 years now and it seems only yesterday when we started to breathe as a couple. 5 years is not a very long time, but then its significantly long enough time to say, ' have we really spent such a long time together?' :) :)
I made a really special gift for my husband on our 5th anniversary yesterday.
This is how the box looks from outside -
The box opens up from front and shows 5 cute little bottles. I bought a box of glass-beads packaged in them, those beads were used way back but these empty bottles remained which are now put to good use!
Some views from inside -
Each bottle has a message on the bottom and some visual details inside. There's chunky glitter on top as well.. Messages i wrote are - 'You hold the key to my heart', 'You are my sunshine', 'You are my lucky star', 'You are my moonlight', 'You are my money bank'.
Details of the charms inside bottles -
Details of work done on the outside -
