BOXES & BOXES & MORE BOXES!

September 25, 2017

Toy boxes, pencil boxes, music boxes, tool boxes, cigar boxes, sewing boxes, candy boxes  . . . I love boxes!  But for many years, I didn't truly realize how much I loved them, how many I had shelved in my bookcases.  But my favorite box is a wooden Velveeta Cheese box that I've had FOREVER.  This box appears in my coming-of-age, YA-novel, HONEYSUCKLE HOLIDAY.  It holds the main character's -- Lucy's -- most prized possessions:  a brass skeleton key, a cracked doll's head, a heavy pink lead toy pig, a rusted pocket watch, and a red velvet toy clutch.  Lucy takes it with her everywhere she goes.  And everybody wants it!  Do you remember the treasures that Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird carried in her box?  What kind of boxes do you like?  And what treasures do you carry in your boxes?
