Since I'll see Emme in person in December, I figured I'd give it to her then. In the meantime, I could use it as a bead storage box. Seemed like a clever plan.
The lunchbox isn't as big as the one I had as a kid. I had a Little House on the Prairie lunchbox, with a matching thermos. I carried it back and forth through at least three grades of school. Laura, Mary, Ma and Pa were my constant lunchtime companions. How about you; do you remember who was on your lunchbox?
It may be smaller than the old style lunch boxes, but it holds a ton. This thing is like the Tardis or a bag of holding (yep, my geeky antecedents are leaking out)! It's incredible how much it holds! Just look:
|A peak inside, but wait, it gets better....|
All of that was packed inside the lunchbox - including my normal travel bead box. It's a full bead studio on the go! I fear that Emme may not get her lunchbox after all. Or maybe I'll have to go out and buy her her own. I think this one's taken.
That little box holds a lot of stuff.ReplyDelete
Wow, my inner child is so jealous, Karen. My sister and I were mostly brown bag kids. I would have gone for a LHOTP box, my sister... probably Barbie!ReplyDelete
My Mom was way ahead if the time in the whole "reuse/recycle" thing. So we had lunch boxes through grade school. And woe betide us if I or either of my siblings forgot their lunchbox at school.Delete
It's funny how excited I was to graduate to 'grown up' paper bags in Jr. High.
I received a Hello Kitty lunchbox for my birthday last year and promptly declared it my bead travel box. It works great. I take bead projects with me to work and when I visit my mom. I can pack everything I need and not worry about crushing my project like I do when I cram bags into my tote. I love it!ReplyDelete
My childhood lunchbox was The Beatles. It was light blue and had the heads of the Fab Four painted on it. I wish I still had it. It was awesome!
A Beatles lunchbox - how fun!Delete
I bet your Hello Kitty lunchbox/bead carrier is a real conversation starter. :) I love how lightweight yet durable it seems.
How awesome my inner child is working overtime with seeing this!ReplyDelete
I LOVE this! And your mention of tardis made me once again thankful for DVR -- I didn't have to choose between the premier of Dr. Who and the University of Alabama game tonight. Geeky beaders, unite!ReplyDelete
The lunch box makes a great travel bead box. Thanks for sharing the idea. Are you sure you are going to want to give this one to your niece?
