Elliott chose purple for his one-color treasure box because of the blue salvia he plucked from the morning garden. But he had a hard time not choosing blue items too. Sometimes it's a hard call.

Of course my craft room held an abundance of that color of treasures to be included in my box. Elliott decided not to glue his items and so they are free to roam about in his box. Mine have been secured in a variety of ways. I'm pleased that the bell on the top jingles when you open it.
