The weekly challenge asks us to share something tiny. If you’re viewing this on a phone, you won’t make out the messages on this keepsake box – blessings, exhortations and affirmations – so I’m writing them out for you:
Peace · Joy · Lucky · Contentment · Devotion · Prosperity · Happy · Laugh · Tranquility · Fun
Picked out in beads on a keepsake box at the Attic Gallery, Vicksburg, MS
Every city should have an Attic Gallery – it’s our communal loss that so many of them don’t. You can travel for miles before you’ll find anything that truly compares. This long established, family owned gallery specialises in southern contemporary art and fine crafts. Their reputation and instinct for seeking out regional talent has helped them gather a definitive collection of work.
Even if you don’t like to decorate your own walls, shelves and surfaces with unique decorative pieces, it’s the perfect place to look for gifts for friends and relatives who do.
All are warmly welcomed to this space where outsider art is definitely in. If you get the opportunity to visit, you’ll wind your way up an art-filled staircase and into a packed gallery above to explore the art, crafts, contemporary design on display. You’ll find the pure, the pointed and the whimsical at a good range of prices.
Expect to see artists and other creatives browsing for treasure or just hanging out in an oasis of colour and inspiration.

So pretty ♥
It’s easy to imagine how much care has gone into making it.
I LOVE this. It’s a bead mosaic with a message. A beautiful thing to see and read. THANK YOU.
My pleasure – it’s the kind of thing you want to share.
Lovely post. Thank you.
The words made me remember one of the traditional Irish blessings:
‘May the sun shine warm on your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields…’
very creative and lovely!
It appeals to the bower bird in us.
That is so lovely. Now if they could make them out of jelly beans…
It does have a jelly beanish character – the sweet ones, not the sours!
Beautiful work with a great message.
I’m glad you like it.
Reblogged this on Watercolor, Egg Tempera & Oil: Painting Life and Myth and commented:
I love this box and the writing that goes with it. Yes, an attic gallery. Nice.
Great blog, I can just imagine the gallery, it sounds and no doubt looks fantastic. Sally
The owner, Lesley Silver, is an artist and it shows.
Thanks for both images: the keepsake box and the attic gallery. I bet the gallery keeps the eye as busy as does the keepsake box.
You’re right. It’s the kind of place where you can’t possibly take everything in – you leave making a mental note to come back soon and explore for longer.
Beautiful work…….Love the message 😊❤️
