like a box of smarties


While shopping in Tilba I found this gorgeous money box. Made by a fair trade organisation in Mexico, it is handcrafted from a coconut, then painted in these beautiful bright colours - it reminds me of a box of smarties! 
I'm sure the owner thought I was a crazy woman on a mission, I took it straight to the counter within 10 seconds of walking in the door! 
I do have to start decorating the nursery, so this will now be my new colour inspiration.

Wow, you never know what you may come across in a small country town! I wish the Colbo shop stocked such lovelies...
