Now Open...
Keepsake Boxes At The Shoppe of Edward

Secrets. Treasures. Keepsakes. For all of us, these are such personal, valuable things. Where do we hide our secrets? Where is the place to put that small wondrous item that holds special meaning for us alone? A perfect pink shell picked up on a special seashore, that lock of golden hair, that first tooth, the little bit of blue from a wedding, the sweet note or the first love letter.
I have always been enamored of the keepsake box, the reliquary, the chinese box that only I knew the secret way to open. In the spirit of treasures and secrets, I have been making Keepsake Boxes for clients and friends for several years. I enjoy creating them so much that I am now making a few available through
The Shoppe at The House of Edward. Each one unique, these boxes feature vintage and antique items and are embellished with various glass beads, vintage flowers and German glass glitters.

There will be special Holiday Boxes each season,
with a few
Halloween Boxes available now,
each featuring a little too cute to be scary
Wee Good Witch
just waiting to hide
all the deepest darkest of secrets,
or maybe just some save-till-later candy.
Christmas Boxes should be available
starting around the first of

There will be beautiful Dog Boxes,
each featuring a silver-plated
frame to showcase a
favorite photo of a
favorite best friend.

and extra special Wedding Boxes.

Each Wedding Box features an antique wedding couple in china or bisque. No two boxes are alike, some are double tiered, some triple, with each tier opening to hide treasured wedding keepsakes. These special creations can also be custom ordered in individual colour palettes.
I have opened a shop at
Etsy to feature these Keepsake Boxes, along with the occasional antique treasure I may pick up on my journeys. The Halloween Boxes are up now, and the Wedding Boxes, Dog Frame boxes, and a few Baby Boxes will soon follow. I so enjoy creating these and will make every attempt to keep some in the store at all times. If there is something special you would like fashioned just for you, do send me an email and let me know.
Wander through the shoppe, and take a look. You never know, you may just have a secret keepsake in need of a hideaway.
And, each box comes with an autographed photo of Edward himself!
