Ekaruna - - Contents -

For all you read­ers that love a good ad­ven­ture and con­sider your­selves to be globe-trot­ters, wouldn’t you love a way to pre­serve all the mem­o­ries you made? That time you took surf lessons on a beach in Hawaii and fell off the board more times than you can count. That time you hiked up to the Hol­ly­wood sign in Los An­ge­les and had the whole world at your feet. Those are times that you will trea­sure for­ever, mem­o­ries that can­not be re-cre­ated.

Well dear read­ers, we have an easy and charm­ing way for you keep those mo­ments alive right in your home. In­tro­duc­ing the travel shadow box, a unique and mod­ern take on scrap­book­ing and col­lage mak­ing. The shadow box goes fur­ther than a pic­ture frame by hav­ing more space be­tween the glass front and the linen-cov­ered hard­board; this al­lows for the in­clu­sion of three­d­i­men­sional ob­jects, in ad­di­tion to pho­to­graphs, ticket stubs, and other me­men­tos that can be pinned. This par­tic­u­lar shadow box has a black iron tree that can hold your pic­tures in place. The frame is com­posed of mango wood with a sleek black fin­ish, giv­ing off a rus­tic, earthy vibe. But, al­most any fur­ni­ture store can sup­ply you with a shadow box de­sign that you can cus­tomise to your lik­ing.

A few ideas we have for you are to be cre­ative when it comes to ac­ces­soris­ing your shadow box - don’t hold back. Write a hu­mor­ous say­ing on the glass that de­fines the trip and takes you back to this won­der­ful time in your life. Hang a string of colour­ful beads or lights around the perime­ter of the frame to breathe life to your mem­o­ries and your walls. Your best of times are wait­ing to be framed and eter­nalised. Cheers to the travel shadow box.
