Saving for a rainy day...

I don’t think I ever quite grasped the concept of saving for a rainy day. I was far too impatient to save my pocket money as a child, where as my brother somehow managed to.



I picked this little money box up from a Charity Shop for 50p. It charmed me instantly, I love carousels and merry go rounds, they are just so magical and pretty.



I have very fond memories of going to the seaside as a child and going on them, I would always try and find one of the horses called Alice, but if there wasn’t an Alice, I would then find the most special and beautiful name I could relate to in someway.



I took this photograph last summer in Brighton, and I really wish to go back there again this summer. So maybe my ‘rainy day’ could be Brighton, and all the money I save in this money box can go towards just that♥

  3. Thats a lovely money box, looks like the ones you get for christenings.

    I currently have about 4 money boxes in random spots around the house. I think one may have 50p in it ... and er, thats it! Fail!
