Beautiful Giveaway

Miss Sandy of Quill Cottage is having her first giveaway and boy, what a fantastic prize it is, inspired by The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Miss Sandy does such a good job of describing it here on her post that I'm going to borrow it :
The first item I have chosen for the goodie box is a tiny vintage wooden hand painted trinket box. This trinket box represents the book, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. This book is generally viewed as one of the most influential books in children's literature..

... In this book the main character, Mary, has been orphaned and sent to live with her Uncle, Lord Craven. At one point in the story Mary approaches Lord Craven and petitions, "Can I have a bit of earth?", to which Lord Craven replies, "A bit of earth? ". Mary explains, "To plant seeds in. To make things grow.".

... Inside this tiny trinket box I have placed a few pink silk and organza rose petals upon which rest some strange round black seeds....The enclosed seeds are from a flowering plant that is four generations old in my family.... They are called 4 O'clocks because that is the time of day they bloom.
Have fun entering this really interesting and inspiring giveaway
