Desperately seeking Tiffin..

I have wanted a tiffin box for quite a while now. Truth be told I love putting things in boxes. Seriously. The tupperware aisle at any given store gets me all abuzz. If I could I would have everything in boxes, (**rubs hands together manically**). My searches for the quintessential Tiffin box is due in part because I love to make my own lunch, and who wants to tote around a crusty old brown paper bag?!

At one point I almost caved and bought a bento box from Plastica instead:

But I am not entirely keen on putting my food, hot and whatnot, directly into plastic. So the hunt continued. I toyed with the idea of buying a good ole stainless steel tiffin box from Amazon:

But I just wasn’t ‘feeling’ it. Then this past week I saw a wonderful House Tour on Apartment Therapy. A home in Bangalore India, belonging to a gent named Karthik. And ‘lo and behold, I saw the Tiffin box of my dreams!

See it? Right there on the second shelf up and second box across. A lovely, vintage looking, cream coloured tiffin box. Can I locate one online? Not for the life of me!! I am going stir crazy…but have a call in to my friends from India to find out where I can pick up one for myself..let’s hope it all works out!
