Hi - Today for Me and My Space a day late I thought I would show you the inside of my Goodie Boxes :0) I have LOTS of different plastic boxes filled with all kinds of Embellishments. Many are from my Scrapbooking days, Lots of alphabets and such. While cleaning up my desk and a few drawers I kept coming across little bits of things. You know little boxes, packages and containers of those little things you want to keep close so you will remember to use them. Then they get buried and forgotten. Yep... that is what happened to lots of my things.
Well I kept piling them up and soon I had a pretty big pile. I went to sort things into those many many boxes and decided that I would just create two boxes that would sit on top of my desk, easy access and hopefully as I purchase or get new things they will go into these boxes and not buried. That is the plan today anyway, not that my plans always work out. :0)
So here is box one....
Box 2 -
I will say I don't know if it cuz they are new on my desk, or just that I have thought about things I have seen recently, but I have been digging in these two boxes and using a few things recently! YEA... I really need to use up some stash... sigh....
Now I thought I might also start showing you some of my other loves... Hubby and I collect all kinds of old stuff - I have been sucked into Vintage Blogs lately... and thought if you all wouldn't mind I might share some of my things as well...... If you don't like it... I'll stop :0)
So first off I thought I would share the back wall of my "new" kitchen. You might remember last year... just two weeks prior to my bosses and friends Heidi and Stuart from Stampavie were to come and then leave for CHA... Hubby started tearing apart my kitchen. We took out all the cabinets, put in new, new counter top (love that butcher block top from Ikea!) And a new tile back splash. We decided to not put upper cabinets on this one wall in my kitchen instead he built me these wonderful shelves to show off just a few of my collectibles. Oh.. Hubby finished the kitchen just with just over a day to spare before our guest arrived! LOL
A couple of my biggest loves is my Yellowware stoneware kitchen things. I have LOTS of this. I just put a few bowls out here. And then I adore vintage kitchen tin. I especially love Nesco's Garden Girl collection. Don't know why... just love that little gardening gal - she is so... so... so.... Leave it to Beaver Momish... LOL you know what I mean? Hair perfect, dressed perfect, out to do her gardening... Lets see what else is here... oh the birds are ones my FIL made years ago... we miss him. And having the birds all through out my house is a smile. I also have a few vintage repo toys - a few other pieces of pottery. And some older tin kitchen items. Really love that 1800's era kitchen tin. Just a bit pricey most of the time!
Well hope you enjoyed! Thanks for letting me share :0)
Have a great Thursday - see you tomorrow for Just Magnolia and Hanglar day!
