I Have Something to Show You

Yes. Two posts in one day.
Why?? I cannot wait till another day to show you
my newest treasures!
Can you see them there, next to the lamp??

These round boxes.....
Vintage collar and cuff boxes.

I was so excited when I found them.
I could hear something rattling around in this cuff box,
so I opened it before I bought it.
A couple of old spools. No big deal.

This collar box made no noise so I did not even
think to open it. So when I got it to the store, and
opened it up. Surprise!!!

Look what was inside.
Not too impressive? Wait till you see them....

(The White Wednesday post I had already written
will be postoned, cause I cannot wit till next week to show you
what I found.)

Interesting...can't wait to see more. The boxes are gorgeous.

I can see why you were excited to show us the collar and cuff boxes....they are so cool! And then to find collars in the box!! Looking forward to seeing them for WW.
Thanks for your very nice comment on your previous post about my repurposing efforts. You are much too kind! I've been somewhat in a rut lately. I did a little cleaning of my garage last night and came across some things I'd forgotten about...hopefully they will inspire me!
I love how you have utilized the drill bit box, it makes a fabulous display.
Have a wonderful week.

Love the boxes, but - ooo! The collars! Are you going to do something creative with them? I've got some and have absolutely no idea what to do with them. Can't wait to see what you do!

Hi Barb,
the boxes are beautiful and I guess they had the collars still in them?
Have a wonderful day,
