Black Drawers










Paula and I found these black drawers 
at Madison Bouckville two years ago.
She made several charming and unique shadow boxes
 with her half of the take.

I intended (as usual) to do the same.
Instead I have just hoarded  kept mine.
I keep other things I hoard collect in them.
...and then I stack them.
I like them.

I wonder what I will find this year at MB?

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous Laura. I love and covet everything that you show us !! Living in the suburbs of London, we don't have as many places to buy such lovely things.
I can't wait to see what wonderful things you buy this time. XXXX

Diese Boxen sind einfach wundervoll - ich liebe altes Holz, dass seine Geschichte zeigt. Eine ganz tolle Idee, was man aus altem Holz so alles noch zaubern kann - die Idee werde ich mir merken.
Hab noch eine schöne Woche

they are great. I am getting in the "Halloween" mood. Looks like the thread and strawberry were once red. Loved that they turned this lovely color.
Talk to you later,
Hugs, Evi

We can always find practical & artistic uses for the things we hoard, can't we, Laura? I usually buy what I'm drawn to and then quickly find something to do with it, when I get it home, to keep hubby from doing away with it. ;)

Happy hoarding!
