Boxes!

I'm fixed on boxes, crates and trunks...it's strange because I'm not a tidy person, but I'm fascinated by small containers...

















...here there are some of them I use for LC's storage...

















...I keep inside the materials I use for my creations...ribbons, laces, buttons, brushes, wires, scissors...

















...I repainted, stenciled or covered them with paper I printed in b&w toile de Jouy...now everything is tidy...in few days...a mess again!

Ciao, Vale...I love boxes, too! I can't resist when I find a new one, especially if they have an old patina or unusual design to them...and they are great for storing other little treasures. I like your toile-covered box...the only thing about storing stuff in boxes...trying to remember what is in them!

Greetings Valentina!

You have done a wonderful job repurposing your boxes. Like Stalla and you I LOVE boxes from the very tiny to the large trunks. My family and all my friends know this and are always giving me little worn boxes that I love to mend and give new life to!!!

Silvia ha detto...

Ciao Vale! Io invece terrei anche le scatole vuote... in soffitta sono piena, penso sempre che un giorno ci troverò qualcosa da infilarci!!!
Le tue sono una favola, le mie sono con i soliti cuori, nastri, pizzi, fiori, e ... orsi!
Le tue sento che non mi stancano proprio!
Buon week end,
Silvia

........some day.....you will have to learn med how to stencil on fabric. In only 20 days, I am off work, and my new life begins!
Today I have bought 12 kilo fabric, linnen, cotton...wool...
I am SO excited, just cant wait!

But these days........I`m about to turn mad, all the work I have to do so I can leave and make sure the next woman in my chair gets a nice flying start....

Love from Tone, - puh...!

Sarai anche un tantino giù di batteria ma la tua creatività e la produzione danno sempre e costantemente splendidi
risultati!
Questi bauletti sono deliziosi...

Ti abbraccio!
