WHY DO I COLLECT?

Why do I collect? That's easy... because it's so much fun! Ever since I can remember I have been going to flea markets, antique shops, yard sales, you name it. Wherever I could find some sort of interesting treasure or cool piece of junk! I love driving around in search of new places or revisiting my favorite spots. I come from a family of collectors and have lived amongst antiques and collectibles my whole life. I have a passion for decorating especially with things that I find in my travels or even things found in the trash... which by the way can be some of the best stuff! But for those who share the same passion, I don't have to tell you... you all know what fun it is and how addicting it can be! Here I will share my collections, interesting finds, decorating tips, photos, projects, friends collections and thoughts and whatever else I may find along the way.

VINTAGE TOOL & TACKLE BOXES

I was reading one of my favorite blogs today 
Welcome to Deluxeville, which inspired me 
to post some of my vintage tool and tackle boxes.

I love using these old rusty boxes in the garden, 
for storage, in my studio and on my desk!

Check out how Mary Deluxe uses her vintage tool boxes.
So pretty with flowers on her table... She's got great taste!

  1. That's great! I particularly love the flower pot idea! I have an old metal tacklebox that I keep my jewelry in. When I was in art school I used an old tacklebox to carry my art supplies in.

  2. I love your tool boxes! I have a couple of the green ones in my craft area. I'm heading over to visit your friend to see how she uses hers.
