Put It In A Box!

The other day I was at Michael's Craft Store,
you can see the goodies I got over here,
and I bought this cool, beige photograph box.
You know, boxes like this:

I bought as a way to contain my crafting tidbits,
because I'm slowly collecting more and more things!
So exciting!
Anyway, I got to thinking a little while after that
and I remember my mother have these really old hat boxes
under her bed when I was a child.
I don't exactly remember what she had in them,
probably old jewelry that I couldn't play with.
But I was thinking about how beautiful they are.
I mean, take a look at some images I found:

There's just something about them,
maybe it's their history or their shape or
how they smell old,
but I just love them!
I want to buy them, collect them like vases or tea towels.
Use them as decoration or legitimate storage.
Beautiful, right?

What do you think of old hat boxes or photograph boxes?

  1. Old hat boxes are superbly cute! Especially if they are vintage! I will definitely encorporate some in my new bedroom! :-)
