What Do I Collect? Boxes



On the 15th of each month Yvette of The Charm House hosts a Tour of Collections called, What I Collect.
In her latest post Yvette introduces her collection of boxes and shelves. This reminded me that I have a bunch of different boxes in which I store various small items. Here are a few that are right in my study.
On my desk, next to the computer, is a light green box which holds ephemera waiting to be added to my nativity collection. Behind me is a matching three-drawer case that holds stationery items.


On top the television is a box which has a matching trash basket


On the top shelf of one bookshelf is a wooden box designed as two stacked books:

At the bottom of the bookshelf are two more boxes. One is an old wooden jewelry box that belonged to one of my brothers, now with a new wallpaper top

The other is a painted wood box made in Mexico, that now holds old keys.

On top of another bookcase is a mahogany box made by my father. He made one for each of his four daughters and two daughters-in-law.


What do you collect?


Do visit Yvette at The Charm House to join the Tour of Collections.

Carrie, these are so useful and so lovely. I suppose the drawers are my favorite. And the ones decorated with the wreath have such Napoleonean grandeur. But I think the most precious must be the one made by your dad. I so much love those people who take the time and the effort and above all the love to make something for a person they love themselves!
Sweet blessings to you, dear friend.

How neat! I'll have to remember this for next time. I have a few small collections, but I don't obsessively collect just all of any one thing.

Hi Carrie,
Your boxes are great! They're all so different too. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Very nice collection. Not only are they pretty, but they are functional too! That's the best kind of collection!
Enjoy your day!

Box collections always pose the question 'What's inside?' The box your father made is lovely, it must make it all the more special.
