A sweet little collectible..............

Powder boxes and tins! I just can't resist the graphics on these beauties.....and the ones made of cardboard, well, it's just frustrating that things aren't made this well anymore. I admit I buy these lovlies for their "prettiness" but the fact that the boxes are so very thick! I think I might even store some buttons in these. Admittedly I don't pay much for them but they're such a beautiful part of our past.....

It's yet another crazy weather day here, sunny one minute, rain and hail the next...and cold too! I'm hanging out waiting for my bedskirt from Anthropologie to be delivered today...then I'll have to wrestle with my king-size bed to get it on there...yikes! Wish me luck - I have visions of the whole mattress falling on me :(
