My weird obsession.....

So I'm perusing etsy one night.....(strange I know)

Always looking for the old, the shabby, the know....the falling apart

And I spy with my little eye....THIS beauty! 

Covered inside and out with vintage wallpapers...stained and all.

And it's BIG, not like a regular cigar box size (which is what I was expecting).  This wasn't ever a cigar box, merely a wooden box that someone got crafty with...thank you whoever you are!

Yep, this one is "knock down whoever is in your way to get to it" cool! Luckily I didn't have to do that...thank you etsy!
Oh, and I won't even mention the price, since that's tacky, right?
I don't want you to cry....;).
Hope you're picking is good this careful out there!
