Happy Memorial Day

I do hope you all have lovely plans! It's been overcast and cool the whole weekend here so it hasn't been conducive to being outdoors much at all.
Today, however, we're heading to our favorite nursery to pick out some flowers and perhaps doing some antiquing along the way.
We have our flag flying (but then we always do) and dd helped me put our bunting on our front fence....God bless all who help keep this great country safe so that we can do things like going to a nursery to pick out flowers.
Raise your flags high today and every day!

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!
