Pretty Storage
At my favorite antiques shoppe, I spotted this old wooden pop bottle case that had been painted, and antiqued. I *visited* it three times before I bought it!!


But I knew it would be perfect for hanging on my studio wall, to display my spools of laces and crocheted trims, within easy reach of my *creating table*.

I am always on the lookout for pretty ways to store things, such as this vintage planter for holding my tags......
My studio is still a work in progress, but I'm anxious to show it to you!! Hopefully soon!! :)
Thanks for visiting!!

Morning Becca! It's early but I have wallpapering to do today! I love your pop storage, looks so pretty with the lace spools; tags are gorgeous too! I can tell your studio is going to look like its out of the book "Where Women Create".(have you seen that one?) I'm glad you picked up the case before your 4th visit found it gone!lol The vinyl letters are really easy to apply; I picked them up 1/2 off at Kohls (I wouldn't pay the $21 regular price though!!) Have a great day - Jeannette

Ah, it's so beautiful with the rose applique you added to the side. It makes it so feminine and I just love all of the trimmings you store in it. Just beautiful! I like your blog. :)

Oh Man! Your "lace and trim" cubby cabinet is so perfect!
I've been loking for something similar forever.
I think I'll have to break down and make one myself.

Oh I love the wooden soda pop case that you turned into a wall caddy for your lace and trim. I have something like that in my attic. I didn't know what to do with it. I could use it for my trims and extras for my pin cushions.

This is the first time I have visited your blog and I love it. hugs, Ellen
