My second unintentional collection of......

......boxes.


Now a couple of posts ago, I shared a little unintentional collection of tins with you and was quite pleased to hear you could understand my love affair with a tin! Then the lovely Rachel commented on facebook, if I had ever considered getting my designs printed onto boxes. I have.... but as with the tins, it's the quantities and storage that are currently stopping me from going forward.


But then it struck me just how many lovely boxes I have around my home and well maybe if I liked them so much, others might buy them too, so I may, when I have a moment, investigate further.


I must confess every room in the house has a box or two in it - even the bathroom (see above)


This little collection houses my small jewelry collection - yes I know there is a tin in the photo I forgot to share with you last time.


This bow is a favourite from IKEA - it was bought for Christmas.


Even Hubby has to have a lovely, flowery Cath Kidston box to house his cufflinks!



Sam has quite a few spotty boxes for all his bits and pieces



and Sophie has quite a collection in her room too - must be following in her mother's footsteps - such good taste!


My study is just as full of boxes, as it is tins - you can never have enough in my opinion......


........ but alas like the tins, they fade so badly in the direct sunshine.


This has to be my most used box - it's full of all the usable scraps of paper I get - would be lost without it!

Have a lovely weekend.

Love your boxes.
Boxes and baskets are the best thing
to hide ones stuff in.

What a lovely collection & I do like the one wrapped in your paper too. I like a good old cardboard box as well as pretty ones!

I love storage boxes too. Have you ever thought about licensing your designs to a box manufacturer? then you get royalties on what they sell plus you don't have the hassle of manufacturing or storage and distribution.
