Wonder What's In That One!

I have several weaknesses but the one to which I succumb most often is 'boxes'!

Little ones, big ones...

Cardboard, wood or wire.

Open or closed.

This is the only organization within my studio - each box has a purpose into which I stuff 'stuff'. 

Not knowing exactly what is in any one box at a time gives me hours in which to paw through each and every treasure that I have saved.  What would I do without my boxes?

"Some of the most wonderful people are the ones who don't fit into boxes." - Tori Amos


  1. I have lots of boxes too - although not enough. I think there are never enough boxes!

  2. I like boxes as well, its amazing what treasures you sometimes find in them, things you had forgotten about years before. I am also fond of cabinets full of small drawers. What better place can there be to treasure away pebbles, sea glass, feathers, bark, lichen and so much more. I think I may be a hoarder but you never know when you are going to need something!

  3. I love your boxes and confess to a weakness for them as well. I wish I remembered what was contained in each box, but labelling them would be just wrong for a creative type like myself. I'm happy to go searching and poking about until I discover some gem that I had forgotten. Life in boxes is an experience!!

  4. Oh gosh, me too! I can't bring myself to throw away a "good box" LOL!! I have quite a collection as well, but somehow, I seem to be able to remember the general contents of them all. What's really bad is that I have so many empty boxes!! I do have plans for them though.......one day :))

  5. I also confess to loving boxes, and have been given many as gifts over the years. They are my prettiest!

  6. Hi Debbie
    I love little 'bureaus' with small drawers in which to tuck things. Too fun!

  7. I'm with Debbie too!! Boxes within boxes, with treasures tucked away inside...

  8. Well, it looks like lots of creative people collect boxes!! I hate to tell you how many hat boxes I have in our bedroom...storing...yes, hats, but also things that other people store in their drawers. My "room" is organized by boxes, but most of them are plastic because I stand in the middle of the room and turn a circle until I spot what I am looking for. But I also have cigar boxes, cheese boxes and whatever else has caught my fancy.

    I really like your WIRE boxes!
