A CURB SIDE FIND

This little container is something that I found at the curb a few blocks from my house. I guess the lady had did some spring cleaning. I also found some tall candle holders and a new diaper bag that still had the tags on it. When I found the container I didn't know for sure what it was for, I guess to carry food. I've had it a long time just sitting in the garage. Then one day, while looking at it a light bulb came on, and I filled it with some of the old jewelery and things that I have been collecting forever. It wouldn't hold all the jewelery, but it holds quite a bit. And it doesn't take up too much space. Wish I could find a few more of these, they are very good storage containers.










Hope all of you have a blessed and creative day!
Smiles,
Pat

What a cool discovery! The first thing I thought of before reading on was...the trays that hold the little cups for the Lord's Supper at church.
But looks like it works really well for jewelry too.
The little glove tag, I got at the Rio Star Antique sale on the 21st in New Braunfels.
Cool and windy down here.

Amen Candy!! I was thinking the same thing...lol

Great find Pat! I once saw, sitting on the side of the road, a beautiful Queen Ann chair covered in ecru with tiny little roses all over. I quickly stopped my jumped out, popped the trunk and got ready to thrown in before speeding off. I knew I wouldn't be able to close the trunk but I can drive slow and this is a Queen Ann and It's On The Side Of The Road. Imagine my surprise when I bent down to pick it up and smelled the most awful urine smell EVER! I think a cat must have sprayed it...it was awful!

Wow! Wish I'd come across something by the curb like that! What a cool looking container and I love what you put in it.

Great finds.

T also think your new 'jewelry storage' is a communion tray.
Would have never thought of getting one, but they would make great storage and stack and not take up much room.
