Rusty Metal Box

There I go again. Snapping up the rusty metal box on the garage shelf at the estate sale.  Everyone else has passed it by.  I see it and my heart actually leaps.  It is rusty metal. It is the softest shade of green. It is perfect.

My collection of ribbons that I use for wrapping up my Etsy packages fit perfectly.
The ribbons have turned a rusty beaten metal fishing box into a delightful storage container for silky elegance.
Rust and metal and ribbon.  The perfect combination.  It is in my Etsy shop of course! here

That's me too!I love this one you that green. What a great idea to add ribbon as a package deal! I was at a sale on Saturday and zeroed in on one and before I picked it up the man cut the price in half! He was sorry there was no key and felt $.50 was too much!!!

I have such fond memories of boxes like that. I kept my art supplies in one when I went to college way back in the dark ages. Mine was red and I am pretty sure I stole it from my dad.
