The Best Part of Vacation Is.............

Going antiquing and finding great things like this...

A lovely teal blue vintage wicker sewing box with a floral decal on the lid and also on the inside bottom.

Even though I don't sew (at least not yet anyways...), I love to use these vintage sewing boxes for storage as they are so pretty displayed on a shelf, or even just sitting on the floor.

I actually have several of these in my collection now, each in a different color, including a creamy white, a bubble gum pinkish color and one in yellow as well. I'll have to gather them all together for a group picture one day soon to show my complete collection.

This wasn't all that I found, but I'll wait to share the rest in a day or two.

I hope you all have been having a great weekend and that maybe you've found yourself a few new treasures too.

See you soon!!

Dear Shabby Kim,

I love your gorgeous sewing basket! Vintage things are so beautiful! I had not seen a blue one before. I have two pink ones that I love storing my sewing things in. You would love sewing! Too bad we don't live close, I could teach you how to sew! :) I look forward to seeing all of your collection and your other pretties! So glad you had fun.

Love and blessings,
Paula

Hi Kim,
Your sewing basket is lovely! It would be hard to use because I wouldn't want to cover the flower on the inside!
