I have a love for many old things, but lately I am really drawn to old wood boxes.
You know they are such a simple but useful object.
The more worn and used they are, the better as far as I'm concerned.
I like a less cluttered and simpler primitive style.
These old wood boxes seem to work nicely for this.
In keeping with my love for old wooden things, I was able to find these two lovely wood firkins at a local antique shop. The larger one has a wonderful patina. Sadly, there was no cover with it but I love it just the same. The smaller one has the metal bands and is not really a true firkin (probably considered a cookie jar) but I plan on giving it a nice prim paint job to make it blend better with the other.
Another small decor change was this. I had a snowman next to my box on the counter and it was time for him to go. I found this sweet prim angel at a local gift shop. Her little tag reads 'faith' and she makes me smile each time I walk past her. May 'Faith' smile on you as well.
Until next time ~ Suzanne
