Pretty Little Boxes

I had to restrain myself when I was at the shop the other day. I’m usually pretty good about buying just what is needed. I try not to stray to far from the list. But,I am drawn like a magnet to pretty boxes. I just love them. There’s just something wonderful about putting something ordinary into something, well… extraordinary!

I managed to keep my money in my wallet and just ooh-ed and ahh-ed a bit. 

When I came home I started looking around and realized that I really do have a lot of  pretty little boxes….. everywhere. In just about every room and cupboard. I even keep my tea bags in one!

 There are some in the master bath closet
    Some velvet covered ones in our master clothes closet ( no you’re not seeing double) I have two of the same boxes. I actually have several duplicates throughout the house.
 There are some baskets too.

                                                        Some in the guest’s linen closet.

I  have a few baskets in the den closet holding greeting cards.

                                 My favorite boxes have a little ribbon on them, or a beach scene ( the beach always makes me think of time well spent).

As long as there is stuff, I’m sure I’ll need pretty boxes.
Do you have a lot of boxes, baskets or other containers that you like to keep things in? What draws you like a magnet when you go into the shops?

    very pretty boxes and nicely stacked. I'm not sure what calls me when I'm in a store….I guess paper since I have tons of it. Scrapbook paper, there's so many pretty prints, I have a closet full of paper.

    1. Katherines Corner

      my daughter is a scrapbooker too, She has piles of pretty paper. You could put some on a box and add some ribbon and taa daa!

  7. Debbie

    Yup! Everything looks better in a lovely box. I use them and seagrass baskets where I can.
    Love, love, love them!

    1. Katherines Corner

      I have some seagrass baskets in my art room. They are so strong.

  14. Desert Dreaming

    So pretty…I am a organizing freak, seriously…everytime I go to HomeGoods, or a shop that has beautiful storage, I have to buy a piece. I loves things organized, labeled and know exactly where something is at. But yours are just stunning.

    Thanks for such an adorable post.
