aqua and rust..

aren't you lovin' the aqua and rust?

It was love at first sight...

oh, I have had this for some time, just sitting in my garage...
so many options, what should I use it for?...a planter in the garden?
just as is on a shelf?
then the light bulb went off!!!
(as I was looking for my hammer, then my pliers)
why don't I use it for what it was intended for....duh!
to store my tools!

  1. TeeHee isn't it funny how we are so driven to create that sometimes we forget to use things the way they were meant to be used. Have a wonderful weekend!

    P S. Love the pink cottage!

  10. Okay.. I love it too! I have an old fishing tackle box in a similar finish and I use it for jewelry making supplies.

  11. Wonderful toolbox. I have a car (please don't judge) with those colors. We live in the country and it's not a driver. I've used it for color and photo inspiration. This is my first time visiting your blog. So glad I found you today.
