Storing things in them

Treating like books and piling them up.

Using as gift wrap

I used to collect old tins when I was young – and my mom still has some of those old tins.  My favorite one was one an aunt gave me, it was old and still had the inedible chocolate in it when I received it!! I think it was war rations that had never been eaten.


One of my tins which I still have, holds my child’s baby hair.

I store tv gadgets in a box.  It keeps the place looking tidy and the boxes look so good.

  1. I find that I am bound to collect boxes. I get too many, thin them out, and end up buying more boxes on sale and in thrift stores! I like the first display shown of them on a tray.

    • Oh, and to answer your question, I have 3 favorite boxes. They are made by family members. One is a cedar box that Daddy made for Mama years ago. Another one is a hope chest that Daddy made for me for my first Christmas. The third one was made for me by two of my husband’s (then teenage) brothers for my first Christmas in their family. All are simply made, but mean a lot to me.
