I'm always excited when I find a new treasure-especially one with a really great story. I usually have a really hard time committing to buy things for my home but most of the things I do have, all typically have some sort of story to go along with them. For some reason that makes me feel like I am making a real investment - whether it's in the past or the future I'm not sure.
Today's find was this handmade toolbox from the 1940's. I love that someone took the time to make the whole thing...the dividers, handle, and latch... instead of just buying a toolbox. Sometimes I feel like I long for that sort of care and craft. It reminds me of the documentary Alone in the Wilderness - check it out on YouTube...this guy is impressive.
I can't wait to supply my new box with necessary provisions and see where it takes me.
