special treasure...

Did I ever show you this sweet gift from my talented friend Patti of Pandora's Box...
She made it from an old wooden cigar box...
She shabbied the outside...
as well as the inside...
She knows just what I like!!


I use it in my studio to hold some letter packets that my friend Sandi inspired me to make...

I love having special treasures like this in my studio ~ it is a daily reminder of the best part about blogging ~ making new friends!
Thanks again Patti!!

I am joining Kathleen at Faded Charm as she begins her next 100 White Wednesday posts!
Oh the inspiration that awaits!!

What a wonderful and thoughtful gift. I just love boxes and this one is so pretty. It reminds me that I have a drawer full of old cigar boxes that I thought I would have time to make pretty. Aah someday maybe:)
