God never loved me in so sweet a way before;

'Tis He alone who can such blessings send;

And when His love would new expression find

He brought thee to me and He said, "Behold, a friend."

I wanted to show you the most wonderful little boxes that I found a couple of years ago when Cindy, Sharon and I went on an adventure together to the World's Longest Yard Sale!! I still have a lot of the things I found as I couldn't bear to part with them.

These two tiny boxes are the sweetest things. They are only about 3" cubes with little tops to them. I purchased them to make artwork out of them but I just can't!! Do you have things like that? You bought them fully intending on using them for artwork or to resell and they just can't leave your hands ~

OH and remember the sweet mail love from Christina yesterday?? Well, I'm such a goob and didn't realize
she has a blog, Rustic Tarts!!! She and Marion are wonderful artists in Australia. They haven't been blogging long so I'd just love for you to pay them a visit to welcome the to the sweet Land of Blog. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness, Christina ~

I hope you have a wonderful Sunday sweet friends,

xxoo, Dawn

Dawn, these boxes are SO unique. I agree. I think they're perfect just as they are. Putting them in a setting with other used and loved items, maybe with them open and holding something equally as precious, they'd make a wonderful display. And you're good at that!

Maybe bits of lace or a necklace gently falling over the sides...pieces of ephemera...bird's eggs! What a perfect nesting place for a tiny nest - your trademark!

Those boxes are so wonderful as they are that I think your instincts are right on. Enjoy them unretouched as they say.

I'm sending you a fun little email soon with a photo attached. Hope that you like it!

Oh yes, the boxes and cupboards filled with treasure to sweet to part with...we are sick in the head...but are having a great time of it.

Those are the sweetest little boxes and I'm sure I couldn't part with them either. After reading the message...seems to me they may have been jeweler boxes in a time past. Oh so personal! Thanks for sharing.

Those little boxes are sweet and I wouldn't alter them either! Too cute as is! I found their blog yesterday from the comment to your post! Sneaky, huh?

I love those boxes. Especially since they came from Boston. :) I don't think I could touch them either.
Edinboro Street is actually in the section known as Chinatown. I wonder what #17 is now?

You have such an eye for yummy vintage goodness. I love those boxes, too. They look just like you.

Your boxes are lovely, I love the weathered golden yellow, and the simplicity of them. Thanks for sharing! Roxanne
