Tools of the Spring Trade


A couple of weeks ago I found this adorable vintage tool box.  I don't
think that there is a vintage wood tool box that I don't like.  So, of course
this one just had to come home with me because I knew I could find so
many ways to use it.



I could not wait to fill it with bunnies and chicks and Easter eggs for a
spring centerpiece.





After Easter has passed, I think I will fill it with little pots of 
herbs and flowers and put it on the front porch.  



Or ... maybe the back porch.

and

This vintage tool box would work for some of your dog toys
too Bentley.  Your toys are scattered in every room of the house!
Now if I could just teach you to put them away.

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  15. Great tool box and I love the color, Susan! I have a red one that I found before Christmas but it is now in the garage undergoing a paint makeover. I just couldn't work with the red for the rest of the year.

  16. I always love seeing how you decorate your toolbox. By grouping everything together, each of your smaller things has a lot of impact. My favorite elements are the adorable pink bunnies! Susan, thanks for visiting my party and getting us in the mood for Easter.
