I Never Met A Tool Box I Didn't Like



I love vintage tool boxes.  Every time I see one when I am at an 
antique shop, a yard sale or a thrift shop, I am instantly drawn to it.




The more worn out they are, the better I like them.




But I don't use them for tools.
See what I mean?

Bentley ~ your momma inherited your grandpa John's tool box.
I think I might actually use it for tools.  Novel idea right?

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  2. Love, Love, Love toolboxes and I don't use them for tools either. I have a favourite one that I use for seed packets, my little garden tools and my garden gloves. Love it

  3. I see what you mean and you have spurred me to play with mine. I also look at them in antique stores but prefer to find them where people have no clue what they have:} Yours are gorgeous.

  4. Thanks for the inspiration! I think I'll start looking for one - with a great patina!

  5. The tool boxes are fabulous. I love the baskets and vintage silverware as well.

  6. I feel the same way!

    I have one that my grandfather, who passed when my dad was a boy, had made. I have just a couple things of his and this is the one I cherish most. It is on my desk in my office and keeps my desk tools and supplies orderly.

    Love this post, Susan!

  8. I think there are very few women(if any) that would put tools in their vintage toolbox...I love them too

  9. I am the same way. However I'm more drawn to the metal versions. I have a growing collection of them but not a single wood version. I may have to change that now that I've seen a couple of yours. They are beautiful.

  11. Oh, I love them too. It seems like they are getting harder to find, but it is seldom that I pass one up when I come across them. I'm with you. The more rustic the better.

  14. If it's a box I love it! Tool, tackle, etc. Love how you've creatively used both. Can't wait to see the inherited one. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
