Tweaking My Toolbox For Christmas


My favorite toolbox has been tweaked for Christmas.  



Now it's filled with bits of fabric, a tiny rolling pin,
and an angel.




Cookie cutters, bits of ribbon and a vintage Santa candle.



Ready for things I need to help make this 
Christmas Merry and Bright!


I am joining ~
and

The squirrels have eaten all of the pumpkins that used to be on
the porch.  Now they are eating the pumpkins and the squash in
the flower boxes.  Bentley is really busy trying to keep them all 
in line.  He is like the maitre d'hotel of the Ash Tree Cottage
squirrel buffet!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  6. I kept expecting the squirrels here to eat all the pumpkins on our front porch. So far they have ignored them. Guess it doesn't much matter at this point. I might just throw them down into the woods and let the critters have a feast. ;-)

  15. Holiday Greetings Susan and Bentley, I love the tool box, but then I love all your decorations!
    That was a very thoughtful thing to do by leaving pumpkins for the squirrels-glad Bentley was such a gracious host.
    Have a great evening.

  26. Your little toolbox is the sweetest thing I've seen in a long time! At one time, I think I had about half a dozen of those boxes. One on the front porch, one on the back porch, and all throughout the house. You can stuff SO many cute things in them!
    Happy REDnesday,
    Carol
