Christmas Toolbox 2014

By now y'all know about my toolbox obsession.  I love to collect them 
and manage to decorate them for every holiday.  The minute I see an
empty toolbox my imagination runs wild!

Our gardener, Carlos and I started putting up outdoor lights yesterday and
we ran into all kinds of snags.  I thought I had plenty of lights for the
project but we ran out of lights.  Two circuit breakers clicked off.  Once
because we had too many lights strung and connected to one plug and 
another time because we used one of my Daddy's extension cords and
it fizzled.  It's always something.

We worked for two hours with another helper too.  Fortunately Carlos is
a very patient man, but very artistic too.  I knew he would do a great job
because he helped my neighbor put up lights too.   We were quite 
pleased with what we had accomplished, but then …

David came home from work and said "looks great so far, but we
need more lights."  So I'll be back at the store picking up more lights.
For those of you living in Texas ~ if there is a power outage ~ it might
be my fault ;-)

Bentley had fun yesterday.  When he wasn't following Carlos 
around, he was chasing squirrels.  He did so much squirrel 
chasing that he is doubling up on his naps today!

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley


  1. Someone I did blog work for gifted me an Etsy card, and I've been looking at tool boxes. Yours makes me really want one!

  2. I love this look…I am on the hunt for a long narrow box to do something similar with…how is it one can never find what they are searching for??

  3. These are so popular and easy to sell in my shop, I never pass one up at an auction. So versatile and I like what you did with your holiday styling.

  4. Aw, little Bentley! I can just see him scampering all around. Bless his little heart. I love your tool box and your poked some lovely things into it too. I know, it's always something. I'm sure your home will look so pretty!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  5. I love your C'mas box. I?m gonna pin it, so I can copy it, it's lovely on the pretty tartan chair too!
    Happy holidays,

  6. I love your toolboxes Susan, they always look so very pretty, and you offer lots of decorating ideas with so many lovely dishes and seasonal bits and bobs.
    Perfect !

  7. That looks great together Susan! I like tool boxes used as decor too! Thank you for joining HSH! Have a very Merry Christmas!


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
