A wooden box for me

Phil regularly comes home from work with a little gift of some sort - chocolate, flowers, earrings...
But yesterday's gift would have to be my favourite: 
 An old wooden 'suitcase' and some old tools...
 I have so many nice spots for this box to go, but for now we'll enjoy it in the lounge...
 
Oh, and my newest quilt is coming along famously. I wish I could show it to you, but this one will have to wait till after it has been exhibited.

Hi Ruth don't you just the character of old cases and boxes . I always imagine what all those lovely scratches and dents came from. John still has the case/ box which hs cloths etc came when they migrated . his box was number 12 . That will be 50 years ago . It holds all my photo album now .(well not all) . Take care and keep enjoying what you do , I love the updates.
Love a Johanna

Wow, that's a special box, then, Aunty Joh!

Bronya, you have a gift for saying (in a nice way) the things that the rest of us only dare to think :)

Colin, we found those prints in Amsterdam five years ago. So happy to finally have them on display!
