this looks sooo much better in person. silly me took it while the sun was behind the box making it look all washed out.

and what makes me love this all the more, i got the box for $0.79 with 70% off!!!

Sigh. These are all fabulous finds but I gotta tell ya, those buttons are my favorite. I really think I have some kind of undiagnosed illness that is characterized by obsessively-compulsively buying old buttons. I just can't get enough!!! Check out the post I just made today on my blog!!!

I sooooo need a box like that! perhaps then I would remember to use the coupons I spend all that time on Sunday afternoon cutting out! By the way that book that I got Boots I got at Barnes and Noble. Hope that helps!

Oh I love the box! I have one JUST like the before picture waiting for some dolling up. What did you use for adhesive and did you sand it first???

Love your blog! Your pages are totally inspiring me to go back to scrapbooking. It has fallen on the wayside the last year or so. I am glad to know I can come here for some scrapping inspiration!
