Box Filled With Treasures & Potpourri Oil

I helped my Mother celebrate her birthday last week ... but she ended up giving me a gift instead.   She had been saving this cute little box for me ... How did she know I would love it so much!!!

Isn't it cute!
I just love the printing on the back ...  
and do you see those cute little hinges?
However ... the real treasure was inside.  
Look at all these Wonderful Wooden Spools!!!
I couldn't have been more thrilled!  
Of course, I realize not everyone gets excited 
about things like this, but I sure do.
What will I do with them...? 

For now, I've just added some of Claire Burke's  potpourri oil to the spools and have them displayed in my living room.  They not only looks wonderful, but smell good too.  

They're just so cute!

Thank You Mom!
I love the gift and the giver!

  1. Hi Geneva, Thank you so much for visiting and your kind comments. Your box is gorgeous. My Mom would probably throw something like that out. She doesn't quite understand my penchant for vintage. She grew up very poor on a farm and wants nothing to do with rusty crusty old things. LOL.....I love that stuff! And the spools in your box were an extra special treat. Hope you will visit often. Happy Day xo Lynn

  2. P.s. I forgot to say Claire Burke is my all time favorite house fragrance. :)

  3. I love it too - old wood, typography and spools = wonderful!

    Thanks for sharing at Knick of Time Tuesday. Feel free to link up one of your favorite posts from the past also - it's a special "extra" for the party this week.

  5. What a sweet little box, I would be very excited about a gift like that, too!
    Hugs, Cindy

  6. Hey Geneva-- I love the box. I just noticed the other day when my girls were here--- I have a collection of boxes! I never realized it.
    Then on Saturday afternoon I noticed---I was looking at all different types of boxes that caught my eye either at Bargain Land or Big Daddy's Flea! ...all types, crates, jeweled, leather bound, metallic...apparently, I have a thing for boxes!

    Love your cool box-- and the spools too! Such a thoughtful Momma you have


  7. What a wonderful treasure your mother gave you. I think you have done the best thing with it...displayed it smelling so lovely!


  8. Happy Birthday, oh wait, it wasn't your birthday, but what a nice gift. Wooden spools and that box, sigh!!

  9. What a treasure trove your mother gave to you. I love the box all by itself, but the spools are an extra surprise. I get excited about things like this too. I exchange presents like this with my mom all the time....the best kind!

  10. What a great box and I bet the spools smell wonderful.

  11. I love your blog! Keep posting. What you did with your home is so inspiring. Now I'm looking forward to seeing what you're going to do with your gardens.
