How lucky am I?

I have all my friends trained! I put the word out that I like unique, old wood boxes, preferring those with advertising and such and now I'm reaping the rewards. Seriously lucky.

A friend found these two red boxes as he was cleaning his barn. No idea where they came from but clearly one came from 'MIKE JONES'. They both have silver painted interiors, one with a tray and the other with slots along the inside for (I'm assuming) files and narrow tools. And the bonus? A pair of old welding goggles! O. M. G. Seriously. Lucky.

Not only did I get these two great boxes, I also got this incredible red wood well bucket. I'm just over the top. I'm so pleased with myself that I'm trembling like it's Christmas morning. You couldn't stand to be around me in this moment. NK.

I'm putting these two boxes and the uber-cool well bucket on my front porch and I'll be smiling every time I drive in and get a hankering for a glass of iced tea and a trashy book.

I'm in heaven.

That does it! Everybody is invited to come on over and we can all sit and visit and sip iced tea on our porch.

Love collecting those boxes too but not lucky enough to get cool ones like you. I have been a bad friend and haven't read your blog in a few months. Thanks again for the tent although I feel kind of guilty for keeping it. Glad the sun is shining for all of us here today in Lincoln.
