I love the cabinet. Very creative and so chic!!!! Wish I could find a cabinet like that. Was it part of a desk, like the hutch part, or a card catalog from a libray, you think?? Where did you get it? I love it.

I save seeds as well and I decopauged shoe boxes to put them in.

I think it might be a spice chest reproduction. It's very solid. I found it at a thrift store, years ago. I love your seed saver box. Did you use magazine pics?

Yes, I used magazine pieces that I cut out. I have so many gardening magazines, the ones I DON'T keep, so I started cutting away. I've had the boxes for several years now and love them. I'd also love to have a cabinet like you got. I have a table that someone sat out for the trash that is really nice, and I do all of my seed sorting there, and a cabinet like that would be perfect on it. Now I have something new to look for at our used furniture store! I usually go to those places with nothing in mind, but now I have something to add to my list to search for. I just love how you did that cabinet, though. I love the fairy girls. It was very creative how you placed them and all.

Isn't it amazing how we hang on to things we find only to finally do something with them years and years later!? I have so many things here that I hang on to for that very reason. Almost grabbed an older wooden kitchen chair my neighbor sat out for the garbage, and my husband prohibited me from running out to get it. Said it looked fine right where it was at. LOL But it was so tempting. I'm just running out of "storage" room for all my treasures!

Any other projects you're going to tackle?
