Wordless Wednesday: Property of Pandora
On Sunday we visited one set of in-laws for a post-Christmas-and-New-Year catch-up. While we were there, my father-in-law offered us this chest. It’s not really in the spirit of my de-cluttering challenge, to bring something else into the house, but I love boxes and chests so I jumped at the chance to have it.
It seems to me that it’s full of possibilities. Bean likes to play with the catches (on a recent shopping trip where I was looking for a new bag, he suggested any numer of bags with horrendous shiny buckles and locks – he’s obsessed!) and also to drum on the lid. Plum, in her new know-no-fear outlook on life now she is fully mobile, likes to climb on it and stand on it, dancing. I like to think of it as a pirate treasure chest, and wonder if I hope hard enough, will I open it to find it bursting with golden dubloons? FiL suggested it as a toy box. I rather think I may have found my new stash box for all my yarn and fabric 🙂
It may not get rid of any clutter, but it’ll do a damn fine job of hiding some of it from view!
