little boxes...

So I was at Rinks flea market in Marietta the other day, and as I was admiring a small set of metal drawers filled with junk, when the guy who ran the booth asked, "So you like screws huh?" And I said, "Not really, but I'd like the set of drawers they come in." My favorite storage solutions are old painted drawers from desks and dressers, mail sorters (don't tell the post office!) and suitcases. Until I finally getting around to photographing my studio, here are some other beautiful storage units.

This beautiful studio belongs to Heather Bailey, no wonder she creates such beautiful things!

I've seen so many blogs post about chalkboards and chalkboard paint lately that I wanted to get to posting some images i've been collecting.
