I wasn't sure what I would do with this bad boy when I picked it up but I knew it had 'practical' written all over it. I had to give it a good clean, of course. It was pretty grimey.
I finally decided that it would be the perfect solution to an ongoing problem we seem to have at the Scurry House. The Hubs and I are both pretty sentimental and we can't bring ourselves to throw away birthday cards, letters on cute stationery and event invitations. We have a whole dresser drawer full of sentimentals such as this. So, I picked out some of my favorites and dumped them in the canister.
It is actually very practical and helps clear the clutter in our drawers. And the best part is, we dont have to feel guilty for throwing away any letters....until it gets full of course! And it's fun to flip through them from time to time.
Here it is gracing our side table in the living room. I applologize for the horrible flash photography.
Have you scored any good finds from your neighborhood streets lately? Are you into that sorta thing or does it give you the creeps?
