I woke up to a very nice surprise today.
Remember yesterday’s post on being gifted by others? What timing!
Just this AM, friend Kelly dropped this toolbox off by my front door. She found it at a garage sale, and being that it reminded her of me, it was brought my way.
I had to run into town today and debated stopping at a thrift store for some added inspiration. You know how it is… you have more than enough to work with at home, but to your eyes, the stock isn’t fresh. Something new to you is.
New toys inspire me! Are you like that too?
I was so excited! The toolbox is cute, wearing a really nice shape. The rustic wood is stained a dark brown so anything would nicely pop against it.
I especially enjoyed the pipe handle and noted how it was built and secured.
Until my eyes landed on the dried, faded hydrangeas on the patio ladder. Hmm… one last go with these before the fog hits them would be nice!
A tiny bit of colour straight from the bush might be nice though too…
Sometimes all it takes to be inspired is a little something new to work with. So if you ever find your creativity has somewhat diminished, maybe it’s time to stock up on ‘a new toolbox.’
All I can say this round is, thank goodness for the Kellys in the world!
