Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...

My son has an eye for finding unusual items and knowing exactly what to do with them.
He has inherited the "junking gene" as well ... and like the rest of us in the family, gravitates to certain things.
He recently found this gorgeous metal tool box and thought of me.
"It looks like something you would like Mum for your studio" he said as he carried this very heavy metal box upstairs for me.
As soon as I saw the drawers and noticed that inside each had been fitted with maple slats to separate the spaces, I thought of my over flowing basket of stamps and stamping ink.
I've added a few items to the outside too :-)
Now all my stamps and inks have there own special  spot ...
stamps I forgot I even had ...
all nicely displayed ...
separated by themes ...
I absolutely love it!!
It has my "Stamp of Approval"
:-)
So thankful for my kind spirited son
for thinking of me
when he found it
Brought out my container of word magnets & decided to make a phrase with random words ...
"make everything with a grateful heart"
~perfect for a Thankful {things I love} Thursday, I'd say ♥~

hi Kerrie ~ I had been keeping all my stamps in a large wicker basket and had forgotten about a lot of them too :-) Once I started bringing them out and organizing them I found a few duplicates :-) It's been so nice to pull out a drawer and have the stamp I want right there ♥
