This is the perfect time of year for attending flea markets. And what could be better than finding a crusty orange toolbox to go with the fall foliage.

Happy Fall Y'all!

I don't even consider it Fall until we start seeing your incredible displays for the season!

I can't imagine a better way to show off Fall's Harvest of colorful mums than this amazing, old, vibrant orange tool box. This is a wonderful way to welcome in the season and all who enter your cottage. Thank you again, Jim. You always show us how to make our world a little bit better with your vintage finds and creations...!
