vintage find.

my middle child, jasper, is four.  he has recently discovered a love of collecting certain things.

sea-glass,...shells,..feathers,...string,...birds nests,...small hooks/screws/coins.

you know. 

boy stuff.

i am loving that he has a love for things like this,..but for a while have struggled with trying to find a way for him to display and add to his 'collection'.

i found the solution yesterday.










its a vintage printers drawer.  

with its tiny little compartments, it's perfect for housing boy stuff.  

how fabulous does this one look as storage for jewels?


or painted?


or simply divine in their natural environment.

What great little treasures he has. Love the display!!

I remember when one of my kiddos was little...she said she was gonna start an "M&Ms" collection (as in the candy) too funny!

Have a great day!
