But it was for a good cause…

.. and it was cheap!

Does any of us need more yarn? Do I really know what I plan to do with this? (well, actually I do have an idea…)

$3 for the basket!

I’m thinking the red boucle (50 wool/50 mohair) for a tightly knit boxy pillbox hat? Maybe combined with the auburn kid mohair.

I’m trying to clean out “stuff”, because more is always coming in…

50 cents!

These are Lincoln Beauty Ware, but I can’t find any online that are similar. Mostly I see them with the labels horizontal or with black and gold labels. Here’s one that must’ve started with me in worse shape, and I didn’t like the black and gold, which promptly fell off, so I moved to barn storage of nails and such.

I love rectangular storage, and I have another set that I use. They’re really handy, but I don’t have the counter space to keep them out.

These are Garner Ware, and you can see them around online in chrome. I saw a matching yellow breadbox dated 1950′s.

Grey day, maybe an excuse to go hook up the dvd to the old tv to watch True Blood (the next dvd just got here!), something I’m not excited about the recent 8th grade graduate seeing… I can work on the boxy cardigan… Maybe…

    WHERE do you find such treasures? Yarn is perfect for a pillbox, esp. on yOur head. All those lovely orangeys.

    Wouldn’t it be great if we could actually follow the rule, “Something in, something out,” as in stuff? It would be great, but I can’t accomplish it.

    Those canisters are wonderful! They have so much more character than the mass produced ones I have from Target.
