The Box Lady!

Yes, I admit it. I am a box lady. I just can't help myself. It seems no matter where I go they call out to me. I have them everywhere. Most are for storage, some just because I couldn't resist. Even my children have fancy hat boxes to store their toys and books. So when it came to Make Mine Pink's, Pink Friday this week, I was thinking of gift baskets and gift boxes came to mind. I am thinking in addition to baskets, it would be fun to have a few gift sets in a fancy box as well. Here are a few pictures of three boxes/trunks I acquired this week. I really have to stop this. I am running out of room! I may be willing to part with one this Friday chocked full of goodies of course.We did a little early pumpkin party this weekend with friends. Here are a few shots of the kiddies having fun. Have a wonderful week and a Happy Halloween!

I LOVE BOXES!!! I buy them to use for display...I would have every room stacked to the ceiling if I could!

Kids are cute...nothing like a sugar high, right?

Hi Box Lady,
It looks as though we all suffer from the same malady...but how could we not. Boxes are so pretty and they keep things so tidy (well, sometimes they do). Your kiddies are absolutely precious.....they look as though they are enjoying their Halloween sweets a little early!! Have a great week!!

I love boxes too. They are terribly addictive! It's a good idea to use one or two for the 'baskets'. Looks like the kiddies had some good times with the pumpkins.

First off, your kiddos are adorable, they look like they were having a blast, pumpkins and candy... who can resist.

Secondly, I'm a box collector too, anything to make organizing pretty.

Carrie, I am a fellow box lover! I can hardly ever resist them when I am out and about. Good thing we don't live near one another. It would be a race.

Hi Carrie! Boxes, baskets, it all works. I love them too and you would think I would be so organized. Only thing is, when I put something away in them, they are away forever!! Now, that is another story. Your children are so cute! Happy Halloween to them!

Ok I have box issues as well. I really love hat boxes.I really love a lot of things. i have a diffinate collectors eye. The black and white box is so Carrie.I don't ever make gift baskets in baskets. LOL i live behind a strip mall and at Christmas the trash is ull of baskets from gift baskets. so i decided to make the container something functional. who could throw away a hat box? Not me. Nice post. Cute kids. Lilli
