The stuff in my "save-it-for-a-rainy-day" boxes...*winks*



If you didn't already know, I have trouble throwing out stuff...you know, just in case. *LOL* So I store them in my "save-it-for-a-rainy-day" box/es. 

Ready to see the stuff in my boxes??? *dramatic music plays in the background*


Are those scallop shells? Yes. Those would make a great front and back cover of a mini beach vacation album right? I mean, I will get to them one day. I think. *winks*. And there's a mobile phone cover, old belt buckles, broken jewellery parts, electronic parts, old leather shoe bits...

Yep. Others see them as junk but I see them as possibilities...

I mean, I really use them in my projects...

For instance, I used one of those wheels from broken toys on this project...

One of the old leather shoe straps was on one of these paper bags...

And I have used old lighting parts on these mixed media canvases...


What about you? Do you have a "save-it-for-a-rainy-day" box???

I have boxes and boxes of junk...er...treasures just waiting to be used!! The very sad thing is, I hardly ever touch them!! Why? I don't know!! I just keep adding to them. I think I might need an intervention ;) Have a great day!! Big hugs :)

The first thing I noticed was the toy wheels and wondered what will you do of them..and absolutely amazed by how you did it !! Perfect use !! I do have a box of bits n bobs but sadly I am throwing stuff as it can handle no more neither can I :(

I too hoard lots of things thinking of using them later but that later keeps on delaying :)

I'm always blown away by how you use this bits and pieces! I save some items, but not the same kinds of stuff.

You are so masterful at re-using various bits and bobs! And I LOVE that you do that! I've got a couple of "junk" caches filled with random stuff, too, but you are the queen of recycling!
