So here's another fun way to make a different kind of box.
I started with a wood craft box and a candlestick holder.
And then I made my design on all of the pieces before I assembled it. The candlestick holder had a metal insert in it for a candle so I just pried it out. That way I just attached it to the box with a screw from the inside of the box.
And here is the completed box!
Don't you love these sunflowers? Thank you K & Co. again!
So what can you fill this box with? Well, since it's on a candlestick holder--what else, but candles!
So let me tell you about my "business trip". I'm going to the Highway 127 Yard Sale. It's almost 700 miles of non-stop flea markets from dawn to dusk that ranges from Michigan to Alabama (BTW--HGTV has a show about it every year). And for you scoffers of flea markets--don't knock em until you've tried one--especially this one. PLUS, you get to see and meet people from all walks of life--especially at this one. Believe me, this is a great place for people watchers, or people persons alike! I'm leaving early tomorrow morning and won't be back until Monday night, which brings up another issue.
Can anyone recommend a good RELIABLE laptop for me. Mine is broken!! And it's only 8 months old. We still have a warranty on it, and the computer repair man came to our house to "fix" it last week. After replacing almost half of the computer, it still doesn't work, and now we're waiting for his return with more parts. Between you and me, I'm not holding my breath. To say that I'm upset, is putting it mildly. And to add to that, I won't have my laptop to take with me : (
I do think that I'll have access to the internet though. Alot of the motels now offer computer use to their guests, so hopefully. I'll take any suggestions and cost isn't really a major issue (I'm a PC, not a MAC). Just don't tell me about a laptop that rhymes with the word Bell!
