My sweet grandmother-in-law let me pick through her garage the other weekend, and didn't even blink at the little pile of treasures I found and loaded into my car.
Among them was the coolest metal box evah- I'm not sure what it originally was- which made it home with me to be cleaned up and stashed for juuuuust the right use.
This morning the perfect use for it came to me: a new seed box. I've needed something bigger and sturdier for quite a while, but have been making my old one do (it was once a sidewalk chalk box).
Now I have a ventilated box with an attached lid that won't blow away, and all my seed packets fit inside with room to spare... and it looks cool, too!
Note to self: when it comes time to buy seeds for a garden again, do not buy any more dill! I saved way more than I remembered... and now I can see I'm set for quite a while!
Thanks for the great box, Nanny!
