I got a box of boxes from a building in Cisco that is being renovated. The building housed a drugstore for several decades but has been closed for close to 20 years now. Crazy thing is, the druggist retired, locked the door, and walked away. EVERYTHING was still there–merchandise, drugs, pill bottles, etc.
The new owners are cleaning out, and I snagged a box of jewelry boxes that look like they date from the 1960s to 1980s. Now what to do with a box of little boxes?
A mouse in bed, of course. Made from all recycled materials: pillow was a linen napkin, blanket an embroidered table scarf, and box, well, you know the boxes’ history. Stuffed with cotton picked in Carbon, Texas. I even had to clean the seeds out of the cotton myself. Looks cozy, doesn’t he?
