thrifted Christmas display box

My sister found this great box at a thrift store. I plan to fill it with Christmas items. A lot of these are thrifted. Some were picked up around the house from Christmas trees or from the boxes of Christmas decorations we have on hand. The tiny copper cookie cutters were in the kitchen pantry with my other cookie cutters. The picture for the little frame was cut from a Christmas card.

I expect to add to and edit this display over the years, making it better every year. This is just the first step. It will be fun to keep an eye out for little things that will work in this box.

    I love boxes like these!! What a neat idea to use it for Christmas! I have one in my bedroom with special items in it. It was a 70’s decorating thing. I have an old printer’s drawer … antique … that has different size spaces for storing “type” in the old days. I always planned to replace the bottom as it was damaged and hang it to do the same thing! Perhaps I will bring it out this year and put some zing into my Christmas Spirit! I need something to do different … same old stuff gets boring!
