Boxes, boxes, boxes.

I love 'em EACH 'n EVERYONE. Let me tell you about my boxes. They are totally handmade.

Most of my boxes will have an attached top.

Big ones,,,,small ones,,,,round ones,,,,,square ones....Hope you will take a good long look.

I am 76...... I Have to Be Making Something...ALWAYS...... I have been making things for so many years I have lost count.

I sew.....quilts pillows, purses...cutains...some clothing. I once owned my own alteration shop in Tidewater, Virginia.......Choice Garments.....

..I paint a litte, not very good.....but I refuse to quit trying.

.I work in clay...my pieces are hand formed. I love doing this. it is so soothing...and when I get into doing these things I love, I lose myself.

And so,,,,,,,,,I have a house full of things I have made.

Some are here at BoxesByCrane

Some are at CranesLane here at ETSY and some at TheWordPlace at ETSY>

I still want to have my own shop again. Is it too late. I don't think so.

I hope I will be around to see my granddaughter married. She is 10 now.

GOD BLESS YOU each and everyone. Thanks for stopping by....Please come again and come often.
