Fetish for Boxes???

I've be out for a while due to surgery, but everything went well and I had a beautiful New Year!

It's that time where I have to begin focusing on studies again but I have to ask the question, "Am I fetish for boxes?"  

The other day I was browsing through my blog and I'm amazed at the number of boxes I've painted and/or decorated.  Believe me, I don't go looking for boxes to paint, I just believe if you can save a few $$$ use what you have, and I guess that's what I did ;-)  So let's see...

There you have it!  Is it just me?  Am I obsessed with boxes???  Did I mention I have another box in front of me that I'm contemplating painting? :-)   LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW!  I'll be back after my studies.

Funny! They're all great projects. I think I have a basket fetish, a shelf fetish, definitely a burlap fetish. I guess there are worse things LOL!

You certainly have done amazing things with boxes Sherry! It's nice to take an inventory of what we've done and our blogs sure help with that. Hope you are doing well!

I love your boxes,and you have inspired me to paint some, too. I have been collecting boxes, and will blog soon about how mine turn out. I have wondered how the Mail Box is working for you, are you more organized about your mail now? I am so horrible about the mail, I absolutely hate to open anything unless it is a card or personal letter. The mailbox wouldn't help me, I am beyond help, I have tried a specified desk drawer, a wire basket, a drawer in the coffeetable---I can ignore it completely!! I hope it is going better for you, life would be so much simpler for me, and I know for you, too, if we didn't have this shortcoming.

Your boxes are really nice but I don't know how well they would hold up with people always touching them? As a laundry basket?
Wanted to thank you for your visit
to my blog and yes, I have the perfect
box and am going to paint it for my
closet.

I love the mail box. I'm going to have to come here and do a check on your creations,for when I do my sewing room. Plastic tub might be useful, but they're expensive and ugly. I think I'd rather follow your advice and do a box!
