There is so much to love about this wonderful vintage art box from the 1940's.
The box and all the old tins holding paints, pastels and water colours,
all the sweet pictures and cut-outs.
It's obviously been cherished and clearly enjoyed,
and makes one nostalgic for their own childhood.
I especially love the vintage graphics on all the tins and boxes.
I love this!
It's so charming how this kit was called,
Springtime Crayon and Water Color Outfit.
It's no wonder so many of us deeply appreciate things from the past.
They were so beautifully made or presented.
Maybe it's because we leave this world but our treasured things stay behind,
left with our imprint and energy, and love.
Somehow all the wear and tear just makes them more soulful and appealing...
the patina, their age.
All I know is that this cherished possession called out to me...
to bring it home.
You know that I believe that many treasures find their next caretaker.
Could it perhaps be you?
to make it
IL TUO TESORO.
