Box of Dreams

Last week while my sister was visiting from out of town she and I went antiquing. I enjoy antiquing, but she absolutely loves it, and she did some research and found a huge antiques mall located in Canandaigua, NY, which is an easy hour-and-a-half drive from Casa Jaquandor. Among a few other things, I bought this lovely box:

Adventures in Antiquing 7: New jewelry box! Not sure what I'll use it for as of yet. #antiquing #jewelrybox

At the time I had no idea what I was going to do with it, but it's really nice! Well-put-together, with that lovely soft lining. Obviously it's meant for jewelry (or so I think), and I don't own much jewelry of my own, but I couldn't pass it up.

And then, a few days later, the obvious thing to keep in the box--at least the top part--occurred to me.

Behold my entire collection of fountain pens!

The wood box I bought last week is perfect storage for my fountain pens! #fountainpen #antiquebox

That makes me happy. I've been rekindling my love of fountain pens of late, and this is a much better way of holding them than standing them all up in a mug, which is what I had been doing.

However, looking at this set-up, it appears that I have no more space for any more fountain pens. Hmmmmm...maybe next time we go to that antiques mall, I'll look for another box!
