Remember this, my lovely little 10p car boot sale buy seed box, full to bursting with my packets of seeds last year. Well this year I have two sets of seeds to store, my seeds and my Dad's seeds. When Dad gave up the allotment he handed over to my safekeeping (and growing and eating) all his seed collection.
Well looking at how full my box was already I knew I would have to find an alternative storage container.
And here she is, a bigger version, also bought at a carboot sale a couple of years ago, a lovely rustic handmade drawer. It was under someones stall with a handful of old chisels and spanners in it, I asked the elderly gentleman if the drawer was for sale and he was amazed, 'why on earth would you want that' he said,' just because it's so nice' I replied. It has lovingly carved out little dovetailed joints and a neat ancient handle which had all caught my eye. He smiled and said 'she's yours for a pound', so she is, all mine and I used her on my stall to display lavender bunches, I used her under the bed to hide away little bits and pieces and now...
.. with the addition of a few of Lovely Hubby files ...
... a few freezer labels and a bit of cutting out.
She's my seed store.
Taking care of my seeds and Dad's seeds. Bringing a smile to my face when I sort through the packets, bringing happy memories of car booting, planting and talking veggies with my Dad.
Memories in a one pound drawer - priceless.
