Hi everyone! :)   Julie with you here today to share my take on this month's challenge :) 

I was recently at an antique store and found this Wine collection box -- Wine box collection  (hmmmm ... not sure how to say that -- I don't drink, so I am not sure what this box would be officially called! LOL!) ... anyhoo -- it's a wooden box, with a glass top -- and I picked it up for $10.00 :)

At first I thought, what am I going to do with this??? And then it hit me!!! I have been struggling lately with my spools of sewing threads -- because I have another BAD habit at the antique stores I frequent ... when I see a bag full of sewing spool threads ... I BUY THEM!!! Because let's face it ... thread is NOT cheap at the big box stores ...so when I see a bag full of spools at the antique store for $3.00 I grab them!! :) 

So here is what I had  ---

a small Rubbermaid box filled to the brim with my threads :)

And here is the wine box I bought from the antique store :) 

I was going to paint it PINK (yes, I am OBSESSED with PINK! LOL!!!) .... but the wood was in such good shape, I decided not to touch the finish :) 

And here is what I made with it using Bella Blvd.'s Family Forever collection and some Maya Road chipboard pieces :) 

And here is the inside of the box ... the new HOME for all my sewing goodies :) 

Can't wait to see what you create for this challenge ~~ Julie :)
