Today, I'm featuring a make-up case. Now, it's not the make-up case that's the big deal, tho. It's what I'm using it for. I wish this had been my idea, but many years ago, a friend of mine thought of buying a vintage make-up case and using it to store old photos in a very organized way. I've held that idea and looked at many a case in varying condition and price, but a couple of weeks ago, I found one that was in great condition and at a terrific price; $6.50. There's some wear on the handle where a ring wore off the leather cover, but other than that, it's in great shape. I got it home and over a couple of weeks, pulled out all my boxes of pictures and consolidated them into the case.
These are a couple of old hoots! Me with Santa and my first grade class photo.
And, this is how they fit in. The case is just tall enough to accomodate the 8x10's in the back. Now, I just need to find something to fit between the two straps inside the cover, but it's too big for a 5x7 and too small for an 8x10.
That's how I'm storing my photos now. And, I really like the idea. Hope you enjoyed it. Now head on over to Suzanne's and see the other posts...
Oh, Brother! My boss just asked me to go to Minneapolis in early March. Just the thought makes me shiver!
Take care and have a great day! Lane
