i can't believe it's taken me this long to feature one of my favorite thrifted items of this year! i bought this lovely tea box over a month ago!

i am in complete love with the graphics on this box. from the wood grain patterned background to the the vivid colors of the flowers and the graphic moon label on the front....it's all fantastic!

this thrifty find broke the bank at a whopping $40! much, much more than i typically spend on any one item, but i just couldn't resist.

the inside of the box is completely lined in tin. while i loved he graphics on the outside, discovering the tin on the inside is what really put me over the edge.

i have a major obsession with boxes and drawers of any sort, so this definitely found the right home.

how about you? do you have collections? what are the things you can't resist when you come across them?
