Stream of Consciousness...The Elegance of Utility

Today's inspiration is a collection of boxes (and brushes, only one shown) that we've found along our travels. From the hand stenciling of a utility tray to the hand drawn wallpaper on a pantry box, these items harken a time when even the littlest chore was synonymous with pride and beauty and accomplishment.
