Vintage Fun

Welcome to February! Is it just me or did January fly on by faster than a speeding bullet? Yikes! At any rate, here we are and I have a fun project to share. It's not even about Valentine's Day. ;-) I have been collecting various bits and pieces of vintage board games, toys and other miscellanea for a while now because I have had this Configurations Box idea in my head:


I have finally brought it to fruition! It makes me happy to look at it because it reminds me of all sorts of things from my childhood. Old school Little People play sets, playing Monopoly with my brother (I always tried to buy all four railroads) and the cut throat UNO games we would have on camping trips. It's so much fun to fill up each one of the compartments on these Configurations Boxes. Here are some details:

This month the task it is to Show It With Words. Create a project including your favorite words or quotes and link it up at Inspiration Journal for a chance to win $50 Emporium dollars to spend at Inspiration Emporium.

  5. Hello Lisa,

    love your configuration box cause you really made it your own : not just putting lovely stuff in, but things that has a meaning for you and bring back memories just seeing them !
