I love old vases, and I love that these have a tropical theme. They are great for pens and pencils.
These watchmaker tins from Lee Valley (online) are the perfect way to store the hundred and some buttons and buckles I have.
This vintage knitting tote I found on ebay and it is the ideal place to keep patterns that I use a lot.
I found this old tackle box in
a junk store, complete with old fishing tackle inside. I keep my small sewing items in it.
