the old printers tray

i've always loved old printers trays and have often looked on ebay for one to fill with shells... i found this one at bondi markets a while ago, not the usual large size but i quite like this smaller section. 










enjoying the last of the warm weather here. 
have a great day!

  10. Oh I like this. I just found you on My uncommon slice. I posted an old drawer that I filled up with beach treasures. But I also shared some inspirational pics of shadow boxes and cubbies on that same post, I should add yours to it.
