i've made more containers and storage thingies.  i'm loving making these.  the possibilities are endless when it comes to lid ideas.  i love using the old electrical parts for lids!  it just makes me feel giddy to find a use for stuff that even i thought was crap but knew to save.  i want more....i got these in vermont and only have a few left.  where to find those for free....

the brown box lids are made from an electrical panel someone gave me. i am especially fond of the writing on it  love that.  i fashioned the little handle by bending the metal ( i should know what that is called but i dont and i guess it isnt important).

i sure am having fun with these.  focusing on making more as well as more pendants for the howlidays.
