  7. my hubby is droolin’ over the cars, while the green eyed dragon got me over those AMAZING cigar boxes!!!!!!!! you are truly the queen! 🙂

  8. I love it when people I know clean out their costume jewelry and ask me if I really wants “this junk” – YES! Glad you made some great finds after the bad week you had.

  9. Oh I sure hope you share what you do with those boxes and jewelry on your blog. I’m sure it will be beautiful as all your work is. I love cigar boxes also but finally gave them up – I just didn’t have any room for them with all my stamping things. I used to buy them at the cigar shop downtown. I would go down on my lunch hour and see what was in the stash for the day. Some very very interesting ones let me tell you. And they were cheap.

  10. Oh my!!!
    I can’t wait to see what you create with that jewlery and cigar boxes!!!!
    I have fond memories of my greek grandfather and his cigars.

  11. I will look forward to seeing those cigar boxed alltered. I know you will do wonders with them. And yes……..If would never alter that box of your grandfather’s. What a treasure.

  12. See when one door close another one really does open up. look at everything you found. I sure am glad you sound like your old self again. Can not wait to see what you make out of some of this stuff.

  13. I too have a ton of cigar boxes. I’m not sure what to do with them so I can’t wait to see so I can get some inspiration, lol!!

  14. Looks like you have a lot of “fodder” to feed your creativeness until you decide which path to follow. My hat is off to you for forging ahead into the unknown. That’s the spirit girl!!

  15. wow!!! What wonderful finds!! Those cigar boxes are awesome!! I found lots of these at my dad’s when I was there this summer, but only one was in salvagable condition. I didn’t have it long….my son asked for it as soon as he got it, and as he asks for so little of this sort of stuff, I let him keep it. I know he will take good care of it.
    Lovin’ all that jewelry, too!! I can just imagine that it must have felt a little like Christmas as you were going through all the treasures!
    Wishing you all the best in your creative endeavors…I just know it will all work out for the best! When He closes one door, He opens another!
    Inky hugs,
