Pretty, functional storage boxes

Have you seen these beautiful storage boxes? I love, love, LOVE them! The designs are by artist Susan Winget, and the construction is very sturdy although they are only made of heavy cardboard.

I just love the various sizes, the romantic nature-inspired designs, the hidden magnetic clasp on the flap, and the pretty grosgrain bow adorning the front.

I currently have… hmm, six of them I think. They hide things that I need and use but that are very unsightly in a cottagey mom-cave.

They even come with a pretty gift tag attached – see it hiding in the ribbon on my shabby mail tin? It’s the modern-day version of vintage ephemera. It makes me wish that every product had an attractive, artistic tag – I would no doubt collect them!

Here are my most recent acquisitions, 50 percent off at Joann Fabrics! Large size was $7.50…

…and this very small one was $3.75.

As much as I appreciate and use plastic storage tubs, I don’t like to have them in plain sight – even in rooms that aren’t my cottage haven. But these pretty and useful boxes are more than worthy to remain in full view – hiding the things I need but in a truly lovely way.

Do you have a favorite type of storage container that fits your style? How about a favorite nature artist? I am also a fan of Marjolein Bastin and Susan Branch.

More soon,

PS – I’m linking my beautiful boxes to Patti & Paula’s “What’s It Wednesday” Party on their blog, Ivy and Elephants, and to Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage!
