~Changing Things Out in the Printer’s Box~

I’ve had a printer’s box hanging on the wall in my living room for several years with lots of miniatures that was collected over the years…but it is time for a change.


So the printers box got a new look with some printer block letters and old vintage pieces of jewelry. I actually found these printer block letters at JoAnn Fabrics. I was thrill to find them, because I have been looking for old ones with no luck for several years and these block letters have that old look to them.


I also kept a few miniatures that I got on a couple of special trips that we took. A mini horse and buggy from when we went to Amish Country and a mini Mackinaw Bridge from our trip to Mackinaw Island. Two mini dogs for our beloved pets that we’ve had…and a silver Hershey Kiss that my hubby gave me many years ago. Also kept a few sewing miniatures and 2 tiny angels.


And of course, my Junk sign made out of scrabble tiles.


Hope everyone is having a great week.

Until next time….       Blessings from me to you, ~Cindy

    Hi Cindy, Love the change you gave to your printers box. The junk sign is so cute. Adding vintage jewelry is a great idea. My printers box is in my sewing room/laundry and I keep my thimble collection in it. I should spell out thimbles with the scrabble tiles. You have inspired me.
    Hugs, CM

    Love it Cindy. Love the old letters. Will have to check out JoAnns. I have had a printers drawer forever. It is in my craft room right now holding stamps. Yours looks great. Hoping Spring has arrived in Ohio and all is well.

    I’ve always liked those printer boxes like that. Such a good idea to put those letter stamps in there that you found. They really do look old.

    You lost me right in the middle of your post when you said you found the letters at Joann’s. I headed over to their nline site, but didn’t find them. Are they a recent purchase.

    Love the tray.

    These are so much fun with minis. And mine has seashells. I would love to make another one! Enjoy your week! Hugs, Diane

    I used to have a lot of minis but have let many of them go over the years. My hubby had a printer when he was a kid and his brother has the whole set up he had -including the printer box. Wish I had it–but–oh-well!

    I saved the minis that have some special meaning for me, too.

    Thank you for stopping by and leaving me comments, Cindy. I don’t have a direct email for you. xo Diana

    Your printers box is full of interesting treasures, Cindy. what a great way to display things collected from fun trips! Love the block letters.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

    What a fun and creative way to display some of your tiny treasures. Love the block letters, the old ones really are getting hard to find.

    My sister emptied hers completely and hung over a bed. Looks good. I still have mine completely full of little items from childhood, etc. I too need to update mine and I also have a thimble collection so think I may empty it and put only thimbles in it. Thanks for the idea!
