My Rummage Sale Treasure

Have you ever wanted something and it had to be exactly what you wanted? No alterations or substitutions, the exact thing! Well for over a year I have wanted an old cigar box to fill with pears. Weird, I know,LOL but that's what I wanted. I have searched and searched for an old cigar box and around here that's like hunting a needle in a haystack.
And Sat. WALA!!! I found my cigar box and it was $1.00!!!!! I grabbed it and here is what it looked like before. Well I have actually already mod podged the labels back on.


Unfortanately, the front label and top label are missing. But I have attached the inside and side labels. Here is what it looks like now.


I decided not to attach the label to the front of the box. I just couldn't make myself mess it up. What do you think? Does it need a label on the front or leave it alone? I only need one more item to have that cabinet looking like I want it to.
Until next time...

What a great find! I love the pears sitting in it too! I too would leave it as it is. So what is the one thing that would make the cabinet complete???

Hope you have a great day!
