I picked up this lovely little crate at a yard sale this on Saturday.  I was immediately drawn to  its pale aqua blue color and its excellent condition.

The former owner explained that the crate was used to ship tulips and I discovered the words “Product of Holland” lightly imprinted in the wood.

She told me that she had repurposed the box to store her daughter’s toys and later her granddaughter’s toys.

And now it holds Mattie Windsor’s dress up clothes.
