Pepsi Crates!

This morning I was browsing through my favorite blogs on the sidebar, and was reading a post from Leigh at Tales from Bloggeritaville.  Being a Jimmy Buffett girl myself, I just love the title!  Here is the link to Leigh's blog:   Tales From Bloggeritaville

Anyway, there were some old Pepsi crates featured, and I thought, hey, I have some of those!  I got mine from Bring Recyling in Eugene around 20 years ago.  Apparently they are the in thing now ... the cat's meow.  

Here is how I used mine:

Filled with treasures my kids gave me when they were little.  The old whiskey bottles came from my Grandma's house.  I don't know why she saved them, or why I do, but they are small and cute.

Here is my caddy for the kids art supplies.  They get their own; mine are in my creating room.  Felt pens dry up over time, even when you don't use them very often, so I replace them every once in a while.  Usually in August when they are on sale for cheap.  Pencil erasers dry out around here too, so I have the pencils stored with the points up.  That is Cary's Uncle Sonny over there in the corner.

I should have kept the one crate I found. It wasn't a Pepsi or Coke crate but had my hometown name on it. I kept it for awhile, then I gave it to my nephew or my brother who both still live there. I could have been even more organized if I'd kept it. hehehe
