Favorite Finds-Collar Boxes

Bonjour Mes Amis!
Is there something you collect that you have 'a thing for'? Something so irresistible that it practically leaps right into your arms before you even really know it? A must have in other words. Well, I have 'a thing for' boxes, most recently collar boxes. To be honest they are new 'find' for me. How did I ever miss something so beautifully made?!

I am currently using one as a sewing kit and have had them displayed in my bookcase vignette, along with small tablescapes.  You can find two collar boxes recently listed in my shop. I would love to hear about how you put them to use!

In the early 19th century, Men used the collar boxes as part of their luggage, a travel accessory case that held both the collar and cuffs.
