Separated At Birth

I found this toolbox at an antique mall not far from here. I fell in love with it as soon as I laid eyes on it.

I love the dark farmish green color and general rustiness of it. It will be great to put in my office to organize more of my junk.

When I got it home I realized that it was the same color as my tool caddy that I bought last year at the Rural Society Antique And Garden Show in Mount Vernon, Ohio and featured in my Winter Front Porch post. That green must be a popular color for the farm crowd.

(I got very thirsty while taking photos for the Winter 2011-12 Porch)

It was like they were separated at birth.

And then one of them ate a whole lot of meat and potatoes and got a lot bigger than the other one and then they were one of those sets of twins that no one can believe are actually twins.

Yeah, like that.

    Great find, I’m loving it. You can never go wrong picking up a little battered metal toolboxes. They are like a little black dress for home decor nuts like me.

    I fell in love with that tool box too, as soon as I saw your link at Coastal Charm. I knew I would click and swoon. Be still my heart! That is a keeper right there. Love. It! And the little Winter scene makes me long for something even somewhat resembling cool air to blow this way. So sweet!
