UNIQUE TOOL BOX AND A TOUCH OF FALL

This is another one of those 'shopping from the garage' posts.  This unique little tool box came from an estate sale a couple of years ago.  It is actually three boxes in one.
 It functions because of this unusual hinge.
 Opening the lid reveals the first box; then that box becomes the lid for the second box; and, finally, the second box becomes the lid for the third box.
 What a treasure -- they just don't make packaging like that anymore!
By the way, this is the only touch of Fall decorating I've done around here this year.  Just lazy, I guess, but I'm sure enjoying the cool weather!

I will be linking up to the following blogs this week for their always entertaining parties.

Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday
Funky Junk Interiors for Saturday Nite Special
A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday
