Lace & Cigar Box, originally uploaded by everything vintage.

Once upon a time, in my youth–as the family legend goes–my mom asked me what I was doing and I replied, “Just walkin’ around lookin’ in ol’ Roi Tan boxes.”

This could so easily be a photo from my very own studio, but I stumbled upon it on flikr. It is attributed to “everything vintage” and I thank her for letting me borrow her photo to use in my blog.

I also adore lace, hello!

I have at least one photo of a Roi Tan box which I’ll try to dig out and in the meantime, you might try to find yourself one and see what you can find inside.
