This wine/champagne box has a little more character than a box of Franzia. Im sure it will go from room to room as Thanksgiving Day progresses, but for now it fits snug as a bug in a rug atop my IBM time clock. Looks like they were made for each other.
 chose this drawer for my box because of the patina and the color of the handle fit nicely with my Thanksgiving color way.
Whats inside the box? All the fixings for thirsty people.
Yet another look.
Let me see...we have ice cubes in a French tulip bucket.
Strawberries in a sherbet dish.
I love how the dominoes on the time clock outline the drawer. Sometimes things just work. Destiny.
Truly and easy and lovely way to serve up your beverages for Thanksgiving.

This project was cooked up with love for my darling daughter Elizabeth. The story goes like this. My brother-in-law only serves one kind of wine at Thanksgiving and it comes in a box. When it seems to be empty he removes the bladder and squeezes out every last drop. Any loo hoo, he has quite the love affair with Franzia. Because of this we fondly nicknamed him Uncle Box Wine Wayne. Apparently E at the age of three was a very good listener. She was also very articulate and polite. When we arrived for Thanksgiving that year she walked up to Wayne, shook his hand, and said "Hello, Uncle Box Wine Wayne. thank you for having us for Thanksgiving."  Out of the mouths of babes. Wayne was unaware of his nickname prior to that moment. I thought he might be upset, but no...he was beaming with pride. In honor of this I have put E's beverages in in a box...JUNKMARKET Style.

shabbychick writes: Sue - I love how you've used drawer #4 (and using them out of order...so totally our Miss Sue!).

I'm sure Elizabeth and her friend enjoyed every little bit of their beverage center (and strawberries too...yummy). I love the tulip bucket - where do you find this stuff?? :)

So well done....!

MimiToria writes: Another great idea for boxes, and supplied with a fun story to go with it. A fun way to serve up drinks, for sure, and unusual items you use to display them in.
Hope your Thanksgiving was great!
