Boxing Day

In Britain, Boxing Day is usually celebrated on December 26, the day following Christmas.  Many poorly paid workers were required to work on Christmas Day and took the following day off to visit their families. As they prepared to leave, their employers would present them with Christmas boxes.


Boxing Day at Thistle manor has a different meaning.   I have boxes of all sizes and assortments for different purposes.   There are little boxes.

                                                                    Shaker boxes.

                                                                   Festive boxes

                                                                  Painted  boxes

                                                           and wallpaper boxes

Boxes with a purpose.  The boxes provide an eye pleasing approach to hide all my "stuff."  Important stuff like buttons, fibers, linen, letters, fabric, Christmas ornaments
