One man's trash….I found a home for my retro Animal Crackers box!

And honestly this became a treasure – I’m SO happy!

Keebler - Animal Crackers cookie box - partial uncut box sheet - early 1970's

Jason on Flickr, found my picture of this box that I posted for Pam’s 1st Annual Useless but Wonderful contest. It turns out that this is Jason’s “thing” – Go visit his Flickr page to check out the fabulous collection he has! It’s great if you’re into retro packaging or even art!

So, a bit of experimental packing and off it went to it’s new home! I love it when someone really cherishes the past!

Thanks Jason for giving this a great home!

Another notch in our Mid-Century Motel belt is the Apache Motel in Moab, Utah (be careful, fabulous photos ahead!) Thanks to my friend Staci for this one!
