Printers’ Trays

I trained as a journalist from the late 70s so I have always had printers’ trays (or printers’ drawers as they are also called). We actually used them in those days and I used to take any old drawers they threw out and use them for display.

These two I bought here in Sweden – they still have the old metal letters in some of the drawers.

The top one holds all my clay animals and African matchbox puzzles. The bottom one holds mementoes – from stones and shells picked up on special beaches, to tiny snow globes and Russian nesting dolls.

These photographs are a bit dull and fuzzy – apologies again. As I mentioned yesterday, it is very hard to get good photographs with a bad camera during winter in Sweden as it is permanently dark and gloomy.

    1. Thank you! Yes I particularly love my Fimo clay animals and the little matchbox puzzles. People know I collect them so are always giving me them as gifts!
