Just in time for back to school, our Friday Find this week is my childhood lunch box, Holly Hobbie. I bet if you take a minute to think about it you can remember that favorite style lunchbox that you had to have. For me it was one of my best back to school purchases, my super cool lunchbox. The lunchbox can be traced back to 1935 when Geuder, Paeschke & Frey produced the first licensed character lunchbox with Mickey Mouse on it. Interested in the history of the metal lunch box read more. So how can this iconic piece of metal work into your room design? I have hung a couple of vintage lunchboxes on play room walls, arranged them on shelves in retro inspired kitchens and even put them in kids bedrooms (usually a western or space pattern with the occasional Snoopy round top). They are especially fun if they come with a history to tell about.
Here she is and notice that Adore Your Place color scheme, very funny. If you haven’t seen enough stop by the Lunch Box Museum.
