TUSAL & Winter Box & Up for the Challenge

I'm posting from DH's computer because mine is still at the puter Dr. I was careless and acquired a scam program I couldn't get rid of so off he went to someone more qualified to cure him.

I've joined the TUSAL. I must find a new container as my last one is full, full, full. However I'll have a good start by January 4, 2011.

I've finished the top and sides of Winter Box but no pictures as my camera does not interface with DH's computer.
