A Repurposed Wood Box

I repurposed this old wood box by painting and distressing it, adding some pretty paper and a lovely image from The Graphics Fairy, a sweet little girl with a darling calf, then bonding a vintage finding to the front. It can be used to store keepsakes, vintage linens, etc.

Embellished Bottles

I've been working on some embellished bottles.  I did an Easter bottle with a vintage French postcard image, lace and jewelry findings (front and back view shown), and a "Jeanie" bottle, which has sheet music of "Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair", vintage topaz jewelry findings and lace.

Tiny Collectibles

Thought I'd post a pic of some small things I have collected - a tiny metal vase with shell flowers, a petite chalkware frame, tiny cup, pink jeweled box, a tiny shaker that I use for stickpins, and a tramp art tin chair....
