An Altered Suitcase, Sweet Violets

I just finished this suitcase, painted Duck Egg and decoupaged with various Violet-themed ephemera.  These can be used for decorative storage or for wedding decor to hold wedding cards, or even as a prop for photography.

The One That Got Away

Have you ever found an item that you love, and for one reason or another you didn't buy it, and it haunts you because you can't find another?  That's the case for me with this beautiful vintage coffee can.  I love the graphics, love the shade of blue.  I bid on it on an online auction, intending to bid at the last minute, and FORGOT ABOUT IT! I can't seem to find another.  If you ever find one of these, I'd love to know.

Old Chifferobe Door Mirror

This old mirrored door was the only thing salvageable from an old chifferobe.  I painted it duck egg blue, added another knob directly across from the one on the right, and a sawtooth hanger on the back.  This mirror can be hung on a wall or propped on a shelf.  I would use the knobs to hang necklaces.
