Giving Old Life to New Things

One of my favorite things to do is find a diamond in the rough.
This vintage jewelry box was such fun to adorn with unique papers and vintage flowers.
This is how the top of the box turned out. It has hand made vintage flowers and vintage sheet music.
It has a pretty new lining and red velvet drawers.
The top layer is filled with a mix of vintage trims, millinery flowers, bits of vintage charms, vintage buttons and so much more.
Here is a close up of some of the goodies.
The next section is filled with vintage lace and a glass bottle full of old pearls, charms, glitz and sparkle.
Next is a mix of tea dyed tags tied with a pretty vintage crystal, more layers of lace and trims and pretty ephemera. The bottom drawer is full of buttons, papers and unique pictures. This beautiful treasure along with several others will be available this Friday, April 17th for Pink Friday and "Keeping it Green."
