Anyway, I picked up these little vintage Lucite boxes at an estate sale. Six of them, yellowed to perfection in their own little wire rack. I imagine they were used in the MR. of the home's workshop for little do-dads and what-nots.
I had these beautiful vintage look tickets that I was waiting to use on just the right project...and voila~
A little modge podge and they're all set for eternity...
I plan on adding knobs to the covers like the one you see here...
Won't this be a great addition to someone's craft room? I think this will land in my rented space at WCS or perhaps in my soon to open Etsy Shop.
I found this basket at the Christmas Tree Shop. Not loving the Rooster, but the basket has great bones.
Rusty looking wire with wooden handles...I could see the French in it, just begging to come out!
I removed the
yucky lovely rooster and added an antique door plate, some vintage lace in the center of it, with a Tim Holtz number decal to finish it off
I then strung some vintage lace all around the inside and tied it on with some string.
I think she looks and feels better now, don't you?
Lastly, (and I apologize about the blurriness of this photo) I had this cool wall hanger. The glass door knob is beautiful and the whole piece is quite heavy, but I just wasn't loving the blue....
So, I pulled out a vintage index book I picked up (photos of that later) and decoupaged the heck out of this little sweetie! What do you think?
So... I hope with my vintage Lucite find, embellishing the basket with an antique door plate, and dressing the little sweetheart above in vintage papers, I can safely and happily link up to Vintage Inspiration Friday over at Common Ground. (for my second time joining the party) Thanks for hosting Debra!
