Vintage at Artful Times

 Hello hope you having a lovely Bank Holiday weekend in the UK. The weather has been kind to sunny Suffolk but I have a stinker of a cold :( so feeling sorry for myself today time to catch up with blogging I think. Over at Artful Times Neet and Von are asking for Vintage projects whoop whoop my fav style ever. Do take a look at their projects they really are lovely. Von is also taking a break so enjoy it Von we will miss you. X
I have just finished this jewellery box for my DIL birthday which is today (I will miss the BBQ as I feel so horrible :(ugh)
I painted it duck egg blue and rubbed in some metallic rub to distress it and stamped onto it. The feet are wooden beads that I have painted gold and attached. The centre heart is from a card I had so pretty its perfect for the box.. The inside has also been painted and distressed and lined with handmade paper. The whole box has been finished with a seal. I bought a piece of jewellery to pop inside and the Diamond will take over today for me. Thanks for looking and taking time to comment. Enjoy your day. Hugs Sandra XXX PS sorry about the photo you can see my fingers in the top LOL.

Such an adorable box Sandra. Sorry you don't feel well enough to go to the Barbie--I have the same bug as yours I think and don't feel like doing anything.

Take care

Love Chrissie x
