Vintage Inspiration Friday# 20: Got some "Junk" in my Trunk

OK, I guess it's not junk
but I just had to say it!

I found this exquisite doll trunk a few years ago and used it for my jewelry display, but the trunk itself was, well... brownish-burgundy, and I felt that the wonderful damask mauve silk interior deserved something more feminine. I unearthed it from my garage last week and gave it about 4 coats of paint. The burgundy "bled" through, so now it's the palest shade of pink...just perfect!

I've been working on some Valentine things for my booth at Spring Creek, and bringing some of it into the decor this week. This little Paper Doll and hat box I found at Inspirational Home last year. I think we sort of look alike; she being muuuuch younger and maybe even more of a munchkin than me.(?)

I've been inspired by vintage ladies' pocketwatches and wristwatches,
so I decided to do my own take on them.
These are new battery operated watch faces
combined with charms and blinged keys.

I have a few Eiffel Tower charms added in,
and of course there are medals and crucifixes,
hearts, and keys.

even a birdie or two for Spring!

Come by and see what's there for Valentine's Day.
You can email me for a special made-for-you piece.
