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.

Santa Baby...

I guess we all know that it will be
before we know it.

So when I found these sweet little St. Nick charms
I thought they would be fun to put on a chain for a necklace.
Or hang them from the tree or just for decor.

Come by the Etsy Shop

for a peek.

And a couple of new blinged key pendants, too.

I think you've probably been really good this year!!

love ya,

"Falling" for some fun new pieces...

My jewelry gene has been activated this week!
I have some new elements I've been working with.
Some found vintage jewelry pieces
 that were waiting to take the spotlight.

Brass engraved tags,
some sparkle, old keys and charms,
added to pearls and mixed chains.

Come by and visit the Etsy Store or the Petite Boutique
for a better look.

Hope to see you tomorrow night for
 Vintage Inspiration Friday!

Tag...You're It!

I think I'm addicted to this.
Digging in my stash to find what to put together.

These little brass tags are really so much fun to add to the pendant.
Here are two more...

Check out
when you have a minute if you're interested.

Thanks for indulging me!

The Royal Treatment Give Away

You may be thinking,

"Didn't she just have a give-away?"

Well, yes, I did.

But I'm going to start doing smaller ones frequently
so I can share some wonderful finds and talent.


Last year I fell in love with these
oh so sweet, handmade,
and I wanted to share one with you.
Just 'cause I love you all so much!

I thought you might enjoy having
The Royal Treatment.

With one of my favorite crowns,
adorned with vintage bling,
 pearls, and some glitz.

Here I have it on a candle holder as a candle cloche.
I've used mine in so many vignettes for every season.

The give away includes Italian note cards,

and my favorite Gardenia goat's milk soap

This is my sweet friend Kenda,
the gal behind the crowns

And these are from her lovely space
The French Rose
at Leola's in Ozark.

Kenda creates her crowns
in pink, blue, gold and silver,
each with her signature
 vintage jewelry bling.

So if you are ever in Southwest Missouri
be sure to stop by and say Hello.

I'm so excited to share this
 Give Away with all of you!
So leave a comment on this post,
 join as a follower if you haven't yet,
and for extra entries,
 grab the Give-Away button,
then let me know if you post on your blog
 about the Give Away.

And as a Bonus,
 I'll be having a second special giveaway
for my lovely friends...
who have me on their blog rolls.

Just let me know so I can enter you.
April 15 is the deadline.

Have a wonderful Easter Week.
