Vintage Hat Boxes ~ Pretty Storage


"Garland Of Old Fashioned Roses" Box

Wallpaper Roses Box


This post is all about pretty storage.
Every year when the Christmas season is over and all the decorations have been taken down and put away......  I begin my "spring" cleaning.  
I have to be organized in order to function.  A place for everything and everything in it's place.
I like "pretty" storage vs your average plastic storage box.  I was online looking for pretty storage solutions and of course....  the ones I like were really expensive.  Not wanting to spend that kind of money on "storage" I decided to make my own.
I went to a sale a few months ago and purchased a random bunch of old hat boxes.  Perfect for storage.  I wanted a cohesive look so I decided to alter them using paint and decoupage.  I painted the outside and lid of each box using left over craft paint......  then decoupaged the inside (box and lid).  I used antique sheet music, vintage wall paper, lace and ephemera.  I hand stamped the ballerina and ballet shoes.
They are perfect to store my collection of vintage ballet shoes and costumes.
This is my first set.  I've become obsessed.  I'm working on the other hat boxes and decided to do some shoe boxes and jars, too. 


Keeping everyone effected by the winter storm in my prayers.
Have a great week!
Blessings,
Elizabeth

Divine - Ruffles, Lace and Ribbonwork












Who doesn't love rows of ruffles, old lace and antique ribbonwork!
Here are some new additions to my ever growing collection of vintage pillows, pin cushion dolls and hankie holders.
They have the most beautiful ribbonwork, 
 Each one is a little work of art.

Wishing everyone a wonderful year.
Happy 2016!

Blessings.

Happy Thanksgiving & Pretty Floral Pumpkins






Sharing some handmade pumpkins I made last year using vintage fabrics, hand dyed laces and old rhinestone jewelry.

 I have so much to be thankful for. 
I am so grateful and count my blessings each and every day.
I praise the Lord for all that he has given me.

Wishing everyone a happy 
and safe 
Thanksgiving!

Pink Princess Dress ~ Vintage Tulle






 Vintage Pink Princess Dress

Vintage tulle dresses.....  one of my favorite things in the whole world.  
I absolutely love them!
I have a large collection of vintage 40's and 50's prom dresses.  All in pastel colors.  They remind me of cotton candy and sherbet ice cream.
These dresses are soooooo beautiful.  Most are hand made and one of a kind.  Frilly works of art.
This one is especially pretty.... with layers and layers of tulle ruffles, bunches of white millinery flowers and of course.....  it's Pink!
I love it and hope you do, too!

Have a lovely day!
Elizabeth
