This beauty opens to 3 sections, and I was thrilled that it still had its key. What a glorious deep Turquoise color, and I love that it has a mirror, rather than just a satin insert.
The ubiquitous globe. Although there's a plethora of choices on Ebay and Etsy, in its defense, I didn't find one on a wire stand. This one's made by Cram, from 1967.
I really don't know if this is terribly vintage or not, but I loved the colors, bones and weight of this box. If it doesn't meet the 20-year vintage rule of Etsy, I may just sell it here on the blog.
I love this piece. Great shape, size, pattern, and feet! Despite the fact that brass is making a comeback, I bought this solely with the purpose of giving it the chalk paint treatment, and distressing the raised pattern.
I'll show the results on a later post.
This fabulous gem has chalk paint written all over it. I've been on the prowl for more little jewelry boxes and spice cabinets to chalk paint, after I scored This and This.
Dontcha just love the caned doors and little drawers with wooden knobs? The inside has retro orange-y gold velvet interior. To paint or not to paint the cane,
that is the question.
I have my work cut out for me on this too.
Sometime soon, I will be creating a page on this blog to sell vintage items, some found and others from my personal collection. They will, in most cases, be items which don't meet Etsy's 20-year-old cutoff, but that I deem to be quality treasures. And rather than list them on Ebay, where I could potentially have to re-list,
I'll just add them to my blog instead.
Hope you're having a lovely Spring day! Mine's a sublime blustery Winnie-the-Pooh day.
