I've been a little busy . . .

I finished up my treasure box for Heather's "Junque in My Trunk" swap tonight!!! My treasure box is headed to Alice of Romantic Thoughts and I just so hope that she likes what I've gathered for her!!! Here's a peek at the package and it's all ready to mail out tomorrow ~

I finished a baby shoe pincushion today to go to the antique store . . . I just love this little girl!!




Can you tell I'm really loving the Macro setting on my camera?!


A little spice bottle that had no lid, filled with mother of pearl buttons and topped with a cork that I aged. I used matte gel medium on the back of this vintage label that I printed from my computer. A snippet of old lace and a piece from an old rhinestone earring (thank you Vikki!!) finishes this small treasure off!



Thank you so much for always leaving me the sweetest comments. I just love posting, sharing what I'm making or doing and love visiting your blogs as well. I'm sorry I don't get to reply to all of your comments but please know how much I appreciate your visit and taking the time to say a few words.

Wishing each of you a very happy Monday!! xxoo, Dawn

dawn, your creations are like treasures from another century.
two weekends ago i was visiting wonderful little town called Porvoo and visited few antique shops in there. i found a beautiful beautiful lace covered 1800th century bag, or i feel actually that the bag found me, since i felt it wanted that i would purchase it. i will write more about my finding, when i next update my blog.

The bottle is divine! Love that you put a bell on the baby shoe! It reminds me of a story grandmother told about how she used bells on the shoes of her toddlers to keep up with them around the farm.

I am so far behind....I love the shoes....what a wonderful Idea. We have a craft day at our church each October, would you mind if I gave this a try? I couldn't do them like yours, but we all love baby shoes. I don't have the settings on my camera that you do, your pictures are beautiful, I think I say this every time.
Hugs, Mary
