You're not going to believe this....

but I actually MADE something!!!
My goodness...it's been so long ~  
Well, I can't show up empty handed to Lisa's house.....
So I thought I'd make her a little treasure box ~
plus I wanted to make Ann one too!

I had two wooden boxes from the craft store...
spray painted them a pretty ivory color...
added a little sheet music and copies of old photos.
I used my distressed ink brushed corduroy brown to
add an aged patina to all the papers.





A couple of weeks ago I found this rose trim on clearance at Hob Lob....
it's very white so I needed to add a little age to it quickly ~



With a little brown ink and a make up sponge
it ended up having the wonderful old look I love ~





My two boxes!!
Now to fill them both with treasures I think they'll both love :)


 
I'm getting my bags packed to leave Thursday morning....EEEEK!

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday sweet friends!!!
hugs and love,
Dawn

Hi Dearest Dawn,
Ohhh your boxes are absolutely gorgeous and I'm sure will be treasured by Lisa and Ann. You are such a talanted girlie, it's always a treat to see your beautiful creations.
It has been sooooo lovely to chat,on your mobile, with you and Lisa while you were en route back to Lisa's home after your visit to The Tin Rabbit. You sound as if you both have had a FUNtastic time and certainly something to cherish and remember always. Wishing you a safe trip back to Georgia on Sunday.
Warmest best wishes
