sneak peek!

sneak peaks of my newest upcycled/repurposed jewelry storage and display.  they’re one of a kind (in more ways than one, though obviously as happily-stumbled-upon thrift store finds, i can’t make more than one!)

you got your bowl o’ bugs made from a silver plate bowl that i decoupaged with a nice bright grass background and topped with reproductions of neato dragonfly, beatle, and bee stamps from around the world.  bonus feature (not shown in photo): it comes with a plastic bowl insert so you could even serve food in it! creep out your friends!  horrify your mother in law!

also pictured is a former soap dish that i decoupaged a reproduction vintage map into and then added the quote from Tolkien: “not all those who wander are lost” and a sweet little bird in flight.  i can imagine this being the perfect place for his jewelry: just the right size for a watch and some cufflinks.  the bowl is copper-plated and sits on four little feet like an old claw-foot bathtub.  i was very excited to find it at the thrift store and give it a new  life.  collecting cool quotes is yet another favorite pasttime of mine, so i thought i’d bring that aspect of me into this creation.

they’ll be up at my etsy store soon with the rest of the where to put it all collection!  i just need to get some good sunshine so i can take some rockin’ photos.
