I bet you have guessed my motto if one is good, many is very good, not to be confused with my mantra a place for everything, and everything in its place. Together those 2 ideas could change it all... So with that said, my newest obsession, vintage jewelry boxes.. It is fun for me that I find them often, they are mostly in soft colors, always under $10, usually less and there are lots of different styles. My mom has had one for as long as I can remember, which she still uses... I love them for holding just about everything. Naturally they can be used for the obvious, holding jewelry.... This little one with light blue satin lining is simple but still sweet. I bought it with the jewelry in it...
Here are a couple of pink ones that I have in my bedroom.
With all their great little cubbies they can help keep buttons, price tags, beads, trinkets and all those little treasures that would be more useful and tidy, separate and contained in their own little space!
I have sold several of these in the past, but I am keeping more these days as I must have, a place for everything, and everything in its place.
This sweet little blue case was one I found this weekend. It is just a little different with how the sides go out when the lid goes up. I was so surprised when I checked out Lisa's blog and she had also found the same case!! The difference was hers had a precious little dancing ballerina.. and mine didn't...well you can imagine my dismay.!!!!
Today I had a little outing with Sheila we went to the Goodwill Outlet... much like dumpster diving, but more people jumping in...naturally we had a terrific time... We found all sorts of great treasures. I found a cream jewelry case and offered it to Sheila since I have so many, it seemed like the friendly thing to do. A few minutes later... I found this ...
The lock is broken but that is an easy fix.
Oh my gosh!!! A ballerina with legs that dangle, it dances
and plays music!!! Just like Lisa's!!!
It has the prettiest pink velvet lining...
Look what I found when I opened this one!!!
