A Darling Vintage Jewelry Holder...


 Hi Sweet Friends,

Hope all of you are having
a good week so far.
I have been doing a bit of
resting lately as I have a lot
of pain in my right hip. I have
Bursitis in the hip and if you
have ever experienced the
pain from bursitis you will
understand. Prolonged walking
makes it more painful. I did
have a cortisone shot in my
hip about 4 weeks ago but
it wore off quickly.

Ahh well enough about that!!

I am showing you something
that I bought at an estate sale
a while ago. It is a revolving/
tilting wooden picture frame,
which sits on a weighted stand
of rather hefty metal. The inner
frame that turns over was rather
wobbly.  I have had it on my work
table for awhile wondering how to
bring it to life once again. On the same
table I have a couple of baskets with
lovely doilies...and the thought came to me
to  incorporate the lace with this frame.
I used an automatic staple gun to attach
the doily, added some bits and bobs
and Viola'!!

I have placed it in my Antique booth now....
Don't you think it would look darling
on someones vanity or dresser?


I chose not to paint it as the
wood has a glint of gold here
and there. The wood is really beautiful.
and the pictures do not give it justice
to it's beauty. It looks to me like it
is from the 1920's or 30's...what do you
think??

Tell me what your up to this week....
I love your comments and visits so much!!
I look forward to hearing for you. :)

Love and Blessings to All,

Susan
