I've been a busy little girl this week!

Pink Friday~ February 6
Be my Valentine
Won't you please join us at Make Mine Pink for a Valentine treat? I'm very excited to show off my newest creations, all available at
Rose Petals & Blooms!

I'm in love with vintage candy boxes! I discovered this sweet box, that long ago, was filled with chocolate confections... I added vintage cabbage Rose Barkcloth, 2 millinery floral sprays dating from 1940. Also, a creamy white rose, the edges of the box are decorated with vintage venice lace... I think it's definitely a treat for the eyes! lol...

Sweet Clare

I was inspired to create this adorable vanity lamp from the old cottage dressers of the past....
As I hand crafted her from clay and wood, she began to take on her own sweet personality, and I named her Clare...
She is adorned with vintage drawer pulls, and turned legs. The framed cabbage roses, french perfume bottle and sweet dresser tray are created from clay! I love the top drawer, leaving it opened a bit with a piece of vintage lace gives this little gem oodles of character~
The shade was discovered in a little antique shop, just in her wire form.. I covered the shade in the softest pale pink chiffon with white chiffon inside. She is topped with fabric roses from the same chiffon and sweet ruffles dance along her edge..
.

I'm finishing another vintage candy box today, and will also be adding gorgeous 3D german Valentine cards dating from 1900 in other creations throughout the weekend~
