"I'm so glad we've had this time together".....

Isn't it pretty? There are lots of pretty things out there, some we have for a really long time, others a short time.
(make sure you click on the pics to get the pretty details)

I purchased this gorgeous decadent french jewelry box from a lovely seller on Etsy.....had to have it. The inside was in awfully poor shape, but I knew I'd had fun reviving it..and I think I did.

I added the green velvet and the trims and wallpaper to the inside, whereas before that it was just either wood or cardboard.....now I've put her in my Etsy shop, all gussied up. It makes for a fantastic shadowbox effect with your favorite items inside.
It's truly swoon worthy, but it's time to  move on to a new home...and if it takes awhile, that's o.k. with me ~wink~

Gail this is so amazing!
I love the green velvet lining.
You have put so much into it to bring it back to life. I would hate to see it go.
I hope you get to enjoy her for a bit before she sells.
