I so love vintage graphics and ephemera. The Graphics Fairy is one of my favorite places to visit. If you sign up for their emails you get new graphics every day. The one I used for the metal box below however is not from them this one is from Pinterest if you visit me there you can snag if for yourself. The other projects do use clip art from The Graphics Fairy so you can get those as well.
I found this metal box with a glass lid in my stash of wonderful treasures. I had it for a long time and was waiting for just the right picture to place under that special glass. I love the look on the little girl's face. She is precious. The picture isn't very good I am still learning to use my camera, the glass is beveled and it really doesn't have any imperfections as the photos may present.
This box is a copper colored metal with green velvet lining. Once again I rummaged through my favorite saved graphics and made a collage of these to make up the top design all from The Graphics Fairy.
This week just seemed to be the week to work on small projects. I had this reproduction fishing creel for some time and decided this was the week to get it painted too. As you can see I choose a white paint and filled it with silk red roses. I thought it needed just a little something to make it extra special so I found a tag shaped wood piece and decoupaged an old post card graphic (once again from TGF) on it. I don't really want to sell this but duty calls or should I say my bills....anyways I love it . Old post cards art is so cool, maybe next week I do something more with them.
