DIY: Thrifted Vintage Wood and Metal Boxes

Found this Vintage Black Metal Toolbox and Vintage Wood Box with dividers on a recent thrift run. Wasn’t sure how exactly I was going to use until today.

Metal box holds my paints and the wood box now stores my artist pads and sketchbooks.

In love with these finds added to my art area.


COLLECTION: Vintage Locket Necklaces

Between the two of us, Lorie and I have many vintage lockets.  This weekend we snapped a few photos of them to share with you.   Some of the lockets are on a long chain and have a hidden clock inside.  Others are dainty and on short delicate strand.  One locket is nice, but layering a few pieces together is best.

DIY: Shadowbox with Vintage Frames

I’ve been collecting these great Vintage Eyeglasses for a while now.  Was trying to figure out the best way to display these cool frames and decided on this Shadowbox.

I found this rustic and distressed painted Grey shadowbox at TJ Maxx and the eyeglasses were all thrifted.

I simply used some sewing pins with a white tip to secure them in place.

VINTAGE: Betty Wallace Shops Lace Dress

We found this gorgeous Betty Wallace Lace dress recently. We are having trouble finding anything related to Betty Wallace Shops online but the style looks to be from the 20’s and is in great Vintage condition.

Does anyone have any info on “Betty Wallace Shops”?

Isn’t it gorgeous!

THRIFT HAUL: Cutest Vintage Owl, Clothing & Boots!

I try not to call myself an owl collector, but sometimes they seem to fall from the sky and into my shopping cart.  Isn’t this the cutest one yet?    He is a vintage eyeglass holder.   Unbelievable!   I’d like to introduce my new favorite…  He is here to stay!

I was able to find a few pretty summer dresses too.  This black disco style is such a great LBD (little black dress) to have on hand for a special occasion.  I also love the black detail on the floral one. This keeps it from being to sweet looking.

Also found are these great pair of Vintage Men’s, Adams Boot Co. boots.   The color & wear of the leather is really gorgeous and I know just who to gift them to.  (You’re one lucky brother!)

Last but not least are these great short sleeve tops, Vintage leather belt and a great pair of vintage jeans….  you can just never go wrong with vintage bootcut jeans!!!
