Jewellery Box

 It's been a very, very long time since I last blogged. Over a year in fact!! Just been busy and, alright, I keep forgeting to blog :\  Anyway, I thought I'd share a jewellery box I made for my daughter, Georgia's 10th birthday, which was yesterday (21st March). My dear mum-in-law gave me a HEAP of lace, fabric, ribbon and 'stuff' after cleaning out her cupboard. Lucky me!!! :D One thing that was included was, a wooden box just perfect for a little girl's jewellery box! I set to work sanding and painting. It also came with some beautiful mauve satin and wadding for cushioning the interior. I happened to have the exact match of paint as the satin. It is the same colour as our eldest daughter's (Erin) room at present. I had some lovely flowers and pearls and trinkets to adorn it with. I also found in the stash, some trim that matched the colour as well as some lace!! It came together so easily! I really enjoyed making this for her. I had to tell Georgia it was for Nan, as I couldn't get it finished in time if I had of waited for her to not be around. (Just a little white lie!) On her birthday, Georgia opened her present, she gasped and glared at me, so funny! She loves it, which is all that matters!

I am really happy with how this turned out! I didn't go and buy anything, I just used what I had :) I made a hat pin to go inside, although I'm not sure if this was a good idea! lol
I will be uploading some more pics of other stuff I have done/altered/destroyed (lol) tomorrow.

  1. I love how your jewellery book has turned out. I have a box, which I've been meaning to alter for ages, most likely with paper, rather than material, as it isn't for jewellery, I think it use to hold 'posh' cutlery! I just know whatever I do, it won't look the way I see it in my head!
    Ps. Thank you for calling into my blog!

  2. Thankyou Sarah :D
