New listings for sale...

... if you are in the Greensboro area {or if not, shipping is available} visit the facebook page  The Original Made by Hands in the Triad 
to find the perfect trinket box / treasure chest for you or as a gift.  It is a "closed group"  but the administrator will process requests to join within a reasonable time frame.
 I have listed five boxes with photos and prices. All boxes are one of a kind using found objects so cannot be duplicated.
If you have seen an item on previous post here that you are interested in, please let me know.

Adding some light...

.. and color to a rainy Monday morning.  This photo was taken when wandering Jen's garden in Indianapolis.

Hope your day is sunny & bright.

A small garage sale find...

... begging to be altered.  This small wooden box was a find last weekend.  Liked the unique notch cut tab - perfect to add a knob made from a vintage button. Only 3" tall and that includes the
salvaged knobs from an old piece of furniture used as the feet.  It is 4" wide and 3" deep.  All these odds and ends just seemed to fit on it - citra solv papers, slide frame altered with alcohol ink, small metal piece colored with alcohol ink and a vintage button for a knob.

Some days...

... you have to create your own sunshine.

Today weather felt like fall rather than spring.  Not feeling focused enough for other projects so playing with citra solv creations.

A beautiful, sunny Sunday morning...

Every dream fulfilled...

... begins with a simple wish.
Another completed box large enough to hold your wishes.  It measures about 6-1/2" tall {counting antique handle on top}, 11" long {including handles colored with
alcohol ink} and 5" wide.  The feet are scrabble tile trays.  All painted with luminair paint and stencil on top is of a dandelion.
 Enclosed in jars inside are dandelion wishes.
Here is wishing you a grand day !!!
