French Inspired Keepsake Boxes

Welcome all week long to visit Etsy Cottage Style Blog and the many creative happenings from participants studios called
 

I've also had some fun finishing altered art keepsake boxes with a little French inspiration.
 
 Each has a bit of Paris chic style with Eiffel Tower, crown, Fleur Di Li's and French postage.
 
 All are accented with my pink cottage roses.
Made from wood and 4" square,
 
 they have glass like knobs on the lid and perfect to hold
 
sweet little treasures,
 
jewelry or a special gift.
Each a bit different
 
with accents in aqua,
 
soft gray and chic black.
And, of course, pink roses!
 
This vintage treasure was so much fun to redesign
 
I shared it last week, created when it was snowing.
 
 What a difference a week makes.
 
We are now warmed up and tomorrow predicted to be in the
 
upper 70's.
 
All these little pretties are now filling the shelves in my etsy shoppe.
 
Thank you for stopping by,
 
 and while your browsing,
 
 stop by ECS to see what else is coming from the cottage craft room.
See you soon.
 
Have a blessed day.

I love the way you decorated the vintage glove box. I have a soft spot for satin dresser boxes and have a huge collection I use to store the little "pretties" in my art room. Well done!

Celeste, Your boxes are beautiful! I guess the snowy weather you had was a blessing in disguise, so you had time to create! It's still in the single digits here, and getting colder. Linda
