Been on a Box Roll

Hi Friends
Hope your new week is off to a good start.

It seems my creating goes in directions of it's own most of the time.
I get on a roll with a certain surface and that just takes over.

Recently it's been boxes.

All sorts of boxes to decorate and paint filling  the shelves in my shop.

Here's a few past and the latest.








 I also found another vintage glove box.
This one is square and rare to find in this shape.
It will be a gift filled with a few goodies.


Hand Painted light pink with added vintage lace.

On the inside lid a hidden vintage surprise.

Lace and trims line the bottom,

and more lace all around the sides.


Now I'm moving on in another direction.

That's how my creating seems to roll.

I never know what, where or when something is going to inspire.

Like a new family direction and new chapter of life,
 has me creating a home office for my best guy.
Post and pics to come soon!



Thanks for stopping by and also for inspiring me when I visit you.

Have a wonderful week.

Such beautiful and lovely creations and the colors are so soft and tranquil.
You must receive such joy in making these treasures. I know just how you feel about getting on a roll with a certain project. I did that with wreaths for the longest time and enjoyed it so much, then I moved on to something else!
I enjoyed reading your comment this morning and thank you for adding such light to my days!
Warmest Hugs and wishes for a beautiful Monday~

I just can't pick a favorite one here...they are all awesome. I am intrigued with this male home office...I can't wait to see what you come up with. Hope you have a great week there. Got flooding all around us here, but we are doing ok. No standing water anywhere and might even begin picking green beans this weekend!

Createology said...

My dear your beautiful boxes are such an inspiration. I attended a small Vintage Fair this Saturday and they did have some of the old long glove and square hanky boxes in original condition...the prices were outrageous at $25 each. Of course they did not sell while I was there. Looking forward to your next direction of Creative Bliss...
