Some vintage treasures . . .

Hello friends! 
Can you believe the year is almost over?
We put away most of the Christmas decorations today, including the tree (sigh), but it needed to go; it was very dry.  I got all of the ornaments put away, purged and organized.

Hubs [okay, he doesn't like to be called hubby or hubs . . . and husband sounds too formal . . . any ideas? . . . or maybe I'll just call him Kevin] . . .  Kevin and I have been busy after Christmas antique shopping and picking up some vintage treasures I'm using for crafting. I'm working on some unique Christmas shadowboxes and ornaments. (I can't believe I'm still in the Christmas crafting mode). 

 This is a large (24"x28"x6") antique gilt frame shadowbox with original glass. I have listed it for sale on craigslist to, hopefully, avoid shipping it.

If I get some of the ornaments done, I'll add them to my etsy sale. I'm having a 15% off sale on everything in my etsy store through New Year's Eve, and I'll be adding some of my left over items from our Christmas Winter Market. 

Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your comments on the shadowbox.
Have a safe and Happy New Year's Eve!

  1. I love, LOVE this whole idea. And your finished treasure 'box' is awesome, just plain awesome. [I also like to peruse the antique mall here in town]

    My Show n Tell Link---where it's kinda fodder for the National Enquirer Tabloids. Do stop by if you can, I'd love your opinion.

    Happy New Year

  2. Hi Julie ... Your shadowbox is STUNNING! It's stuffed full of beautiful vintage treasures and would look gorgeous displayed ANYWHERE in ANYONE'S house! Some lucky person is going to be very happy when they come across this on Craigslist. Happy New Year! xox

  3. I think it is pretty cute. I would make a nice gift for someone going into a smaller place. They could have their vintage memories without all the storage.

  4. Hi Julie!
    I love all the little vintage Santas....and I'm glad to hear I'm not the only person itching to get back out there and hunt for new treasures this soon after Christmas-haha! My daughter, just yesterday, mentioned she was ready to go antique shopping. Ahh, music to my ears:)
    Well, hope you have a very Happy New Year!

  5. Great idea Julie, and I think you could do it with any theme. Thanks for the comment it was sweet of you, and it's 27 ;)
