etsy purchases

I just bought a new jewelry box from one fo my Arts In Rhode Island members. Karen of makes AMAZING found object art and functional boxes. I saw this one and knew it would look perfect in my bathroom to hold all my jewelry.

She calls it: "The Birds and the Bees." Topped with vintage stamps from a local "seed" producer, these stamps were used to label seed packets, produce, and other items made at a local farm stand here in RI. Inside, the jewelry box is lined with botanical prints from an old calendar and the inside top is upholstered in a cotton fabric sunflower print -- making a perfect spot to clip pins, earrings, etc. The bee is an old costume jewelry piece and the bird is a vintage ivory button.
