Mimi & Musette Bureau Trinket Trunk Assembalge

This was a special order for a special little person but I wanted to share it with you. I'm so pleased with the way it turned out.
It's a 2 compartment trunk with several techniques used. I even found an antique Punch and Judy Theater ad clipping from an antique magazine I added inside...the cost was 10 cents...really!
The bottom trunk is waxed and painted book print encased in bees wax. I love the soft feature of bees wax. This item is more like a collage assemblage.
I also added Swarovski crystals in 2 sizes here and there for a bit of magical twinkle.
The tiny cherries are clay created just for this trunk with a butchered bow.
I do have a question for anyone dropping by; I can't find any more of this style box anywhere! Does anyone know where I might find them? I love the rolled rim.
Better many things to work on!
Have a wonderful day everybody!

Pepper Berry Love Potion #16 Bureau Trinket Trunk

Oh soo fun to create are my Bureau Trinket Trunks! This one is called Love Potion #16.

This petite trunk is created from a lovely variety of items including: hard wood turned compartments, hand crafted Pepper Berries on copper wires (by me), vintage photo copy, antique golden cuff link, painted vintage lace, porcelain knob, wooden disc with the number 16, cotton leaves, wooden pedestal and marble base. The whole creation is gently encased in fragrant beeswax for a soft artful display.
This trunk will be added to the windlewood collection tomorrow.

Make sure that you sign up for my newsletter to receive my updates! I have a coupon ready to go!
Enjoy, my friends!

My Sunny Work Space

Welcome to my sunny work spaces! I love being able to peek out the window and see the out door activity!
Here's just a small display of things that I enjoy, a fun little tin toy iron.
This is just one of my curvy inspirational items and a comfy rest when needed.
I've been accused of having a ribbon thing...uhh...yeh..I think you could say that. :)
I'm pleased to say that I've added the lovely Midori ribbon to my collection! Wait till you see that! I'm planning stockings around it.

Ohhh by the way...I'm planning on starting giveaways and will be contacting everybody on my mailing list to let them know when and for what. Be sure to sign up for it in the black box if you haven't already! I will also be sending occasional special offers and coupons so don't miss any of it!
Take care!
