Time-Worn ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Trinket Box...

As I'm cleaning out my nooks & crannies - I've found yet another ViNtaGe Box -  that I dearly LoVe...

A perfect time of year to display this!!!
Rusty burnt oranges - sooooo yummy... 
The box is original - "old tattered paper"... 




I remembering netting this at Hunt & Gather in Minnesota... Such a FaB Store!!!  The box has such character with all it's imperfections...  (click on pic to enlarge...)




Smaller-sized trinket boxes are just great for tossing in a little bit of this and that...


***************
Have a great summer weekend...
I'm headed out to Shop Kane County Flea!*!*!

  2. I love this one most of all! Is it painted or velvet? I just started a collection of velvet boxes and am having a ball!
    As always, your stuff makes me drool. Love it!
