As always I've found them at Mösi's and I got them for quite a while now, but never showed them off.
So here they are:
And since my beloved father in law also was a collector of vintage treasures, I got this breathtaking old wooden frame of him.
Last year I stumbled over two old boxes for sewing notions (I'm not quite sure if this is the right word for it...?), dated between late 1800 and early 1900. They where in good shape and I couldn't resist.
A pot of ASCP graphite was waiting and calling my name, so I finally gave in and used it gutsy on the bigger one of the boxes. The smaller one I painted in old ochre.
The light one is already sold but the graphite box is available on my DaWanda Shop.
And yeah, it feels good to be back on track!! ;)
Lovely post, and really cool old treasures.ReplyDelete

The sewing boxes are beautiful, I have a couple, never thought of painting them, also love the picture frame!ReplyDelete
Love that I have a new follower and I too will be your new follower, I love the tone on tone of your old, as patina of greys and cream along with the paler shades of white sing to me soulfully and your pieces would fit right in at home with my things of old.ReplyDelete
