Originally this box was a silverware box that Dean and I brought back to life. It was brown and with a velvet purple liner inside. PURPLE? not for me. We took out the velvet liner , sand it and re-painted with a coat of primer and two coats of white paint. Finished with an applique' just for the usual extra cottage touch.
The Christmas white trees, my favorite. I love the silver and white together, easy project. Hot glue gun to attach the silver balls and lots of white glue to attach the German glass glitter. If you are working on your dining room table like me, yes I do have a huge workshop but it's already full of projects! So, if you are working on your dining room table and using German glass glitter, remember it's real glass, cover the table with plastic and I use a large shoe box so you can collect the left over glitter and re use it.
More gluing, this time for the Vintage Whiteballs I used decoupage glue for the glitter drops and a two part epoxy to glue the rhinestones, and finished them with lace.
I have few ideas for this millinery leaves, oh..they are velvet and pure white, the truth they are to beautiful to glue or glitter up. And I am planning to glitter up this creamy white cabbage rose too.
No plans for the white pearls, they are always pretty just the way they are.
Never bought snow flakes before, I am hooked now. I have been using it for the "Vintage Jars".
Never enough white lace, I use it to embellish the soldered bottles, charms, jars.
I filled the Vintage Jar with some of the snow flakes, a white tree glittered up, a guardian angel girl and each jar that I put together has a different word for the soldered bubble "hope", "vintage", "sweet".
There is still room in the jar to add personal messages too.
Now, how am I going to close the box?
Thank you to Kathleen for hosting another "bellissimo" White Wednesday.

Thank you June for been in blogland to keep us smile and for following all my progress. Enjoy Please stop by her amazing blog "laughingwithangels.blogspot.com"
We played Monopoly Saturday to keep Raffaele entertained.( Swine flu) Of course I got the camera out, Alan said: "Are you going to blog this?" so he tryies to cover the board. Creepy, looks like he is missing one finger!
Kay had a "Chocolate chip pumpkin muffin" recipe on one of her recent posts , sounded delizioso, but my baking skills are not the best.
Any way not a good day for us, I was suppose to load up the truck and go down to Chula Vista for the Vintage Vixen Vendor Sale. Raffaele, my 13 year old was getting a cold a couple of days ago, in the middle of the night is temperature got pretty high. Swine Flue of course is the first thing we think of...
Dean takes Raffaele to the Doc. first thing this morning, what do I do....BAKE Kay Ellen's muffins to keep my self busy.Well Raffaele has Swine Flue, il mio bimbo...but as soon as they got home the smell of fresh baked muffins put a smile on Raffaele's face. Thank you Kay Ellen
"Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Muffins"
3 cups of all purpose flour
2 cups of granulated sugar
2 teaspoons of baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 15oz canned pumpkin
2 cups of chocolate chips ( I did 1 cup of white and 1 cup of semisweet)
Thank you Kay Ellen, your peeks of the Barn Sale are Fantastico. Bloguettes stop by Kay's blog and say hi to her from me.
These are few of the signs and charms I have been working on and as some of you noticed I started selling on etsy. OK, it's time consuming and a lot of passion to be in etsy but I am going to give it a shot. I admire all those etsy artists that work on every detail to showcase their pieces.
I will be working on Christmas ornaments this week and I am honored to be part of the "Vintage Vendor Sale" this coming Saturday in Chula Vista/ East Lake
