Just come off the production line!

I just finished these after so many months collecting dust, red dust I might add!Everything on my verandahs are covered in that horrible red dust!

I lined this with remnants from a child's velvet dress, and on the lid, some pretty paper.I seem to have a theme this time round, lots of this aqua around!

I finally lined these drawer 'trinket' boxes, handy for jewellery, keepsakes etc...
I had started them, and just never found my way back till now.It takes 'the sale of all sales' to finally let them shine! Actually, Im really happy with them, and just quietly, if they dont sell, they may just find their way into my home!

I forgot to take after photos of this bookcase until I had filled the shelves!But you get the idea, the panel on the bottom, I placed a piece of wallpaper from my stash.You might not be able to see, but there is a lid that lifts up,for storing blankets, pillows and the like!
Ok, back to work, my boss is a slavedriver!


  1. The treasure boxes are really nice!! What a great idea... So sorry to hear of all the red dust. That must be a diffucult thing to clean up!!

  2. Hi Sue :)
    Really love the box makeovers! Just beautiful.
    I could really use a box/shelf like yours at my place for Lego!
    I can remember the red dust storm we had in Melbourne just before the Ash Wednesday fires. Boy - that dates me doesn't it!
    The dust was impossible!!
    Good luck clearing it all away.
