A purse from my collection, lace and other pretty things.
Another purse and more pretty things. I put a ring on the left hand glove and a button and pearl pin on the right glove to represent a ring.
It hangs above the fireplace in my living room.
I painted out the ugly green tiles around the firebox with primer so still need to finish it. Ill try my hand at faux marble (someday). The fireplace doesnt work so I have candles in the firebox that look fabulous when lit at night.

I created this shadow box to display a lot of my favorite things; beaded purses, lace, vintage jewelry & old watches. My husband built the box for behind the picture frame and my framing friend helped put it all together.
