Treasure Shelf

I'm still slowly working on that wall....this is what I have below the baby dresses from last weeks post.


I found a wood shelf at Goodwill with a horrible design on the top. DH sawed it off, I painted it white and it sits on top of a small bookcase full of my quilting books. If I can find a new place for the books I'll fill the shelves up with treasures or I'll just cover the books up with a pretty piece of cloth.



A girl can never have too many mother of pearl buttons, lace and rhinestones...



This is the bottle that I unearthed just a very short distance from our house in a very old farm dump along with an old French Postcard.


I LOVE this old lilac chocolate box. It's one of my favorite treasures.

An assortment of treasures, I still need to find a little white feather to put in the old ink bottle...






A very old trade card for Garland Stoves and Ranges. On the back is a picture of an old cast iron stove. The front reads "Where the Wild Flowers Grows", an old millinery flower and some rhinestone mesh.








Thanks for stopping!
