Pure Romance

Repurposed cigar boxes are the rage in mixed media
today and this particular one was a real "find." This
all wood box provided the perfect palette to
create a 40s-style piece that was filled with
romance.

Remember old movies that captured the days of
long ocean journeys, steamer trunks, and telegrams?
Well, this was the era that was captured in this
mixed media piece.



It is embellished with many finds, including vintage
jewelry.

You have such great ideas !
I want you to know you inspired me .
Every year I make an ornament for my grandchildren and grand neices and nephews, this year I made tag ornaments, they turned out really pretty, and helped use up a lot of tid-bits I had been saving forever . Thanks for your inspiration !

What a beautifully decorated box Cindy. You always, always come up with the most perfect ideas. I don't know how you dream them up.
I have decorated a cigar box once but they are so hard to get hold of here.

When I get back on my blog I will be showing it off to everyone. Wanted to say hi and I have missed you. Will be sending you a personal message this evening. This is the first time I have been on the internet in what seems to be months!!
