Silver Bella Treasure Box

I have gathered some bits of this and that for Silver Bella.
I found an old Lady Hamilton jewelry box at Goodwill to keep my pretties in. A decadent red lining and gold framed mirror. The pale pink crocheted purse reflected in the mirror will hold pencils, charcoal and Sharpies.Lots of little compartments for a crocheted goody here and a shiny pink bell there. How about a rhinestone pretzel? A few pages from a French grammar book and a Christmas card from the 30's.
A vintage card game called Dr. Quack and fluffy net flowers with rosy sherbet centers.
Ribbons and trims in all my favorite colors.
What will I pack for the snowy weather? I bought some powder pink gloves and a rose and white scarf to go with my green velvet coat, and a sparkly bit of vintage bling for my lapel. I haven't attended before so I will be a newby. I know there have been some swaps and a yahoo group going on but being computer challenged I did not participate. I have lots to learn but what fun I'm having in the process.
Joe is going with me and we are taking a few extra days to explore Omaha. I'll pack extra camera batteries too, I will have a lot to share when I return. My tool kit is packed and I am SO ready to go. Silver Bella or bust!

Have a sparkling Monday, P.
Pin It!

I know you're getting ready for Silver Bella, but I had to return the favor of Kreative Blogger. Your writing is music to my soul. Deb I wouldn't think you would have to nominate 6 more but I'll leave that up to you.
