I Never Tire of "Old Stuff"

The older the better and
If I can make something out of it then that's all the good.
I found I did not have the heart to discard, or even recycle, the amber bottles that
I received my fragrance oils in.
I kept tens and twenties of these sitting on the shelf waiting for a "project".
Last month I altered a few of them with antique silk velvet ruched roses and
Hammered spoon pendants 

 All displayed inside an absolutely wonderful antique iron stove.
One of the largest I have come across.
 But I also adore this antique Victorian musical instrument case.
I have no idea what instrument, but I love the velvet...

I find it odd that as I am purging color from my home,
I am particularly attracted to it at the Shoppe.
I guess it's good that I have both.

Thank you for stopping by today.......
and if it is your first time here and you choose to follow,
Please know I always follow back :)

Where you always find
Wonderful Inspiration from everyone who participates.


  1. Sorry Jana, I'm sure the answer is in your blog somewhere, but I wouldn't know where to look - I noticed you said you're purging colour from your home, and was wondering what you are doing? Are you going mainly white, or a lot of neutrals. I am doing something like that, but would love to have another house to keep colourful. It's great that you have the shop - the best of both worlds.
