Ruffles, Buttons and a Gypsy Box
I still had those papers I mentioned in my last post laying on my table and I have been looking at lots of boho style and gypsy caravans on Pinterest so I was inspired to cover this wooden office tray I had sitting around. I really don't know what I will do with it but it was a fun project. I have my work office packed up right now because it is getting new paint and carpet. I tossed my faded old songbird art that was in there so maybe I will liven things up with some boho decor - lol!
I made a run through the VOA yesterday afternoon and came up with three gorgeous vintage half slips.
How could I resist these colors and ruffles. Gosh, if they were not so sheer I would wear them as skirts. Maybe I could put a slip under a slip. I might get by with boho decor in my office at work but not so sure about wearing a slip on the outside.
Just look at this sweet little peach rosette.
I also scored a few new buttons last week and haven't gotten around to showing them yet. Photo above is glass, bone and metal. That milk glass button is the most lovely, creamy shade and, sadly, has a tiny chip on the edge. I will pretend it doesn't and treasure it anyway.
Some interesting wooden buttons, vegetable ivory and a few okay plastics. I do like the white plastic rose and always like the pierced designs. I haven't run into some of these wooden styles before.
There were also some buckles in this lot and that knot-looking button just right of center is an unusual fabric button. I don't keep many fabric buttons but this one will stay.
We having a hot spell, by Portland standards, with temps in the 90s. Whew! At least I am getting lots of indoor chores crossed off the list.
