Treasure Chest and Happy Women's Day Ladies!!!

Do you celebrate International Women's Day?

I do. Seriously... For me, that's no about women's rights etc., but about To Be Just Woman... Not a wife, mother, daughter, sister, baby sitter, employer, employee, housewife or... OMG how many roles are we playing during our life?! To Be Just Woman that's about soul, about dreams, fantasies, wishes, expectations... everything without duties and "must do"... Everything The Woman loves, likes and needs.

For this 8 of March I decided to make a wonderful gift for myself - a Treasure Chest.

  This lovely wooden box from local craft store is:
1. After sanding, painted with Magnolia tone acrylic paint;
2. Decoupaged by printed tissue paper (the pictures are from greatest free Vintage picture source The Graphics Fairy and Shabby Chic papirskatter);
3. Embellished with hand painted Shantung silk roses, dusty pink lace, Swarovski flatback rhinestones, key charms and a fun charm;
4. Lined with velvet fabric from 1950's and golden trim.
As closure I used gorgeous Vintage heart stamping and as legs - I've attached Faceted Pink Quartz over sized beads.

Happy Women's Day Ladies!
