I went on to my local thrift store and found these three wooden objects for a total of $1.25. I brought them home and sanded, painted, glued and laquered. I now have two jewelery/keepsake boxes and one Loteria dice/block. Everyside is handpainted with different pictures added and of course showered with glitter. 5x7x3 - 5x7x3 - 3 1/2 cube

What splendid boxes. I love all the intricate details, they remind me of the narrowboat style.

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.
