Pink Saturday: Musical Jewelry Box

If you've been coming here for a while, you know how much I ADORE creating things from vintage jewelry and jewelry parts!  What better way to store them than in jewelry boxes.  Right?!?  

Right!  Good answer!  *wink*
And if you have a weakness for vintage jewelry, like me, then you are going to need more than one!  I have them stacked all around my studio!

There are so many wonderful vintage jewelry boxes out there just waiting to hold wonderful old pieces of jewelry again.  The ones in my studio are bursting at the seams with old jewelry and jewelry parts...because I don't shy away from something if it is broken.  If it is pretty then broken doesn't matter to me!  I'll find a way to use it in one of my creations where it will shine, as if nothing is wrong!

Out of my jewelry boxes, I love the pink ones the best, and if you are here for Pink Saturday, I know you do too!  

This is my "newest" acquisition.  I found this little gem on ETSY.  Don't you just adore ETSY?!?  I'm crazy about the delightful color of this one!  It has a few scuffs but that is part of the appeal.  I love to think about someone using these boxes back in the day.  I wonder what type of jewelry was stored within.  This box is actually a music box...and it works beautifully.  I just haven't identified the tune just yet.

And O.M.G.  It is the perfect color inside!  There is one little spot that is discolored but the inside is just lovely!  The little box-looking-thingy {for lack of a better} is where the little music mechanism is located.

And just look how fabulous it is with all these sparkly jewelry pieces!  Yummy!
Thank you for stopping by for this week's Pink Saturday.  I hope you have enjoyed my little jewelry boxes.  

To get more perfectly pink perfections...go pay our lovely hostess, Beverly, a visit and all the other pinkies!

Happy Pink Saturday and
Many Sparkly Blessings,

Oh my gosh, you have pink ones! I just bought one last week at the Goodwill. It's cream like the one in your first picture. The inside is in nearly perfect condition, a beautiful red velvet. The top is lined with red satin with white snowflakes. I originallt bought it for our booth but decided to keep it since I don't have one. Besides, my Great Grandmother had one and it reminds me of her, not to mention the fabulous smell when you open it!
Happy Pink Saturday and have a super weekend!

I have that same little wind-up alarm clock! It's been sitting on a shelf (as decoration - not for actual use) for a few years because I thought it didn't work. Our 7 year old grandson was looking at it and I explained to him that years ago, clocks didn't have batteries and that they had to be wound every day. So I showed him how to set the time and wind it up and lo and behold - it does work! So now I have it on a lower shelf and wind it up every morning. I hope your's works, too.
