Hooked on Shadow Boxes

Julia over at Hooked on Houses is hosting her Hooked on Friday's and we thought we'd play along....especially when we got a lovely package in the mail!

It just so happens that we have a dear cousin who is an artist in the family....so we decided to start carrying her art in the store. { It didn't take much persuasion you know......her name does start with a "K" after all!! }

Just look at these lovely shadow boxes....each lovingly made with little pins, ornaments, postcards, magazine covers, birds, flowers, and jewelry....just about anything to tell a story!



What we love about Kelli's shadow boxes, is that you can purchase one of her own inspired creations, or she will create a custom shadow box just for you.

Do you have some precious jewelry from your grandmother? How about some Christmas ornaments that your Aunt always had up on the tree that you've inherited....but don't know what to do with? Now you do!














{ We don't know about you.....but we're hooked! }

Stop on over at Hooked on Houses to see what everyone else is hooked on today!

Those are great! Maybe I need to find somethings to put in a shadow box.
Thanks for the tip about my sofa...I will definitely check with Broyhill and see if they still have the fabric. Fingers crossed!

I have not seen a shadowbox in years. This artwork is beautiful. I thought it was a lost art. Wonderful!

Thanks for stopping over to my blog for the Hooked On party.

I like the idea of not having all the historical momentos packed away.

I took my grandma's jewelry and made a Christmas tree on felt with it.

Have a good day.
