This week "Artful Thursday" falls on a Friday

In the past I have made some blog entries under the heading of Artful Thursday.  This week I am a day late.

For some reason I have gotten totally away from crafting and blogging and all those things.  Some of it has to do with the fact that my antique shop is pretty busy these days. And we spent a few days at our daughters house for Thanksgiving.    But more than that I have just sunk into a rut where I can't seem to convince myself to get back to it.

However I signed up recently for a year long series of work shops on the site  ROSES ON MY TABLE.

It is the same site where I was doing a workshop on decorating bottles.  This time I am doing a "treasure box."
Now I didn't completely follow her design.  I sort of designed it as I went along but I followed her techniques. And  then made it my own. The box is really a simple one which I am now using to hold some vintage photos I "altered" awhile back.

After taking pictures of the box I see a few things I must touch up and I have to clean the brass closure.  Also I don't think the pictures really do it justice.

Here are a couple of pictures of the box closed and one open.
