A little shabby chic...

I made this little box for my friend Frederica's birthday the year I met her. The lid slides off and I printed a French enamel number 41 on it because that was her age, I surfed the net looking for the number, it took forever to find a 41!
It's not really a roombox because the box wasn't high enough. I just wanted to make a lot of pretty things that she could take out of it and use in her dollhouse if she wanted to. Because Frederica just loves to change things around all the time (even in her 1:1 house nothing is safe!)

As it happens she's pretty much left it as it was when I gave it to her! It was fun to make all those little shabby things and best of all she loved it!
