Sweet Shabby Hatbox!
Hello Friends! I am so excited to show and tell you about this beautiful bit of eye candy!
I found this beautiful hatbox creation in one of my favorite flea markets! Alas it was too much for my shabby budget... imagine my surprise and delight when this booth posted a sign for 50% off! SQUEAL!!!!

The Hatboxes are layered and wrapped in ribbon
with the prettiest handmade roses sprinkled all over the top!
In Rachel Aswell's new book she shows a giant hat box creation with all white ribbons made to look like a cake... of course I wanted to try to craft one, but I thought this creation was beautiful and for the price perfect (plus a lot less work for under $10 who can beat this!!)
I thought it would go perfectly on this beautiful white cake stand that I found at a garage sale where everything else was SUPER EXPENSIVE!
(they said $2 on the cake stand...I paid and silently whooped for JOYand did the happy jig!)
Of course this cake stand found its home in my dining room...
maybe I will bake a cake to show you,
What sounds good?
Something summery and yummy...
I hope you enjoyed this delightful little Shabby Treasure!
A special thank you to Cindy at
Romantic Homes
for hosting Show and Tell Friday!
Squishy Hugs,
