New Listings for Feb 22nd!

It's Wednesday again and that means new jewelry boxes!  Coming straight from my kitchen table, Here's a sneak peek at what will be listed on HDV tonight...

Note: I wanted to get this blog posted asap. A couple of the jewelry boxes are missing a handle. Never fear, those are easy fixes and will be fixed before listing tonight.

A huge jewelry box able to take on a large collection of jewelry... or whatever you decide to put in it. Features lots of compartments perfect for organizing.

 Every girl needs some jersey-ish fabuliciousness (yup, I just made up a bunch of words). This jewelry box features two drawers and a top that flips up showcasing even MORE storage and the original mirror.
Don't worry, the handle on the bottom will be fixed.

I'm in love with this jewelry box. It's big. The top flips up to reveal an unbelievable amount of storage space as well as the original mirror.  It also has two full size drawers. Love love love this one. Did I mention I really love this jewelry box?

Obviously I was thinking of a nursery when I put together this jewelry box. Imagine giving this as a baby shower gift.  Fill the inside with all things baby.  Or, if it's gonna be a girl imagine giving this as the little girl's first jewelry box? Fill it with headbands barrettes, etc...
The doors are cut out. Originally there were glass panes.  However, I dropped one of the panes. I actually like the box better being able to see through to the inside... but this was my mistake and therefore I will slightly reduce the price of the listing.

A sweet taste of summer. This jewelry box is clean and bright, it makes me happy just looking at it. The top opens showing off lots of compartments and the original mirror. The body of the box has four drawers and a area to hang necklaces and/or bracelets.
I will be adding a handle to the top drawer.

The fix boxes will be listed on HDV tonight at 7:00 CST.

Happy Birthday, Sydney!

This adorable girl is Sydney. For Syd's 8th Birthday she was given one of my refurbished jewelry boxes. Sydney loves her jewelry box and, according to her mom, couldn't wait to get home and organize it.

Here's the before and after of Sydney's jewelry box:

Nolan's Treasure Box

My son and daughter have watched and even helped me make a ton of jewelry boxes.  With every jewelry box refurbished my kids have asked to have one of their own.  I have promised that someday I would refurbish a box special for each of them. Finally, I made good on my promise.

Here's Nolan's Treasure box...

Yes, I said treasure box.  In Nolan's words, "Mom, we can call mine a treasure box because I'm not a girl. I don't like fancy make up and rings. I'm a boy so mine can have boy stuff."

Nolan picked out the paper and color scheme. As you can see from the pictures below he even did most of the work. The paper doesn't lay perfectly, nor is the box in perfect condition.  Truth be told I would be mortified if anyone associated this Treasure Box with me/my work.  However, my Son created it (with a little help from me). He is dang proud of his treasure box and I am dang proud of him.  Therefore I will claim this treasure box as a Nolan/Dana Douglas Original Design.

Nolan has filled his treasure box with a plethora of Squinkies and Garbage Guys. Occasionally a race car, Lego guy, or random what-cha-ma-jigger will make it's way into the treasure box.
Nolan is happy.  I'm happy because his dresser is less cluttered.  All is right with the world.

I will also be blogging about my daughter's jewelry box. It's pink, sparkly and filled with trinkets galore (every girl's dream).

Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day! I hope your day is filled with happiness and love.

The below jewelry box was listed in HDV just last week.  The box sold immediately. In fact I had several offers on this particular piece.
 Sarah, the women who purchased this jewelry box, bought it for her 9 year old daughter as a Valentine's gift.  This morning I was sent a few pictures that made me beyond happy... so happy I had to share them with you.

A special THANK YOU to Sarah for sharing these photos.  I hope your daughter enjoys her jewelry box for years and years to come.

3 down and 3 to go

Tuesday night I listed six new jewelry boxes. Thus far three have sold but there are still three remaining. In the mean time I am busy creating new jewelry boxes to be listed this Wednesday, February 15th.

Here's what has sold thus far:
The above is one of my favorites.  A mom bought this jewelry box for her 8 year old daughter.

 This blue and white polka dot jewelry box found a home in Wyoming.
Finally the bright number above sold and will be given as a birthday gift for a 9 year old girl. 

As mentioned there are still three jewelry boxes available from this week (see pic below) and more to be listed on Wednesday, February 15th.
