Attic Full of Butterflies

P1013166

I am envisioning myself digging through a trunk of treasures
in the attic. The keyhole is reminiscent of traditional
East lake design, and I could see it on either the trunk itself or the attic door.
I wanted to give this piece a romantic feel and chose some of the new
Blue opal faceted nuggets that I received recently.
The colors play well with the color in the wooden butterfly.
I added a small vintage boot button and faceted Amethyst brio.
And of course anything from Vintaj adds to the unique and vintage
look of this bracelet. I could add this chain to anything and it looks like
it was unearthed from someone's heirloom collection.
This beauty is now available in my shop.

  1. So pretty! I love the keyhole...reminds me that in my old house I have a collection of Eastlake keyholes that I have bought up on eBay and antique stores. Such a great design. Thanks for sharing your inspiration Lorelei! Enjoy the day! Erin

  4. Love it! Such a gorgeous color combo. Oddly enough, just before I got on the computer I was thinking of making something with purple/blue/butterflies for my little sister's birthday. A lovely and inspiring piece.
