Hello sweet friends, hope you’re doing well and being creative!
Who doesn’t love Rub N Buff? I have been using it on and off for 25 years, now you may realize my age, ha, ha!
I have to be honest, I fell in love with it all over again. Shame on me for forgetting how much I loved working with you Rub N Buff. I did forget you for a short time and I’m very sorry and you won’t be forgotten again.
I have had these tiny frames for 20 some years. I bought them from Michael’s for I believe 50 cents, great memory, don’t you think?
One day while moving pieces around I decided to take these frames and used a new tube of Rub N Buff in Antique Gold I had in the house. I wanted to make them gilded, more French and elegant.
Don’t you love my paper plate pallet?
I have to say it took me 20 minutes to finish eight frames and I couldn’t be happier.
Adding these to thrift store dishes and a few pieces of silver plate that was my grandmother’s makes this little vignette extra special. Don’t you think the Rub N Buff added so much to these little frames? Love my antique pink French book for interest and I can’t forget my little crown either!
The urn is a thrift store find I found during Quarantine. I have been looking for one this shape and size, can be a bit pricey.
To my surprise my favorite thrift store scheduled appointments for curbside pickup. They also scheduled appointments for anyone who wanted to look around the shop. A mask had to be worn inside and out.
Happy we found a few great pieces and helped a bit with NJ small businesses that are hurting!
The urn is filled with all sorts of treasures I already had, look at the gorgeousness, don’t you love it?
I added a topiary I made a couple of years ago with a pot I also painted to bring a touch of nature for summer.
Have a great day!
