DIY-Vintage Holiday Shadow Boxes

Welcome and Happy Holidays!
I have had a horrible head cold and been working 
at the library a bit this week.  
I feel like it's been forever since I've had time to blog.  
'Tis the Season I guess!
Today's project is a quick redo of some shadow boxes 
I have used for several years.
They are in my newly redone downstairs half bath... 
more pics of this soon! 
I got them at a yardsale for a dollar a piece.... 
the stickers were still on the backs!  
But they easily unscrewed and the top lifted off.  
I love the details on the framing.  
I removed the hydrangea, it was a bit too bright of blue anyway... 
and to cover a few scuffs from the glue I added a page from an old book.   
You'll see move things from me using book pages in crafts soon!
The sweet vintage graphics were from another used book!  
I have several images ready to craft with... 
just need to get a few more little frames.
I added a bit of vintage lace to this one.
And made a glittered heart with another page from the book.

Like so many things, these are prettier in person!
Of course, I will have to change them out for Valentine's Day... 
what fun it will be to come up with another collection of goodies!

I will be posting many more DIY things soon.  
Can't wait to share them with you!

Merry Christmas....
