Vintage goodness: shadow boxes, projects, buttons and a magnetic memo tray








I decided it was high time to go through my two tins of buttons, and when I found this vintage tray a magnetic memo board came to life. The tray is actually salmon-colored, with gold and black, and so I used an assortment of red, pink, black, gray and gold buttons and the trusty glue gun.

I've been collecting vintage medical supplies for a long time, since I work in health care. The perfect shape shadowbox came along, and voila! Medical shadow box. I love using old printer's type-storage trays and drawers for shawdow boxes. My next project is to incorporate my vintage art, school and office supplies.

Looooooove the tray! Yummy vintage colors. I made my daughter one a few years ago with a too cute Lil' Bo Peep tray. You've inspired me to make another one!
