vintage rocks jewel box

Took a break from pricing & sorting my stock for Swinderby antiques fair (how on earth have I accumulated so much "stuff", I am almost ashamed ...) to glue some fabric scraps to a distinctly uninspiring and tatty old jewellery box which I want to use to display trinkets at the fair.  A couple of hours, some PVA glue, vintage textiles & ribbons from my scrap bag and ten sticky fingers later, I was pleased with the retro result.

Don't you just love these 50s kittens with their blossom bonnets (cut from an old apron)?
