Vintage finds | Watchmakers Chest

Mum, Ethan and I braved the blustery weather yesterday and headed across the bridge to Junk & Disorderly – hands down the BEST second-hand shop I have ever seen.  I definitely took my time, but I still feel that I would need to spend another hour in there perusing the many aisles and brushing off the dusty relics to be sure I wasn’t missing that ONE amazing piece!

I was looking for a jewellery box as I outgrew my current one many years ago, and I didn’t leave empty handed {surprise surprise}.

Mum found two beautiful old watchmakers chests, lined with deep red velvet and absolutely perfect to re-purpose as a jewellery box.  Each drawer is partitioned, meaning I can finally organise my earrings, rings etc with some sort of separation and PLENTY of room.  Love.

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
