Assemblage Box: $85
It’s amazing what happens when you combine remnants of our history with a creative vision! Take, for example, this artistic assemblage decor piece. The antique Singer sewing drawer is topped with a brass embellishment from a disintegrating Victorian photo album. Set inside, a plethora of treasures, a mix of industrial and feminine: velvety millinery flowers from a hat, a rose bud salve tin and hardware from a shutter. Drill bits line the bottom, along with vintage paper from an old ledger, stamped with the word “grace”—defined as simple elegance. This delightful piece of decor embodies that quality!
