Yup, that's a Smurf. My grandparents got him for me on one of their trips to Europe prior to the introduction of Smurfs into the US. He has a place of honor on my dresser and in my heart.
I believe I mentioned having a plastic bangle obsession in an earlier post, well, there they are. The rack on the right is actually a mug holder and I rather like it better than the one on the left. Most of the bracelets on the right are bakelite and most of those are thrift store finds at $5 or less (in some cases a lot less.)
I generally don't wear necklaces due to an issue with my neck so finding the right jewelry box with the right set of compartments has been a bit of a struggle. The fact that I also wanted something funky and preferably vintage, and didn't want to pay very much didn't help either.
The plastic containers on top hold overflow.
I also did a small repurposing project today. A while back I found this at an estate sale.
The carved rose is bakelite and I think it started out life as a necklace. The necklace part is completely trashed and I wouldn't be able to wear it anyway. The rose is damaged but still worth having so I needed to figure out how to turn it into something I can wear.
Yesterday I picked this up at the thrift store.
