Last November I did a post featuring Etsy shop Mapleton Drive.  Remember these fantastic boxes?



Well, run on over to One Kings Lane today and check out Kelly’s beautiful boxes included in their Lust List Sale!  Congratulations, Kelly!

(By the way, I have one of Kelly’s lucite square boxes (like the pink one above), and it is just a fabulous business card holder.  It looks amazing on my desk and I highly recommend it!)





I have had two amazing days!  Yesterday I opened my mail to find this adorable and glam acrylic box from Kelly at Mapleton Drive!

Here’s a close up – isn’t it terrific?!

Today, I opened my door to find another package.  Inside was this beautiful painting by Kerry at Design du Monde.  Last week she had a giveaway, and I won!  I never win anything!  I’m so glad that the first time I won something it was a Kerry Steele original!  I couldn’t be a happier girl!

Kelly Wheat is the woman with the vision behind Mapleton Drive.  With a background in the talent business and penchant for devouring fashion magazines, Kelly started creating her own jewelry pieces.  That’s right – jewelry!  Kelly’s decorative boxes are what brought me to Mapleton Drive, but then I realized that her awesome sense of style extends into beautiful necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and even hair accessories!

Isn’t everything amazing?  I love Kelly’s use of natural elements juxtaposed with bright colors.  So feminine, yet edgy.

I asked Kelly a few questions, and here’s what she had to say:

Pursuing Vintage: How did you get started creating such beautiful things?

Kelly Wheat: I started a year ago with my Etsy site, selling jewelry. Pushed by family and friends…. almost a dare really.

Pursuing Vintage: How did you bridge that into decor?

Kelly Wheat: I am addicted to fashion mags and have spent thousands of hours (and probably dollars) to reach the following conclusion: fashion, jewelry and home decor are all interconnected. Home decor trends start on the runway. It shares or even steals ideas, textures and fabrics from the fashion world. Here is an example. One day I just followed my creative fashion sense with a goal of creating something functional and cool to hide those ugly remote controls piled upon my coffee table. My solution: a decorative lacquer box with a natural flair. Bye Bye clickers!

Pursuing Vintage:  What a great solution!  So, I have to ask – why geodes?

Kelly Wheat: I love all elements of nature. Rocks and shells fascinate me by their beauty… I love them!

Here is Kelly’s remote box.  Stunning!
