Need A Hand?? Giveaway from Retro Chalet

hands 4

Retro Chalet is an Etsy shop full of vintage goodies! You’ll love the print blocks, melamine dinnerware and these HANDS!

Could you use a hand? Who couldn’t, right?!

Retro Chalet is the place to visit for vintage glove molds in all different styles.  They make fabulous props for photos…and of course I painted these red and turquoise.  I can’t get enough of these colors together.

They would be a great addition to your craft show display!

This hand is shabby and chic already!

You can decorate with them just like they are or decoupage them for a creative touch!  They fit right in around here. :)

I tried my painted hands on the back porch nestled in the flowers a bit…how fun!

The possibilities for these unique glove mold are endless! The more I moved mine around the house the more ideas I came up with!  Some of the hands can easily be painted and others are smooth and shiny so they already look great.

Most of these are 24 years old or more…but their age doesn’t show.

    I fell in love with the hot pink Samsonite luggage – the color of my shop – and the vintage doll assemblage made from a garden tool part. Would love to use one of these hands in my display. I have liked on FB, tweeted, visited Retro Chalet’s shop, and added to my circle.
