Show and Tell Monday


I fell in love with this sweet porcelain vanity/dresser trio when I was out looking for treasures one day. Did you have a vanity growing up? I did and to this day I am attacted to vanity accessories. They are so lady like. Of course! When I was a teen I would sit in front on my vanity doing my hair into different syles, setting my hair for dances, trying on new make up. I was ga ga for make up and still am to this day. I could not wait to get 'permission' to get dolled up. In fact, I was such a sly fox that I put my eye makeup on while on the bus going to school, and came home with it on only to get reprimanded. Oopsie! Ah youth!
Getting back to vanity accessories...I have a personal collection of unique vanity/dresser glass container jars with tops. I call it my glass menagerie. I keep buttons, safety pins, marbles (in cases I lose my marbles!), cotton balls, q-tips, etc. in them. They are a great catch all for small items and great for instant organization. They are spread out all over my home.
Don't be vain...check out those vanity accessories and bring the beauty back into your dressing room/vanity table. You can see this set on my Little Pink Boutique, The Polka Dot Rose, http://www.makeminepink.com/boutiques/details/?store=62.

I saw that pretty little set on your site for pink Friday. It is so pretty. I love vanity accessories, have a couple of antique perfume/cologne bottles and that's it. Your set is very tempting.

Susie,
That is a pretty little set. I have a glass one with painted floweres on my dresser. They are so feminine. And too funny, I used to go to the girls room to put on electric blue eyeliner every morning and take it off before I got home. Of course, all of it never came off. Snagged!!
