Practical and Pretty

I adore objects of romance
atop a white dresser or vanity-
a brush, a comb, a mirror, 
a bottle of perfume.

In my pickin', 
I hunt for items
with many uses.

Display is 99% of the sale.

Last week at the shop, 
I sold an ironstone tray
with two custard cups.

Serving pieces
filled with cotton swabs 
and cotton balls, 
make a delightful vanity tray.

A vase is both
pretty and practical.

The pink depression glass
tray, cream and sugar
would make a great vanity set.

I may have to try that one.

Sorry for the repeat photo above.
It's just one of my favorites.

  4. I love hearing new ways to display every day items. Q tips in such a pretty milk glass vase, priceless. I like the look. I look forward to reading more. I'm having a giveaway if you would like to put your name in the mix. Hugs. Tammy
