Dressing Table Update
These are pictures of my dressing table. I was inspired by Debbie.
It's hard to get pictures in this room.
I have the lamp in the chair trying to get a pic of what's on this side. It normally sits on the table, not in the chair.
There are so many trees at the windows that the room is very well shaded and dark. That's why I have the lamps on. Speaking of the lamps. Aren't they great? I got them for a buck a piece at a yard sale. The tall wooden tower thing is a jewelry box from my younger son. I think he got it at Bombay Company. He has very excellent tastes. :) It spirals out and has 4 or 5 compartments.
The little bottle is holding olive oil, which I use as facial moisturizer and lip gloss. I don't remember where I thrifted the little bottle, but I just noticed last week that it has an "L" no the bottom. I got the white floral cup from Goodwill and it has some earrings in it. The little birdhouse, placecard holder was a gift from a mom when I taught preschool, the leather case is for binoculars. I keep my deodorant, gel and a some lotion in it. The white vase was thrifted. The mirror was a gift, handmade by a friend of my ex-inlaws.
The dressing table, itself, belonged to my ex's mother. It was an antique when she bought it. When we divorced, he let me take it. I thought that was really nice of him. He didn't really have a place for it at the time and I will pass it on to the boys and their wives.
I got the little mirror (round above on the wall) at Goodwill, I think and I painted the butterflies.
Pay no attention to the contortionist in the background. Photographing with bad lighting is challenging.
