Arranging - rearranging.

This dressing table used to belong to my grandfather, but it's been passed (or is that offloaded :-)) to me . It had been LOTS of different colours but l stripped it back years ago. After all that work l've never been able to repaint it, though l'd love a more beachy coloured, curvy one..... but for now, l thought l'd better find a spot on it for my little florentine cabinet.


l took everything off and gave it a bit of a dust....(not fun), however it WAS fun putting it all back together and when l'd finished l took some pics to share. Found a couple of roses blooming in the garden...though l have no idea HOW, since it's sooo cold out there.


As you can see l'm kinda a MAXImalist....l have hordes of stuff sitting around....just the way l like it.

Vintage frocks for a little added colour.

In the 50's and 60's lady head vases were given away with flowers by florists, they were often made in the style of the popular women of the time, which prob'ly explains why so many of them look a bit like Jackie Kennedy or Lucille Ball. They were usually made in either Japan or America......l only have a couple, but l'm sure you could see lots more styles on ebay or specialist sites.

This old leather suitcase was bought at a garage sale for $4.00 about 15 years ago and has pretty much sat in the top of the wardrobe since then. l took it out at the weekend and stashed it under the dressing come l didn't think of that before.!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to pop on over for a visit. Have a great rest of your week.

Til next time.
