The Boudoir ~ Vintage Vanity









 












 The Boudoir

The boudoir.......  my sanctuary.  
My bedroom is my favorite room in the house.  Filled to the brim with lovely things.
When I wake in the morning.....  it excites my eyes as I look around the room.  It's also the place where I relax and lay my head at the end of the day.  Where I drift off into sweet dreams.
LOL!  My bedroom really is filled to the brim.  My antique bed is stacked high with vintage pillows and quilts, my armoire is filled with fluffy tulle dresses, and the dresser(s)....... not room for one more thing.
I especially love vintage vanity items.  Beautiful perfume bottles, powder boxes and brush & comb sets.  It's like stepping into a 1940's film.  When the women were glamorous.....  as they sat at their vanity dresser.......  combing their hair, pinching their cheeks and powdering their noses.  They dressed in beautiful lingerie and wore lots of sparkly jewellery.  So.....  old Hollywood!
I am curious.........  what's on your dresser??

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
Blessings.

You have some gorgeous pieces there. My sister keeps looking for a vintage vanity set; the hand mirror with a brush and comb. Yours looks great! Thanks for sharing!
