Bits of Glam

An old lap desk holds my makeup
Antique jewelry for accents of Glam

Vintage Glass containers hold cotton, brushes and jewelry

One of my favorite places in my home is my dressing table.  It is my mini escape from reality and into my guilty pleasure; make-up.  I spend quite a bit of time here, so I have surrounded myself with vintage pieces that I adore and have collected over the years. I have an elaborate collection of vintage perfume bottles, powder compacts,  rhinestone jewelry and white linens. I shop at at flea markets, antique shops, yard sales  and thrift stores.  I can always find use for pretty vintage glass bottles, delicate porcelain plates and bowls to organize my brushes, cotton and place my rings. You can also get creative and use them in unexpected places through out your home such as in the kitchen, the living room, or the entry way with fresh flowers. The small crystal lamp with cherubs in the photo, I found at at a yard sale for $10 and a vintage lap desk from an antique shop stores my make-up perfectly.  

Thanks for reading!
