What girl (or woman) doesn’t love a pretty vanity area to get ready in each day and night? I picture a white vanity table with a matching scalloped edge mirror or a fabulous gilted gold desk and coordinating leopard print stool; whatever you imagine that would make you feel like a queen getting ready for her day. Here are some of the recent treasures I’ve come across lately that you can add to your own personal vanity that won’t break the bank.
My absolute favorites are the filigree perfume bottles that were so popular in the 50s and 60s. One of the ones I have for sale is undoubtedly made by Stylebuilt, a manufacturing company from New York, well known for their “guaranteed never to tarnish” filigree metals that enwrap these beautiful trinkets. Not only are they stunning to look at, but they are super functional as well, serving as a container to hold your most breathtaking of scents, perfumes and fragrances. I have two of these beautiful bottles for sale, one with intricate rose detailing and the other with an ornately melded braided rope.
**Want to buy one of these fabulously chic vintage vanity items? Check them out on my Ebay listings for these and a whole lot more fabulous vintage home décor finds. Also, finally my Etsy shop, Vintage Velvet and Lace, is open!! There are only a few items posted as of yet, but if you follow my shop you will get alerts as new items are posted throughout the week!

With Winter on the horizon and a possible snow storm looming in early November, I thought this would be a perfect time to share with all of you some of my cozy finds this past weekend during my adventures in thrifting. With a glamorous look and an oh so soft touch, I stumbled on not one, but two of Bath & Body Works’ dazzling winter white handbags from collections past. One a medium sized tote in winter white suede with faux fur piping and trim; the other a large and stunning creamy quilted tote also with faux fur trim; these two handbags have earned a spot on my wall (literally), hanging high for easy visibility, as any beautiful art object should be seen.
