The Vintage Vanity Comes Home...

                             
      

My mom was sweet enough to help me move what was left of my window display into my booth space last night.  I couldn't quite fit every piece of furniture into my space, so something had to come home with me.  I am not a bit sorry that my little vintage vanity didn't sell.  I am just loving it in our family room!  I think this is where it was meant to be!


A vintage vanity, placed beside a comfy chair, with a lamp and a stack of favorite books sitting on top makes for a charming end table.  The skinny drawer is the perfect size for remotes, and the cupboards are ideal for games and puzzles.  In the opening where one might expect to see a little chair or stool, a vintage picnic basket holds a couple of folded throw blankets.  I adore the idea of using vintage furniture pieces in unexpected places!


My Eden roses are in full bloom!  I looked forward to picking this first, lovely fragrant bouquet all...winter...long!




I hope you are having a wonderful week!  Stay tuned!  I will be back very soon with an exciting giveaway that you won't want to miss!  Thank you for your sweet visit!

Best Wishes and Blessings,
Amanda

What a great way to use the sweet vanity. I can't understand why it didn't sell because it's so pretty, but you just never know about customers. Oh, how I wish I could grown roses like yours.
