Vintage Objects of Beauty




Objects of beauty displayed in our bedrooms and bath bring a lucious vintage feel. Mirrors with sparkle gracefully reflect the silver handled comb and brush and powder dish and puff. Compacts with their statement of glamour from a earlier era are a lovely collectors item.... I also have a vintage hankie and bar pin and a old set of necessities..... These old items show beauty as eternity gazing in the mirror.... I love old dresser items as they become harder to find ..... and the alure of the lovely lady brushing her hair and peering into the mirror readying herself for a suitor....Doesn't that seem like a romance of a different slower paced era that we have lost time with......
