My Latest Treasure...


Thought I would show you this little beauty I found on my travels recently, this 1920's glass dressing table set may not be to everyones taste, but it fits perfectly with my vintage style.

I love anything like this, and for £9.50 I couldn't not get it!, I'm still deciding on a place for it and exactly what to put in the delicate, heart shaped trinket dishes, so if you have any ideas let me know! I was going to use the tray to display my perfumes but I didn't want to split up the set.

The little bowl at the front isn't originally from the set, and it once would have come with another candle-stick holder instead (i'm a geek and found a completed one on ebay!) but I kind of love it even more as someone has added the little bowl at some point over the years.

I've had quite a lot of requests to do home and decor related blog posts and videos, and as me and my boyfriend are currently looking for out first place together, I have been slowly growing a collection of pieces for our home, so hopefully I can do a few more posts like this.

What vintage bargins have you found? I'd love to know...

  7. I love it! I think that it would be great maybe jewellery in it, colourful sweets or beads. If you like, I did a blog post (http://sugar-and-silk.blogspot.com/2011/07/14-ways-to-brighten-up-your-room.html) on 14 ways to brighten up your room, and I talk about crystal bowls and stuff. :) x

  25. I'll be moving out with my Fiance soon as well, and all I can think about right now is how we are going to decorate! How will you manage to keep your girly style but not overwhelm your boyfriend? Do you know what your decorating plans/method will be to make you both happy? I would really love some advice from you on that!
