Dressing Table Romance

"Our admiration of the antique
is not admiration of the old, 
but of the natural." 
       Ralph Waldo Emerson

   There is nothing more elegant, more romantic, or more feminine than a dressing table. Be it old or new a beautiful dressing table adds instant glamour to a room. I have had a few over the years!  My very first was a little painted cottage style vanity with spindly legs. I was so excited the day I brought it home! I definitely felt like a princess. My style has evolved naturally over the years but I have always, always had a vanity in my room. They are irresistible to me! That fact might be why I was helpless when I came across this stunning vintage French vanity during my antiquing travels. I couldn't leave it behind! It was white and I added a light stain to it so that it would match my ivory coloured furniture and also a touch of gold to the beautiful carvings. I am so happy with it! Most of my decor accents are vintage but my jewelry box is by Wolf Designs and the pretty powder puff box is from Paul and Joe


  1. Such a pretty dressing table! The ivory color with a touch of gold is an exquisite touch to the vanity. Your jewelry box is lovely and that precious powder puff box looks fir for a princess.

  2. I forgot to mention how much I liked the Ralph Waldo Emerson quote, he could put his thoughtful truths into words and make them seem like a song.
