When Danielle moved home she brought her dress form with her! Yea for me! It's not vintage, and it actually came from Steve and Barrys when it was closing, we bought it for her for Christmas, she is an aspiring fashion designer... I still love that it's here for a while, (I love that she's here for a while too!) and so I dressed her up this week! I bought this old dress for the buttons and material but after I washed it and started to put it in my stash well I just couldn't cut it up. Look at that teany tiny waist! The gather at the top is lovely. The Rhinestone is covering a small tear and the fabric has discolored in places but she still deserved a crown! So in the dining room she went and this brings me to the reason for this post...
She sits in the dining room and next to the bathroom. Yup you heard me, the bathroom. I wish I could move it away from the dining room but alas even though I can move any piece of furniture in the house I have yet been able to move this somewhere else! So knock before entering if you know what's good for you!
This chandi is one of three that I found at an estate sale in a box on the third day! Can you believe it? Nobody looked in the box for 3 days! Well you know what the last day of the sale means... 1/2 off day! Woo Hoo all 3 for $30.00! 2 of them are in this small bathroom and the last one is waiting for the perfect place.
Sorry for all of the dark and blotchy pictures, there are no windows close enough to this room to take a pic in natural light. Imagine how I look after I put my makeup on in here! I have to go to the mirror in the dining room for my mascara application! This rose picture was really too bright for me so I antiqued it and then put it in this chippy frame. It sits above the toilet, you've all seen one of those before so I'll spare you.
Duanes medicine cabinet. I love this little thing, the glass knob turns to lock the door.
Queen of the bath! No hair do necessary! She is from my primitive days and she watches over us as we brush our teeth. :)
I wrote mirror, mirror on the wall with a marker on the mirror. Max will surely use that against me one day! I did it once before in silver and I liked that better so I better find me a silver marker!
An old toothbrush holder is now a candle holder. I saw the mirror idea in a magazine years ago and always wanted to do it so I'm always on the look out for hand mirrors, especially bakelite ones, but I will fill in with vintage plastic ones until I have enough bakelite!
I think I showed this cupboard before, it is across from the mirror and holds ALOT of stuff! I swear toothbrushes mulitply in there!
O k I could only show you this because I spent the better part of Saturday morning cleaning in here. Today is a new day and so it's a good thing I took these pictures Saturday! Life has been busy here at 612 and I haven't been able to get any new creations done :( I did manage to put some things in the etsy stores this weekend though. Maybe tomorrow I can clear off the worktable and make a little something!
Thanks for stopping by, Theresa xoxo
