It's not really a room -- more of an alcove/closet off the bedroom. It IS where I hang my clothes and it is where I do my lotions and potions every morning and night. It does have French doors which can be closed, thus making it a closet. I prefer, however, to leave them open for the window brings in more light and being able to see that additional three or four feet makes our large bedroom even larger.
The items on the dressing table are memories all -- a Lenox swan from my first boss, a crystal oyster with pearl -- a gift from dear friend Shirley Ann as a memento of a trip to New Orleans and the oysters we ate, a sterling hair brush, mirror and comb -- a gift from my maiden aunt, a small bronze dressing table clock -- a gift from husband Jim. Waterford perfume bottles and Venetian mirror bring sparkle to the space. Jewelry is kept in an oriental box and necklaces around the bust on the dressing table.
It's the place where I start my day and where I end my day -- surrounded by love.
