The top of the chest in our bedroom. It's an old Walnut chest and in it's drawers are Husband Jim's tees, handkerchiefs, socks and "unmentionables".
The top is also his (for I have my dressing table) but somehow the "Lady of the Necklaces" has found her way to the top of his dresser. Wedding and anniversary pictures are also there -- and on his chest has always resided our wedding picture. The mirror was a Tuesday Morning find that I like much better than he does --
And what happened Friday as we hit one Estate Sale after another in the city . . .I found something that I have been searching for -- a dressing table mirror . . .
Perfect for this chest -- it's walnut as is the chest. And except for the "Lady of the Necklace" (who went back to my dressing table) and a blue and white vase of dried flowers, everything is still on the chest -- wedding pictures (ours and Daughter Sarah and her Andy) and a picture taken on our 40th Wedding Anniversary. His childhood Whizzo the Clown bank and a "Genie" lamp that he played with as a child at his grandmother's. The Oriental box in the background was bought on an R and R when he served in Viet Nam.
It's a small change -- going from one mirror to another but I think it's a BIG difference in the top of his dresser.
It's Monday so it's time to visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to see what other transformations there are this Met Monday!
