Emily's Dressing Table...

I'd like to show you a few things,  
On Emily's Dressing Table.

Here I must confess I truly don't know what her name is but...
she shouldn't be nameless,  so Emily it is :-)
and... I must also confess not all things are period correct.

Here is a Cabinet Card Photo of Emily,
she was obviously a Lady of Means,
she has Very Fancy Clothing.

(all photos can be enlarged by clicking them)

A scattering of items on her dressing table...

A Deco Era Brooch,
with rows of Sparkley Rhinestones.

A small collection of Black Glass Buttons.

A Few Hatpins, with Black Glass Tops,
Hatpins are the original Ladies Weapon of Choice,
these are Sharp and over 8" Long!

The end of a Deco Era Cigarette Case,
showing rows of Sparkley Rhinestones.

And lastly a Small Handmade Purse,
just enough room for a Cell Phone and Credit Card :-)

Today I am joining two great Blog Parties,
Please stop and visit...

That is a real nice collection of victorian jewerly, and the way you displayed was great. Those little lambs are great when I can find them. Even for a good price. Have a great day, Julian

I love the hatpins. My mom has a collection that I have been trying to work on her in passing them down to me. They are just such a stylish piece of fashion of a bygone era. I posted my VBF early this morning and only now realized that I forgot to do McLinky, so I hope you have a chance to stop on by....thanks.

Brilliant choices for Vintage Black Friday ... what a stunning woman 'emily' was ... and her accessories are amazing ... It's very hard to pick a favorite, but I have to agree ... the purse is so perfect for a cell and credit card!!

Happy VBF!

I would love to have your cabinet photo and those black hatpins (I collected them LOL). And the glass buttons are awesome. Your entire collection is so pretty and worth drooling over.
