Matchbook Swap and Dresser Tray


Dresser Tray
Originally uploaded by bluemuf

The swap partners have been selected and my partner is a perfect match. She is new to blogging too, and has a beautiful blog called "The Rose Room"

I spent a few hours yesterday pulling out all sorts of goodies to put in the matchbox. I filled a basket and when I found the box I'm going to use, all this stuff will just not fit (very big grin) I will have to get very creative.

I had mentioned in an earlier post that I had lost my camera. Well, last weekend I bought a new one and I have been learning all the great features this camera has.

This is a picture of my dresser tray. The tray, I believe, was part of a set my mother received in 1941. I remember seeing trinket and powder boxes on her dresser when I was young. The tray is celluloid and she gave it to me in 2005. The lace doily on the tray was also my mother's.

Love the tray! And looks like you must smell pretty too,, from all the perfume bottles I see.

Gorgeous vanity tray! I love that green color and deco look! I'm just a sucker for vintage vanity pretties!
