Here are some pretty things that I have acquired recently. Almost all vintage and coloured with a dreamy pastel pink colour.
The vintage dressing gown was a steal for only $2.00. There is no sash to tie it up so I am on the look out for some nice soft ribbon that matches the colour of it closely enough to do the job. The lace sleeves and back of the gown are so beautiful and delicate. I will feel oh so glamorous lazing around the house in this beauty once I find a replacement sash for it.
The vintage beauty travel case was a gift from my mother. When she got it it needed quite a bit of cleaning, but after wiping it over with a wipe I managed to scrub the stains off of it so that it now looks nearly as good as new. With a little love and care you can make something quite beautiful, you see? Inside the lining is a lovely pink colour and in their little places are most of the original beauty containers, which still smell of old creams and such from the last lady who had the case in her possession. However, the two clear bottles are new, replacing the originals that must have been lost or damaged over time. What a pity. But there was something else inside it that made up for it: a vintage hat pin - my first to own. You can't quite tell from the picture, but the pearl too is a dreamy pink colour.
Quite lovely things indeed. I think that they shall look rather nice in my little hoped for dressing room when the boy and I find another unit to live in.
