My Dressing Table

Do women's dressing
tables fascinate you like
they do me?  Come
along, and I'll give you a
peek at my dressing tables.
 
I bought this perfume
bottle recently.  It is filled
with white sand and shells.

 
I wear this cross bracelet
on special occasions.

 
Isn't this ring so unique?
My friend sells jewelry,
and me and my sister love
to browse through all
her items.  I just bought
this one.


 
Love the colors
in this bracelet.

 
One of my
favorite quotes.

 
You can't have too
many perfume bottles.
I put beads in this one.

 
A gift from Jess.

 
We all want to look
our best when we go out.

 
Nel's favorite earrings
she likes to borrow
when she comes over.

 
Jess' favorite earrings
she likes to borrow.
 
 


It's nice to
Dream
once in awhile. 
 

Nel got married last
year, so I had to have a
picture of her special day
on my dressing table.
I thought this frame
was so antique looking.

 
Yes, a woman's
dressing table is
so fascinating to me.
What is yours like?

Oh Sheri!
What a beautiful display you have on your dressing table... I think it's time for me to pretty mine up.

I love antique perfume bottles..
Nel looks so beautiful in the photo.
How nice you have a special memory there.
Thank you for sharing all of your lovely pieces.

Susie said...

Sheri, Your bracelet is special.I guess I do not have a dressing table unless you count the top of my dresser with the mirror. It is cluttered compared to yours. I do love fancy little perfume bottles. xoxo,Susie

Good morning sweet friend,

I am really late in visiting everyone; I typically do my visits in the morning, and yesterday I did do my visits, but I guess everyone decided to post later in the afternoon!

Oh how I enjoy my dressing table. I just never have had a chance to learn how to capture enough light upstairs for my beautiful loft bedroom is situated in a way where natural light just is NOT in abundance, but charm? YES.

Many special things adorn a woman's table, and say so much about her. I can tell that your table says you LOVE MUCH - and enjoy many of the same things I love. Jewels, reminders of the sea and family.

Have a lovely day, Anita

I love your ring! I also like the Audrey Hepburn picture; there's nothing more suitable for a dressing table than beautiful Holly Golightly!

Leslie said...

I agree Sherri! One can never have too many perfume bottles:) My favorite is the cross bracelet ~ stunning. Love your vanity!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Good morning dear one...so nice to see your words that reflect your soul on my comments page. I love that photo of Nel; what a gorgeous bride! And yes, I'm actually playing with my camera today so I can see how I can capture my home to share more of it. We'll see!

Much love sent to you for the day, Anita

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Thank you Sheri for your visit.
Bellas expression just cracked me up.
Thank you so much for your kind words about mini Bella... Brittany just loved it.
blessings,
Penny

I love looking at other women's vanities : ) Audrey is a great inspiration on a vanity : ) And Nel's wedding photo is wonderful : ) I think you saw my vanity on some posts already, it keeps changing according to my mood and season : )

NanaDiana said...

Sheri-I love your dressing table and that picture of Nel is absolutely the crowning touch to the whole thing. She was a BEAUTIFUL bride! I love all your sweet perfume bottles, too. It's all darling! xo Diana

Susan said...

Hi Sheri...Loved your photos. I don't have a dressing table, per se, but I have a dresser filled, drawer after drawer, with earrings (wayyyyyyy too many pairs), bracelets, necklaces, rings, and on and on.

Loved all your bling. Susan

andrea@townandprairie said...

I need to get organized. My jewels have mounded into a pile in the drawer. If I organized it, I might wear them more. Beautiful photo of Nel! How romantic!

Susan said...

Hi Sheri....Just looked for and read your penny candy post! Don't know how I missed that one. It was fun!

Guess great minds think alike, eh, Sheri?

Hope you have a good day today! Susan

Teresa said...

It's a special moment of the day. Getting ready for it. So I also think you should have with you, there, pieces that make you feel not only beautiful but loved. And then leave and conquer the world :)

I don't have any. Dressing table I mean. But since my walk-in closet is already a reality :happydance: I think I'll now allow myself to dream of one... you give wonderful suggestions.

That picture is priceless. So much love and illusion.

Blessed Be, Dear Friend,
Teresa

Hi Sheri! I am honored that you found inspiration for your beautiful post from my dressing table. I agree-a woman's dressing table is so fascinating and often a window into her soul. Yours is simply lovely. I love your unique jewelry pieces that quote just touched my heart. Isn't that the truth? Thanks for sharing.
Happy Summer!
xx, Heather @ Stylemindchic

Susie Swanson said...

Beautiful and so elegant. Mine is cluttered to no end..Hugs, xo

Kristie Franklin said...

You're dressing table reflects all of the things that are important to you. While I don't have a dressing table I do have a chest of drawers with the things that mean the most to me. Beautiful photo of your daughter!

Inspiredbeautyofcourse said...

Hi Sheri,

Oh I really like this post. Thanks for sharing. Love your special items. I would choose every one!
It would be to hard to choose just one. I love that all have meaning. Now I'm looking at what I have around me and realize its important and meaningful to surround yourself with special things. Thanks!
Hugs
Larisa

You have some beautiful pieces of jewellery. The ring from your friend is my particular favourite. What a lovely quote and a beautiful wedding photo too. I too like to have my special perfumes out on my dressing table - it's not just about the fragrance, the bottle has to be attractive too!

Marcia Pilar said...

I love everything about your dressing table, Sheri. From that perfect quote to the perfume bottles, the jewelry to the beautiful framed faces. This is the second dressing table I've seen this week while blogging. I used to have a most perfect one with several antique items, but my taste has changed so much since. I have been thinking of setting up a new one in our current bedroom, with a more beach/coastal feel to it. You and Eileen (other blogger who shared one) have inspired me.
How wonderful to dream together.
xoxo's

Attic Clutter said...

oh beautiful jewelry Sheri
and the little verse about life (:) in the cute jeweled frame..
hugs..Patty

Ayu Maselli said...

Dearest Sheri,

I love the earrings too, the Cross bracelet such unique.

happy to have ladies in the house, so we can exchange stuffs each other ;)
hugs for all

Tammy said...

Beautiful, Sheri..and such a beautiful image of Nel.

I must admit I am addicted to and equally fascinated by vintage pieces and trinkets. I love browsing through Pinterest for little treasures.

And I love what you did with your perfume bottle. I keep sand in a jar just to have a bit of the beach with me at all times.

xo,
Tammy<3

Palomasea said...

I am so behind in my blog visits, dear Sheri...but I'm catching up!!
I adore dressing tables, and I thank you for sharing all the lovelies in this intimate, beautiful space...
I love perfume bottles too, yours are so lovely...as are the jewelry pieces, and that quote...one of my favorites too....but most beautiful, of course, is your precious daughter and son-in-law...priceless....

My dressing table is taken up by my favorite fragrances...I like to have one for every whim and mood... ;)

Thank you, sweet friend, for visiting me...you are so kind....

Wishing you and your girls a glorious weekend!
Hugs and blessings,
