This is my dressing corner. The mirror used to hang above my grandparents mantel. The shutter was one for the rubbish bin, and I loved its color and texture.
The bracelets above the mirror are hanging from an antique drying rack.
The jewels...some of these pieces are made by me, others are part of my collection.
A bit closer....

This is actually part two of my last post about the 1910 advertising toothbrush holder. I had found a 2nd one in my great grandfather's workshop, hidden in a rusty coffee can full of nuts, bolts and other tidbits. It is from the early 1900's in Pineville, Louisiana. The other came from Knoxville, Tennessee.

The shabby, chippy green shutter was cast out for the rubbish man, but I loved its texture and color. I thought it would be a great way to display some of my favorite bits of jewelry, now that I don't get out much to wear them often. This way, I can enjoy them when I am at home.

The top toothbrush holder is my great grandfather's, and the one in the middle is from Tennessee. I've been draping it with my glittery things. Adjacent is a huge mirror that once hung above my grandparents' mantel. Above that is an antique drying rack adorned with bracelets.
