eau de Toilette ( Dresser Accessories)

    Of all the items we have  from our family, most of them are  usually silver or sterling. I do not know how many times, I have admired a sterling comb and brush set, and the owner would say,"that was my mother." Or how about a dresser jar or pin tray? I have always had a thing for these little goodies. I have a big  pile, in all my guest rooms. The onces I am sharing with you in this post are found on a Victorian Marble top dresser in my blue guest room. I love this setting , as above there is a wonderful painting of a beautiful young girl with roses at her bust. The dresser items, are  flanked on one side ,by a pair of German Bisque figures, of Romeo and Juliet and the other by a painted Gone With The Wind oil lamp.In  the back ground  there is a wonderful framed French Folding Fan with feather trim. The bed  in this room, faces this dresser, and when my guest wake up ,they see this wonderful grouping and on each side of it, is a  window with a breathtaking view, of the Mighty Mississippi River.This type of collection is always fun to add to. It is easy to pick up a little special item on a trip or just at a local tag sale. They are at there best when they are all polished. You all, are  very lucky, as I shined them just for this post.

Used by Victorian ladies daily.

The workmanship is beautiful on items of that period.

 A  very special piece.

French 18th century hand painted fan with feather trim.

German bisque statues of Rameo and Juilet.

One of my favorite paintings.

Notice how the boarder matches the girls dress in the painting.
   Stop by any time for a tour. I will leave the porch light on. And Sissy Dog will meet you with a jump and a kiss.
