Handmade Vintage Girls Vanity Dresser.....

I've done quite a bit this week; you might of heard that I now have two child free days a week with school being back and I'm using those days as work days to solely focus on my business and blog. Up until now I have done everything around having the kids at home, so I made the most of my two days this week and I refocused, did some planning, cleaned and sorted stock, took photos, listed items and more. I also spent some time looking at other ways to get myself and my stock out there to the people, on top of the other things I've been doing for a while. 

If there's one thing I have learnt over the last few years trying to run my business is that sometimes you need to try all sorts of methods and avenues to find what works best for you and your business. So we will see how we go over coming weeks and months, but as always I'll just take a deep breath and give things a shot.


Anyway I wanted to show you this sweetie (which is now for sale) it's a lovely old handmade dresser drawer with mirror that I can only imagine some father or grandfather lovingly made for some little lady in their life. The dresser drawers are a recent find which I initially missed because at first glance (I didn't take in the fact it had a mirror) because I just thought it was a plain set of drawers.

I've married the vintage dusty pink wooden children's fold out chair with the dresser, as it seems like a sweet combination and a perfect height for a little one to sit at. The Holly Hobbie decorative wall tile and egg shape Holly Hobbie Paperweight are new additions to the growing supply of vintage Holly Hobbie items I have available now or soon to be.

My little Sarah is very much the girly girl and it's very tempting to keep the dresser for her, she's got quite a collection of treasures and bits and bobs she could place in those little drawers. But if I kept everything I have a longing vintage pang over, I'd be caught under stuff here.

Ahh, those drawers are so pretty... But you're right, if we kept everything we love, we'd be up to our eyes in STUFF! xxx
