Displaying Collections....

I love seeing how other people display their collections....so today I'm sharing some of mine. I have collected a lot of vintage vanity items over the years and the shelves in my bathroom make a great place for me to display some of them! 
I've always been drawn to old perfume bottles and toiletries, and pretty vintage boxes.....there's just something about them.....

 Now days, you rarely find products in such lovely bottles and packaging....maybe that's what makes the older ones so special...

 I also collect vintage china creamers, small pitchers, and handled sugar dishes, especially if they have sprays of roses on them.....this teal blue-green one is my newest addition....

This little white shelf hangs over the vanity area of my bathroom, and it's identical to the one that hangs in my living room, (you may remember it, if you've stopped by my blog before). My husband helped me make them from old corbel brackets we found....he did the putting together part and I painted them.....

I love old needlework embroidery too, it is one of the many things I like to look for and collect....the cute doggie one above always makes me smile.....below are a  few of my favorite embroidered tea towels that I've displayed over the chicken wire doors of my shabby white shelf that's above my tub.....this spot makes for a great place for me to put more of my vanity items too....












Well, I hope you had fun seeing some of my collections, and how I've displayed them...do you collect vanity items from bygone days?  It seems like they are becoming more hard to find these days.
If not, what are you drawn to while out hunting for treasures? I'd love to know!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great day....we'll talk again soon!
