SHOW AND TELL
"VINTAGE VANITY SET ~ GONE GLAM"


I thought I would give it a go at trying to make some hand built roses. I was having so much fun, I just kept making them.

A lovely vanity set had the perfect place to add these pastel pretties. Although the Perfume Bottles and Jewelry Box had roses embossed on them already, I thought adding my own roses would give it a special touch. Once finished, I softly added creamy white paint to the entire set, giving it what I like to call the "Ice Cream" look.

Unfortunately pictures do not do this set justice. I took them about a hundred times. Inside and outside the house. This was the best I could do. I hope you enjoy my newest treasure. You can find it HERE if you are interested in purchasing it.
