Christmas Vanity

What's it Wednesday #145


Apparently, my daughter has been bitten by the Christmas spirit of decorating. She decided that we should decorate her vanity, so decorate it we did. This antique vanity is very special to me. It once belonged to my grandmother when she was a little girl. Now it belongs to my little princess. I found the doll dresser that sits on top at an antique store. Victoria stores her barbie clothes in there. 

Victoria was very specific about what she wanted and where she wanted it. I wonder where she gets that from? 

She went to the book shelf and choose the book that would be on display next to the vanity. We display books on plate racks. 


My little Christmas princess chose all of her favorite Santa Clauses to put on display. 

She asked me to place the cranberry wreath at the top of the mirror. I think she got that idea from the wreath on top of a mirror in another room of the house. She grabbed two small Christmas trees but was only able to fit one. She was very happy with her Christmas Vanity. I think her Great-Grandmother would be very pleased. Phew...so glad she didn't ask for Christmas lights. Shhhhhhh!

What Christmas decorating are the kids in your life up to?

your grandmother's dresser is beautiful. Obviously Victoria got the decorating "bug" from you. She is well on her way to house decorating I think. Have a lovely lead up to Christmas, and thank you so much for hosting.
