Glamour Girl

What's It Wednesday #181
Do you love glamour and glitz? Old world elegance and charm? Me too! I've loved these Florentine chests for so long, and I finally found one! It's worn and aged in all the right places, and that gold gilt gives a bit of Parisian flair.


From its undulating crown


to its glass front and sides. It's a gilded treasure chest!


Each of the glass shelves is crammed with girly goodies,


towels and scents,


and of course

some vintage toiletries for sparkle and shine!


Check out her curvaceous bottom and sexy legs! Three roomy drawers for plenty of storage space.


I just love her! She's my Glamour Girl!
Hugs,
Patti

Sooner Laura said...

I love the cabinet! So gorgeous and girly too. I have a curvy curio but I bought it to fill with a giraffe collection, so no girly stuff. You made me want another one! I can't decide if I should paint mine or leave it the original gold, so for now it's staying gold.

Patti, your miss florentine, is amazing sitting right where she is demanding her space almg side a bank of beautiful mirrors.
See it's bloggers like you and Andy at Divine theatre that find some of the most gracious piece that measure up perfectly to your homes space and the collected that add even that much more to your space.

I love the Gilded dots on her lean look and bottom heavy curves, and yes, she has one set of legs that should be taken notice of....you know me, I lave a thing for furniture legs and feet :)
Love all your collections, and collected in such a way that nothing ever fights for attention over the other.

Again, her little gilded poka-dots charm me like nothing else, did anyone add that those dots add to her personality? Well I sure noticed.

See you soon dear,
Off to visit that cute blue cottage home tour.

Lots of love this Sunday Morn.

Darling PATTI! HELLO!

Dearest one, I am so sorry to be late in my visit; school started this week and if I don't get up by 3:30am to get my morning routine started, I get a tad late to school! THANK YOU for visiting my post, and I love that CABINET! I've always wanted one like this and maybe if I find the right one, I'll get it to exchange the 1940s cabinet in dark wood that houses my treasures!

ENJOY YOUR DAY! Oh, do you still teach? Anita
