the ultimate altar

hey guys, happy monday. i’ve been goofing around tonight collecting pics, you know how we do! i love pinning cause it gets me out of my head and into a fantasy frame of mind.  tonight i honed in the vanity.

the variety of vanities is as varied as anything else, but somehow it’s a little more personal. where else can you claim complete domain over your territory and have a place where everything you use each day is where you left it? (don’t forget this is a fantasy)!

some are extravagant, but they can be as bohemian as they are luxe

it’s a place to call your very own. a world unto itself, completely self sufficient requiring only a chair, table and mirror.

each is as individual as the woman who runs it

yes it’s a luxury but an easy one to fit into any boudoir.

in fact, let’s face it, what’s a boudoir without one?

it’s a tranquil place to  start each day.

i hope to get a flat surface myself one day soon

this one was made from an old frame below:

oooh these photogs, i could eat them up!

choosing the right style is the trickiest part. till then, a mirror and table will do, it doesn’t take much to get the ball rolling and every little addition is like a little piece of artwork being added to a beautiful living sculpture!

what starts out the same becomes completely different depending on the gal. but one thing’s for sure, it’s your very own universe and something you really don’t share, unlike anyplace else in the house and that’s kind of sacred.

well the clock is striking midnight so that’s my cue. more tomorrow,  bonne nuit!
