Touch of Vintage…

Love what a little vintage touch of vintage can do to a room.  Somehow it just brings warmth into a room without even trying to hard. Is it the history of a piece that has been loved by someone once before? Whatever it is – I can’t get enough of it!

This oval silver piece was found at the Monroe 1st Annual Main street Flea Market!  It called to me just as I was leaving a booth – buried under other treasures!   You know one of those booths you have to just stand in the middle of and turn in circles because there is so much too see and you missed it the first time around?


I was excited when I found it because it looked to be large enough to set on my counter in the Master Suite bathroom in-between the sinks.  I recently emptied my apothecary jars of bath salts and replaced those with bathroom necessities i.e. soaps, cotton swabs and pads. Figured the apothecary jars could sit on top of the oval silver tray to bring a little charm into the room. 


The tray fit perfectly on the countertop and even has room for a few candles or something small. So very exciting & so pretty!


Thanks for peeking over at this little addition to my Master Suite! To see what I am linking to this week – please check my “Cottage Links” label…xoxo, tracie

Oh my goodness, I have the exact same silver (plated) tray! Was going to get rid of it as I hate having to polish it. Does yours ever look cute in your bathroom!

Beautiful. I must say it is an inspired idea. I don;t think it would have occurred to me to use a silver tray in the bathroom. It looks lovely. Hugs!
