VTT - More Powder Room!

Here we are again - more VTT, and more of my bathroom! (Hey, do ya like my purple walls?) First is the shutter I picked up at an antique store and it just happens to have a "W" on it, for my last name. I couldn't find a place to put it, so it ended up in the half-bath. You can see that it's very chippy.
Here, on my Longaberger shelf is an old ceramic canister from Czechoslovakia. It has the prettiest pale purple on it, and a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. This holds my cottonballs. Beside it is a Westmoreland swan toothpick holder that holds air (and dust)!

Don't forget to check out all the other goodies showcased today at Vintage Thingies Thursdays on Suzanne's Coloradolady blog!

I love the old cannister. It is to a set that probably contained 6 large ones and then 6 smaller, spice ones. I have some cannister sets from C. and Germany.
Thanks for sharing with us.

Ooooh. I really like that shutter!

What ever happened to putting monogrammed shutters on your house? I still see it out here occasionally, but not often. I think it was a cool trend.
