VTT - Powder Room

Click me, click me, click me!


Let's step into the Powder Room this fine Vintage Thingies Thursday!
My dh got me this sandwich tray a long time ago and I never used it because I'm not really a turquoise type of gal. But once I had my purple bathroom in place, this fit in perfectly! The bottom is marked "Hand Painted Nippon". The apple blossoms are so delicately painted.
The pink plastic box is one from the 50's/60's. I forget what was originally in them, but I keep Q-tips in mine.

Now - go to Coloradolady to see what everyone else is featuring today!

Oops - I forgot the close up of the pink box! I had to darken it to show the features.

How beautful, your tray is a real gem. Hand Painted Nippon just adds to the value of it.
But coming from Hubby makes it even better.

Oh.... I remember my grandmother having one of those pink boxes in her bathroom and if I'm not mistaken, there were qtips in hers as well!

Very cool.

Beautiful tray...what a lovely bathroom you must have!

Liz said...

Okay... I'm going out on a limb here...could the pink box have been for ...dare I say... Cigarettes???
Perfect now for q-tips or any other feminine item one might want to put on the back of the toilet... :)
Love the tray!!!
