Hello, fellow vintage aficionados! I’m so sorry I haven’t been posting—I’ve been tied up with work. (Work = money to spend on purses!) I promise to get back to my regularly scheduled posting, but, in the meantime, thought you might enjoy these two photos. The first one is a sub-collection of mine: vintage lipstick mirrors. I have others strewn about the house, but this is the bulk of my collection. My favorite is the pink-and-blue rhinestone-encrusted beauty on the right. Also on my vintage vanity, partly pictured, is an old pin cushion next to a pair of '50s red polka-dot gloves. On the left, you can barely see the corner of my framed wedding invitation from (gasp!) 1985. Scroll down for my comments on the second photo.

Remember when I joked about the bipartisanship of my wicker donkey and elephant purses? They were on my vanity chair, but I'd moved them aside so I could take some pictures. When I looked over at them, I realized they were leaning next to each other, grinning as if they were best of friends. Had to capture it for you.

Those mirrors are beautiful, and your donkey and elephant purses look like they're the best of pals. So sweet.

I'm always looking for lipstick mirrors, but I don't like to spend more than a couple of bucks, so I hardly ever get them on eBay, because the cost PLUS shipping charges are ridiculous. The blue and pink rhinestone one--my fave--I found at a thrift store. I think it was $2. SHINY!
