I love having little vignettes set up in various corners/tabletops/shelves around the house. It's such fun for the eyes to fall upon a little story nestled into a nook or cranny of the home - particularly when it's set for a purpose. Take this re-purposed frame & mirrored tray... I could only wish that my dresser/vanity looked so pretty.
Alas, it's just a lovely dream, because if it did I bet it would only last 5 minutes before the cat jumped up & knocked everything all over the place (he has a penchant for sitting a top my dresser & peaking out the window).
