I went with an art dealer friend of mine from Sun Valley Idaho to this huge antique show that shows and sells exclusively America Old West Antiques including these humongous (I mean 25ft x 15ft)Hand painted circus posters from the day when a circus was a circus….I am a bit off the track but I (who was born in Texas and tell no one! - I hate being a Little Cowgirl) after
3 days found myself drawn into all of it. It really was fascinating.
I brought the coolest corkscrew back. It was from an old saloon, imagine what went on around that corkscrew. Do you think someone like Miss Kitty from Gun Smoke used it?
The corkscrew hangs on the wall in my kitchen and people always comment on it.
Ok, back to the topic…..
I also bought some Cowboy Eye Doctors traveling medical box that he would have carried all the lenses in for exams.
It is designed in such a way that it has about 12 drawers , each measuring 5.5” W x 1.5”H x 13” D. The finished height of the piece is about 14”.
It has this great masculine leather handle on it.
I bought it thinking I would sell it to one of my clients.
When I got it home I was just sitting around starring at it and wondering if it would work well as a make-up box on my dresser.
YEP!! It certainly did.
Since then countless other women that I have worked for and with have all adopted this
Design Idea. It completely un-clutters your dressing area and keeps everything tidy and organized. I am not an organized person in the least. I love this thing.
You can find tiny little chests at craft shows, flea market, overstock .com and orientalfurniture.com, marshalls, tj max, ross….the list is endless.
Ladies, ( and you know who you are )
