Sweet Trinkets

I decided to grab my camera again today and photograph a few new pretties at home. It begins with Chanel Mademoiselle, the most beautiful fragrance of all, and not at all new but rather close to depletion yet still pretty enough to add to the glitzy mix. Closest I'll ever come to Chanel.

This magnificent little number was a mere $3.50! It's as lovely on as it is off.

I've had these tiny perfume jars since I lived in South Africa (at least 18 years - is that possible?!). They're quite irresistible. The necklace is an amazing find from a nearby boutique.

Definitely a statement piece in exotic gold and amber - bohemian beautiful.

The vintage mirrored tray was a treasure found within the boxes of discards in my mother's basement. So perfect for displaying those extra special jewels, only enhanced as their reflections shimmer back and forth.


  1. Chanel.....I've been wearing Chanel No. 5 since I was 18 years old! Many happy memories come along with that scent!:-) Beautiful post!!


  2. Thank you! I first smelled this on a lady sitting in front of me at a ballet I attended in Monterrey, Mexico, of all places. It was the only time I've ever been brave enough to tap a shoulder and ask what she was wearing. I was 19 ... so a long time too. :)


Thanks for reading!
