Vintage Thingies Thursday: Ancient Armoire

Several years ago, Bob and I went to Dothan, Alabama, looking for a brewery he had heard about. The brewery was out of business, but there were plenty of antique stores to visit. I found this beautiful armoire, and we decided it would look perfect in our dressing room. I am not an expert, but I can tell it is vintage. Below is a picture of the decorations I have on placed on top. The books are works of Jane Austen. They are old, but the other items are relatively new.
If you would like to participate in Vintage Thingies Thursdays you need to get yourself on over to this wonderful blog, Confessions of an Apron Queen.

I'm sure he was just as happy to go to antique stores as a brewery. LOL not sure if my husband would have been happy about that.

It's gorgeous, and the books are a perfect touch.

That's a beautiful armoire and your display on top is lovely. I love Jane Austen too. We were in Bath, England last year and went to her house (now a museum about her.)
