Antique Top Hat and Bedroom Vignette

I finally got my hands on an antique top hat. I’ve wanted one for a long time, so I’m thrilled.  I’m displaying it on my dress mannequin with my wedding veil.

It came in this hat box. I guess it’s German. I love the graphics!

And… I made this little Steampunk pocket watch to display a wedding picture. That was 19 years ago! Wow… Where did the time go?

This is the latest vignette on top of the chest in my bedroom. What is a vignette? In reference to decorating, it means an artful grouping. A group of objects that look nice, when displayed together.

Most of the vignettes in my house include books, candles and picture frames. I also use tons of apothecary jars.

I still have the same Santos and my Wedding Album.

This sketch is from Brian Froud. I’ve had it since I was in high school. Brian Froud is the author of the famous FAERIES book. He also designed Yoda from Star Wars.

My antique trophy holds some old French documents, some sheet music, a welcome letter from Princess Tiana when I visited her royal guest room at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort, and the Elder Wand from Harry Potter that my son bought me as a souvenir from Universal Studios.

Next, I’ll share the top of my dresser.
