Wow.

For some reason, this simple vignette just made my day...it's beautiful. The polka-dot oilcloth to protect the wallpaper, the pretty little mirror, the special shelf for the comb. Love it. Again, just because you're poor doesn't mean you have to live in squalor.

Shelf above the counter

Can you decipher what's stamped on the shelf hanging under the mirror?
