A Duchess story.....

I have a duchess or a dressing table,as it is called by many names, but I have one!
So you are wondering what the big deal is. I have never had one since I have had daughters. Now for those of you with daughters probably have an understanding of this. As each daughter grew into her own bedroom I would have to get them a duchess. Over the years I found some lovely ones at the second hand shops.
This one is my favorite though. It needs a paint job but that is O.K. I have a draw for every thing now and all is organized. I even have a draw for my jewelery (below) under this is all my bangles. What can I say I love accessories.

What I don't have though is a bed!!!!!!!!!!!
While moving the furniture around I pulled on my bed and BANG...It was a metal four poster. Greg had welded this bed up many times over the years when we would end up on the floor. I refused to part with it, this time I have no choice.

But I do have a duchess and we can't have every thing. Making it is a whole other story but if any one asks I am having a Japanese phase and sleeping on the
Well must get to work as it is getting late, have a great day.


  1. Mandy, I love it! When I was a little girl I wanted one of those, but never had one. I would still love to have one, but I think they are pretty expensive here in the US. Glad you got one!


  2. Mandy,
    You made me chuckle when I read that you're having a "Japanese phase."

    And then it made me wonder if my Japanese student would rather have his mattress on the floor, too. Hmmm, maybe I should ask him!


  3. I love your white Duchess, and all the white you have, it looks so classy.
    I've slept on the floor, but not because a bed collapsed... smile, probably when we were moving or had moved.
