There are some things, every once in a while, you find yourself falling in love with...(so to speak) and your eye starts spotting them...(when you are a thrifter).
One of those "things", for me, is a mirrored tray. They do go way back. Most of us probably had a grandma who had at least one on her dresser with her atomizer perfume misters sitting on it.
I have collected a number of them over the years in my thrifting ventures, and still find some occasionally. They are scattered throughout the nest. *One of mine got broken in the move from NC to Iowa, but that's okay. :-) This post is just a picture show of those trays. It reveals to YOU something about me.
I DO like mirror trays. :-)
These two sit on my dresser.
I LOVE the blue opaque glass and design of this one! some of my earrings are tossed here everyday.
hand creams and lotions
This pretty little one is on my bedside table.
The next two are on the Master Bath vanity.
The next two are NOT trays...but I WILL use framed mirrors, sometimes...like a tray.
This one is on the wicker stand in the bath.
This one is a catch-all "tray" in the back hall nook.
**SO if you don't happen to have mirrored trays, you can still substitute a pretty framed mirror!
Hall guest bath
This one is a recent find. It shouted at me from an upper shelf in the Cedar Rapids Salvation Army store. I do LIKE it.
It is different in that the edge is an open scallop design...a little more vintage I think! **(those tonic/bitters bottles were also at the SA store the same visit)

Dining Room Hutch - I L*O*V*E me my plaid Scotty Dog salt/peppers... (I have Scotch-Irish in my heritage)
Dining Room- on my "heritage photo table." I shall have to do a post on those photos soon. THIS tray is my largest 22 inches...Salvation Army store in Charlotte. It belonged to the Aunt of the checkout gal, Mary (my sweet friend!) and she had it stored in a closet for years, and finally just turned it in to the store. She told me all this when I purchased it!
How about you? Do you like to use trays for display and holding items? Some of my trays are NOT mirrored.
If you thrift, Keep your eyes peeled...these old trays DO appear here and there. Maybe they will "shout" out to you, too! :-)
Another e-post to reveal a little about ME....what makes me tick...what I love...
Hugs to ALL visiting. Stay warm in this wintry weather...Think Spring while you hibernate in the cold...
