As a gal living in a cramped Chicago apartment (with a hubby and two cats), it's important that I have a place all my own (you know, to keep all my "girly" things organized!). The dressing table in my bedroom was passed down to me from my grandmother and is full of things from her home, as well, from the gold framed mirror to the wooden trinket box to the old hat pin holder...
They are sentimental, and useful (great for storing nail polish, makeup, and jewelry). I also put up a metal hook rack from Anthropologie to keep my necklaces organized and handy!
Any other readers out there want to share??
