Shown below in another vintage frame from my collection is a card that's an "oldie" from Mary Engelbreit (1979). I told you I have been a fan of hers for a LONG time! Let's Make Up:
I found this cute pin at a thrift store for $1.00. She's putting on her make-up, too. There really is a little mirror, not sure if you can tell in the picture:
And I found this make-up bag here in the house inside of a drawer. Never used, I think it's from the 70's or so:
I love this Norman Rockwell Post cover. The guy on the left reminds me of Stan Laurel. Sorry I couldn't fit the whole thing on my scanner - you should never miss a detail in Rockwell's work. That's a plunger under his arm. Did you notice the lovely Ransburg wastebasket!? And the poor little Pekingese is going "What on earth are you two doing at Mom's vanity table?"
I used to always put my make-up on at my vanity table, an old waterfall style with a huge round mirror. I still have it but it wouldn't fit in the bedroom here at this house. I bought it in Sebastopol years ago. I kind of miss it.

I remember that vanity, too! It fit in your little mobile home, but not in the room you have now?? That's too bad.... I always thought it must've made you feel like a movie star sitting there!

Hi, Heidi Ann! I've always admired vanities although I've never had one. I don't know if I could actually sit down while putting on make up!

I love Norman's work, too.

I mention you on my blog today! ♥
