I’m cheating a lil bit on today’s #ThursdayDoors post, but it IS a door…a re-purposed door is still a door. I mean, it has a knob and everything.
This is someone’s 4-H project for the Indiana State Fair.
I think it’s adorable. Both of my girls loved it and wanted one. I can’t blame them, as I would’ve loved to have something like this when I was young.
This reminds me of when Drew and I were schoolgirls. We spent hours and hours on our appearance. Sometimes it’s hard to remember we were actually people, and not just a mass compilation of big hair, makeup, and clothes!
Drew had a vanity, but I sat a few feet away, on the floor in front of the full-length mirror on the back of her bedroom door. Those are fond memories for me. It sounds vapid, but we actually had a lot of great conversations in front of our respective mirrors. I recall a lot of music and red Solo cups fulla swate tay. I can even remember some of the clothes, most of which we left strewn about the floor…but mostly I remember the conversations.
I don’t do that now — sit in front of a mirror for hours and hours, primping. I gave it up before I even left high school. As it turns out, my mother was right, and I didn’t need all that to feel good about myself.
As I looked at this mirror, and listened to the girls ooh and ahh about it, I had a small laugh to myself. They don’t need all that to feel good about themselves, either.
Then I had another lil laugh to myself: My mother bought Sassy a vanity.
Ah, mothers, they are so wise.
Some things never change.
