Simple Tray Vignette

I hadn't changed the dresser vignette in quite a while, so with my new found silver vanity set, I was inspired to come up with something new.

 I think this was such a fabulous Goodwill find and for $5.95, a super steal.  Beautiful silver and ivory on the comb.

I added a few favorite things from around the house.

 Simple and uncluttered arrangement.

A crystal clock and dish to hold my everyday jewelry were both Goodwill finds and add some elegance to the vignette.

 I love how a tray makes all the different items one cohesive unit.
I love to use trays, I just need to find some more that are really different.  They can be a huge accent all on their own.

So how do you use trays and which ones are your favorite?

Don't forget, the Summer Showcase of Homes is in full swing this week.  Check my sidebar for the full listing of homes.
