See this dresser? It is part of my “woman cave.” I have a right to call it a woman cave, because David and I have been sleeping in separate rooms since May. I just love getting more sleep and having my very own space.

You will note the five vases, which are rarely used. I am reluctant to discard or donate them, mainly because they are just too damn pretty. They were gifts; I did not buy them.
The three flashlights were purchased in case there is a power outage at night. David also has a flashlight in his room, and there is another one in the family room. We are definitely prepared!
And those stacks of bills? The bills on the left are mine to pay, and the bills on the right are David’s. Since we have separate bank accounts, we reconcile the amounts we pay for things like electricity, water, and landscaping and determine at the end of the month how much we owe each other. Sometimes, he owes me money or vice-versa.
Note the dearth of cosmetics on my dresser. I don’t wear make-up, cream, moisturizer, or sunscreen. I just wash my face with Ivory soap and water and try to stay out of the sun.
And that’s my Bernini leather handbag on the far left. It’s the only one I use. I don’t understand why some women own so many handbags, when one is sufficient.
So, what’s on top of your dresser?
P.S. What’s on my shelves? Top: Iron and hats. Bottom: Electric wok, paper cutter, Kleenex, and pills.
PPS. The mirror reflects my wallpapered accent wall and a painting by my artist-friend, Flo Miyahira, of her white poodle.
