We love Old things, have you figured that out yet? Last night we had some friends over and we were sitting around our pub playing games having a ball. One friend said to us, “what I love about you guys and your home is everything has a story and has meaning”! Well that is true for the most part.
Let me show you a cabinet in which I have never shown you before. Not sure why, I think because it is tucked in a corner, as we have NO space for it anywhere else. This 1940’s piece we scored at an antique shop in South Florida. We were in our first home, really did not have a lot of extra money at the time. We loved the style, the color and that it would have a purpose for our dishes. At a price of $350.00 we thought that was pretty good for an old curio cabinet, and we knew we would have it forever.
Now pardon the mess inside. I have a beautiful collection of dishes, and some gorgeous tea cups that my FIL just handed down to us. THey were his Mom’s and they are all very old and beautiful.
I really need to take everything out and rearrange this cabinet…it is on my to do list
These truly are the prettiest tea cups I have ever seen.
THis old picture we just scored a couple of weeks ago….$20.00, we love the scene and the frame.
Next week I will share with you a fun game we played at our PUB last night…it of course had special meaning, and we let our friends participate in the ceremony.
I want to thank all of you for the support and friendship you have shown me. Some I had no idea cared as much, however, your personal emails, and kind words were all so touching. I have found the balance I so need. Obviously as you can see I am posting in moderation, and that was the KEY for me. I am glad those three weeks away you did not forget me, and rip me off your blog roll HA!!~
