All Old and special
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 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!!~
