I came home from work today and decided to tackle the empty china cabinet in the living room.
It's been sitting empty since I took all the Christmas stuff down. I like to change all the items in my cabinets a few times a year. When I find that I am so used to whatever is in them that I do not even notice the items anymore, I make a change.
I opened the bottom door of the cabinet and saw these peach lustre dishes. I decided to pull them out and spend a few months enjoying them. I needed an accent color and noticed the yellow teapot and vaseline candlesticks--voila! I had an accent color.
A little more digging deeper into the cabinet and I found some yellow/gold flowers, copper beads and a crocheted doily that my great grandmother made. The doily went on top of the cabinet, where it sits all alone until I become inspired to find some large items to put up there. I may have to case the basement to find somthing suitable.
My old coppered baby shoes were also inside the cabinet. I pulled them out, too.
Here's the copper beads and an old ladies glove (I buy those whenever I come across them. Can you imagine wearing them every time you went out?)
I found all of these items just by standing in front of the china cabinet, bending down and pulling things out from behind the closed doors. The funny thing is, it's still full behind those doors!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
