Show & Tell








I'm late, I'm late. I feel like Alice in Wonderland. The day goes by so fast, doesn't it? I wanted to try my hand at show & tell for the first time. I decided to show an old, very old china cabinet I found at an estate sale about 20 years ago. It was about 100 years old then. A retired gentlemen said it had belonged to his mother, which was now deceased. Sad to see him have to part with her things.

It has held everything from my children's music trophies, china to now bath towels in our bathroom.

It has the beveled glass and grooves for plates. It locks on the top and bottom of the doors.

That is a beautiful cabinet! I'm sure the older man would be happy to know that you have enjoyed it so much over the years. It's a wonderful keepsake!

What a find! It's sad to think of something like that slipping away from someone's family! That would kill me if that had happened to some of my grandmother's stuff! I am always on the lookout for an antique Barrister's Bookcase. I think I'll have to hit an estate sale, I'd probably get a better deal on one!
