While working on the VA home, my mind is thinking about the new quilt room in Michigan, and what I am going to put in it. This three piece old kitchen cabinet has been in our screened porch, and is my only "antique". It's outside on the deck today, while the screened porch floor is getting stained. Here is the middle section:
Another picture of the middle section with the porcelain drop down section open:
I think it will go into my new quilt room, to store fabric. The drop down work area will be a great help when auditioning fabrics, don't you think?
There are two companion cabinets that go with it, one for each side of the main cabinet:
Here's the label on the back:
My husband was born in Stanton, Michigan, and the cabinet was in a house in that small town that his mother bought from the French family. I liked the cabinets, and my dear mother-in-law gave them to me. They are the start of my new quilt room design.
Here's a small doll quilt that I'm working on this week. It was inspired by a blog post that I saw (Here). The little corners are just snippets of orange that I had left over, and aren't any special size. It's 14" by 14" right now. Most of my fabric is packed away, and the black and little bits of orange were the only things here.
I cleaned out the attic space where we store our holiday decorations, and found these two noisemakers to show you today. Do any of you remember using them? We used to shake these noisy metal things as we were coming up the sidewalk, and the homeowners would come out to meet us when they heard the racket!
We would yell "Trick or Treat!", but would never even dream of "trick" - didn't even know what that meant, really. Hope you are having a great September. I am checking on Design Wall Mondays, as usual, to see what others are doing. (Here)
