What's Old is New Again

Hello friends.  How are you today?  Thank you all for your visits and sweet comments lately.  If I haven't responded to your comment, please forgive me as life has been busy for me. I wanted to share something with you.


I found this antique glass front cabinet.  It has a wonderful worn and weathered patina on it and is great for displaying some of my favorite things.  I was so excited to find it and knew it would be perfect in my home.  Would you like to see some of the things inside?








It's been so much fun filling the cabinet.  Everything in there I already had with the exception of the china doll head (she is new to me).  I get such satisfaction switching things up in my home.  It gives new life to my "stuff".   I know that I'll probably be rearranging things often and that for me is the fun part.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

xo,
Danielle

I love the glass front cabinet-I need a chippy one for my dining room to store my table cloth collection. I just love your fun vintage things inside-the clock in the cloche, the linens, old shoes, picture frames. It will be fun to switch out even with some vintage seasonal items!
