Look What I Found...

I have been looking for a Hoosier cabinet for ever and last week there was a sale down the street with every thing vintage and wonderful. I could not belief it when I saw the cabinet, I called Charlie and he said go for it. I  worked on getting the price down but she was firm with the price of $400.00 which I agreed on.
The cabinet is now sitting in my dining room looking quite grand in its splendor.  This picture would have been better if I also would have been standing straight., I think I need a tripod for my pictures    It was such fun to decorate I had a lot of old tins and vintage items to use also looking forward to the seasonal decorations I can use in the fall and winter months..   I should not even think about the up coming months, and just enjoy the cabinet in the good old summer time.   
 I have so much storage in the cabinet which I need living in a small condo.  We have 2 bedrooms and two baths with an open kitchen, living room and dining room. with a small sun room.  I was worried about the size of the cabinet but knew I could make it work some how.
  I will be back soon with pictures of the other rooms in my little cottage.
   Till Later.           Sharon K
