With the Christmas tree retired to the curb for recycling, I gave the whole house a 'going-over'. Those little pine needles like to get everywhere, don't they? It involved moving most, if not all, of the furniture. Rearranging things, makes everything feel fresh.
I'm thinking I either want to re-paint this vintage French cabinet, or switch it out entirely.
Change is good. The problem is, it holds quite a bit, so I hesitate to get rid of it entirely.
Lots of vintage china posies and a quite a few favored gardening books. The drawers are filled with vintage china, mostly the 'Forget-me-not' Haviland set. It used to have a white interior filled with lots of white, back in my 'white' days. But I've realized, there is such a thing as too much white. At least, for me.
The soft colors and flowers speak to me of spring.
Soon, they seem to say. But not too soon, I hope.
With temperatures in the fifties, it's hard to believe it's January in the Mid-west. Where's the snow, my friends? This weekend, I'm looking forward to heading to the antique market with the girls and to the return of Downton Abbey. Part Two starts this Sunday on PBS. Did you catch Part One last year?
