Presidents’ Day Cabinet

I don’t know about the President’s rotating cabinet, but I am so so so in love with my new China cabinet.

Have I mentioned my extreme love for Facebook Marketplace?! I have found so many treasures on that site – and am learning to be patient and wait for the good stuff.

A few days ago I saw this cabinet on FB and jumped at it. I *think* it matches my grandmother’s corner China cabinet that my parents have in their dining room. (And yes, I called my father and told him to put my name on a post-it note and attach it to the back of it!) -ha!

We went to pick it up this morning. The man who sold it to us did an AMAZING job of wrapping it up tightly. I am so very thankful for that (and have given him a high rating on Marketplace because of it.)

After cleaning and buffing it (I’ll talk more about that in a separate post), I began filling it with some odds and ends. I didn’t put all of my dishes in there because I wanted some variety. I’ve mentioned before that I’ve been collecting transferware dishes this year so I put some of that inside as well.

Then I took the opportunity to snap some other pictures of our main living area. We are really enjoying this little California cottage. People have asked me before what my home decor style is and quite honestly, I don’t know. If there’s a mash-up of colonial/primitive/cottage/contemporary – then that’s it. 😀 We are constantly trying to simplify. In some corners we are okay. In others, not so much. It’s an ongoing process, right??

Walking in our front door you see this…

Here’s a quick walk through of the living room- dining room area…

Another thing –
I ordered some embroidered sheers for the dining room window but they are VERY MUCH on probation! I am ordering another pair to see if I like those better. For now, I’m calling these my RBG sheers since they look like her collars. -ha!!

Thanks for indulging me with a zillion pictures of our new baby (who, as it appears on the back, was born in 1951.)

Here’s to Presidents’ Day cabinets!!
