The wooden teacart is one of the furniture pieces that I recently brought into the dining room. I almost put it in my booth, but I am so very glad that I didn’t. I keep a stack of plates on the bottom shelf and it’s so much easier to set the table now.
Here are some special things that I have displayed on the cart right now. I am sure that it will see a lot of changes in the future.
Can you tell that I don’t follow the “less is more” attitude???
For the seven years that we have been in this house, I only used a painting on this wall.
I thought that a piece of furniture would ‘argue’ with the recessed china cabinet, but I think it’s fine.
And, it is so much fun to accessorize!!!
I made two of these dried floral arrangement six years ago to use on
each upside down, wire planter that I used as shelves in the dining room.
Here you can see the ‘before’ arrangement.
I didn’t need the second one anymore, so I took it apart and used
some of the stems to fill in the one I am using on the teacart.
I also needed it to be shorter so I took out the tall pussy willow stems.
I like to keep fresh flowers on the cart
Our gardenia bushes are full of buds and blooms. They smell so delicious.
Aren’t old leather books wonderful?
I used a couple as a riser for my favorite bust.
Old books are great for use as decorative items.
I know some folks think that books should be for reading only.
I can’t wait to start reading“Properties of Engineering Materials”
This little copper container is the perfect place to keep silverware.
Love the image on this tole planter that I used for the dried floral arrangement
These are vintage, cut glass pieces that I use for floral arrangements.
The little pitcher cost $1.00 from a thrift store. (I am using it for the gardenias)
The sugar bowl is from the boxes of goodies that sister #4 sent for me to sale in my booth.
Some of those pretties are just never going to make it that far!
