The cabinet I bought at Big Lots a few years back because I needed something to put a TV in for another house. I really liked the black, distressed finish and painted some other furniture to go with it. It is now in a corner of my dining room and will soon be replaced by the corner china cabinets my husband is building:-)
Here is a closeup of some of the detail around the top...
Above it I placed this Moroccan handpainted shelf I bought at World Market also a few years ago. I actually had it hanging upside down before I figured out that it goes this way...
On it, I have put a few of my favorite things. My mom brought this doll to me from Greece in 1974. It has always been special! The large coffee pot is from India and just decorative.
The coffee pot is from Turkey and perfect for making a cup of Turkish coffee!
I thought I would show a couple different lighting options as I have this beautiful brass candle holder from Lebanon. My mom also brought this back from her Mediterranean cruise. It was made from brass shells. She keeps telling me to clean it but I really like the patina it has this way!
The handpainted plate is one of three that I bought in Turkey. You can find them on ebay if you search for "Turkish plates." The blue glass came from Venice. I had toured one of the glass making places and couldn't pass this up. I love, love this color blue. The little wooden box, I bought in Bosnia.
That's my little corner of the Mediterranean! I'll have to show you what's inside the cabinet sometime! Then we can visit Japan and Germany! Until then, thanks for stopping by:-) Don't forget to go by Marty's and see some wonderful vignettes. Please leave a comment, if you like, so I can visit you!
