I placed it in my china cabinet that still has no doors, and has not yet housed any china. I am still enjoying the country store feel it has and love displaying vintage things I find around here.
Since the cabinet is a combination of very dark walnut and wormy chestnut, I *almost* painted the back inside of the shelves, then I came across some pink, floral paper in my parents' basement, which I knew would give the cabinet the perfect vintage touch. Oh how I love it:-)
Some of my vintage items include Hazel Atlas Pink Crinoline cups and saucers, my grandfather's books, his folding measuring stick, and the large bell he rang as a school teacher to call the children in. My great grandmother's cruet set is flanked by aluminum trays my dad made in the 1950s, and a lamp that belonged to my grandmother. The vintage needlepoint below was done by a family friend.
I have been lucky to find a lot of vintage treasures right here, well... next door actually, and knowing they are all connected to my family in some way makes them more special to me.
I'm happy the typewriter has found a new home for now. Lots more vintage things have found their way into my new blue kitchen and living area. Can't wait to show those rooms!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and for leaving comments:-) I would love it if you join me on my Far Above Rubies facebook page, link at right.
