Twyla on Tuesday

Hello dear friends!
Last week I shared with you the old cupboard
that we moved to the living room.
This week I am debuting my brand new (old)

I saw this in a favorite antique store.
The first time it was separated and sitting apart. I thought each piece
was pretty neat.

The next time I went back, they had put the smaller
piece on top and I was in love!
Not only was it adorable, but it came in two small
pieces that I could get in my back seat in two separate trips!
It seemed meant to be!

I had hoped I could bring it home and let it fill up
slowly, but alas, it was crowded in no time.
Too many pretties.  Hey, I'm not complaining.

I so love the look of the white in my living room.
It brightened it up so much and is just perfect
for summer time decorating.

You can pretty much tell what I like to collect.
Everything I have is old.
The way I like it.

I hope you have enjoyed my little reveal.
Thank you for dropping by today!
Have a joyful day!

Hi Twyla:
I love your new cabinet! It's just perfect for all the beautiful things you collect. The white really shows everything off, too. Thanks for sharing.
Hope you have a nice day, my friend.

What a great piece!! The old hinges and latches are fun! And I always have to enlarge the photos to see all the wonderful things you have displayed... love the biscuit jar over on the right side! And your kitties are really cute. I need a long narrow picture like that to hang on my family room wall. (over the tv...I have too much blank space up there.)

What a great find! It looks so nice with all your pretty things in it.

Shelley said...

It's a wonderful cupboard and you have graced it so nicely with your collectibles...Old is so much better...than the new "made in China" stuff....its lovely and speaks of a much better America when things were made and sold right here in our own great Country and benefited our own people....blessings

This is just the most wonderful old hutch with so much character I adore this and what you put into it.

Love your cupboard and all your pretties! Barney is such a cutie! Love the pic below of him!


PS I love your Etsy shop too!

Angela said...

That's what they call a marriage made in heaven. The two pieces are better together than separate. It would look great with anything, but looks perfect with your pinks.

Pamela said...

Well hello ladies! Absolutely love, love, love your posts....grabbed your button for my blog! What beautiful findings and details, I will visit often. :)

Claudia said...

Twyla, that cupboard is unbelievably charming! What a wonderful, wonderful find. And filled with all sorts of vintage loveliness.

That hutch reminds me of an old hoosier. You're lucky to have it!

I love the new display piece, so pretty! I wanted to let you know that Matthew is back in the USA as of today : ) What a long year it has been. Thank you so much for all of your kindness and support during his time in Iraq, it means so much.
