The Little White China Cabinet

The Little White China Cabinet
A few months ago my generous sister-in-law e-mailed me asking me if I would like her little white cabinet.  She thought it would look pretty in the cottage.  I was so pleased and we finally managed to drive to her lovely home about 45 minutes from the cottage to pick it up last weekend. 
I am still moving things about deciding what looks best.
I added some lace and a little crystal at the top,
and a tiny chandelier,
Teapots, starfish and a teacup.
A birdie, birdcage and decorative plate and of course another crystal on the handle.
I haven't yet decided what looks best on the bottom shelf.
Unfortunately the fireplace needs painting and a makeover and it takes away from the beauty of the cabinet.
My sister-in-law also gave me a box of her favourite Romantic Homes Magazines (Yippee!!!!),
And a pretty turquoise Paragon teacup.  She also wanted me to have one of her precious and treasured Royal Copenhagen teacups (which I will feature at a later date).

Isn't it a beauty?
Thank you dear Stephanie!   I do love it all!

  5. Hi Karen,
    I like your white cabinet and what you put in it. And the touch of ocean blue looks so nice with all the white. It makes me think of the beach, and I love the beach! Your lamp is cute, that shade reminds me of a Chinese lantern.
    Have a nice weekend,
