Goodbye Old- Hello New

Vintage yellow hutch 

Time to unload

New thrift store find...Antique cabinet

It's huge and beautiful

Still some work to do

     It was in July 2012 when I first laid eyes on my first vintage hutch. I wouldn't necessarily choose the color yellow however this one was reminiscent of ones you'd find in Tuscany or Provence. In fact it reminded me of something you'd find in a home of the 1960's. As you can see I've had it for 3 years now and frankly I don't ever see myself parting with it.

     And recently I came across what I lovingly refer to as "the beast"...this beautiful antique cabinet. I was immediately smitten with its' intricate detail on the top and the feet.  You know that feeling that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity and you contemplate it and go back and look at it. Well I did that a couple of time and fortunately was able to get it for a "song and a dance". That means cheap! 

     I will admit that I miss the yellow hutch (it's in the garage) but I'm having fun decorating my latest find. I think all I want to add it an big white tassel on the skeleton key and that's it. 

     Thank you dropping by and until next time happy collecting and thrifting...
