I am the one person in our extended family who people feel is a "junk collector". Anytime anyone see's a vintage item they say "oh I bet Ann would like that!". Well it has paid off for me numerous times. The last two beautiful bird cages I have is because a sister or two saw one in a garage sale. They wouldn't put them in their house but they know I will. Should that make me feel funny or bad? I SAY NO.
This is an old printers cabinet, when my brother-in-laws business was re-building, these were in the basement and they we're throwing them out. Up came my name again "Ann" and he called me and asked if I wanted it.
Inside of the drawers were these bolier maker plates.
Right now I keep all my handmade doilees, pillow cases, cloth napkins and tablecloths in the drawers. I keep them wrapped in tissue so they stay clean and dust free. Don't you think it would look good sitting along side my sewing machine, cricket machine and all the trimmings. I sure do.
Have a great "VINTAGE THINGIE THURSDAY"
