This tall, skinny cabinet which used to hold books a long time ago in its previous life, came from that fabulous emporium in Corbridge, Northumberland.....RE
Having measured it and assuring everyone it would fit in the hall, I am proud to say it slid into place with a 3 inch gap between the top and the ceiling!
It still has the little sliding vents to allow the circulation of air....this would have stopped the books from going mouldy when the doors were shut......
The top cupboard is home to my collection of Nicholas Mosse Pottery......
Bought bit by bit over many years...... other pieces given as presents......
Quite a few cups and jugs are damaged from over zealous dishwasher activity.....especially the earlier pieces.
I think it was a softer clay body and therefore more prone to damage.
Each piece is hand thrown and sponged with quirky flowers and animals......no transfers here.
The bottom cupboard is the "junk" cupboard......sorry, no photo allowed....too messy.
It houses all the little bits and pieces I just might need for future projects..... buttons, lace, ribbons, broken beads, old photos, scraps of precious fabrics..... the list is endless.
Do we all have places like this or is it just me?
Have a nice weekend,
