This piece holds a special place in my heart because it was the first antique I ever purchased "all by myself". My mother & I were "running" as my girlfriend Rhea likes to say, & found this sweet tile-backed marble topped washstand in Sherman, TX. I haggled with the owner of the antique shop & got $50 knocked off the price & was so proud of myself! It is in a hallway & hard to back far enough away to get a decent pic.
I love little accent tables because you can always find room for just one more!! This one sits in a corner of our dining room & holds some of my favorite objects. A cherub scales of justice, a fleur de lis ornament, a Roses covered casserole, a cut-glass handled bowl, & a favorite little demitasse cup & saucer.
Beneath it is a little something I'm posting for Vicki at All Bliss Be Thine, because I know she will love this. I found this little concrete lounging cherub for $3.00!! My husband bought this hanging cupboard for me with only a minimal amount of arm-twisting. I just keep adding doodads to it. Among other things, it holds my grandmother's basket salt & pepper shakers, my mother-in-law's little yellow pitcher, a tiny snuff bottle with dipper, our wedding china demitasse cup & saucer, a Spode child's egg plate, a few Limoges trinket boxes, & some vintage lace trim & doilies that my grandmother made.
I hope to post more pics later in the day, so please stop back by.
