Going with the flow......

Seems like everywhere I looked today someone was showing a cabinet or shelves with all their wonderful goodies on them so I thought I would give it a whirl also.

This is the top portion of my itty bitty china cabinet.  Boy do I have it crammed with all kinds of goodies tho....lets take a peek.

I've started decking it out with some Easter things.  The eggs are sitting in little cordial glasses.  The two crystal goblet are from Germany and are beautiful but that's all I really know about them they were my great Aunts.  The plate is super old and I'll feature the plates in a later post.

Here is a little bit of a better shot...can you see some of my little piggies...I have a thing for piggies!

This is the other side of the top shelf.  More crystal goblets and just stuff.  Little shot glasses that were my dads...nothing fancy but I treasure them.

Now these are most prized possesions.  You can see MeMe and Poppy and all my grands.  Do you count 7?  The baby laying down represent our newest addition who will arrive in early August.  We should find out in the next week or so if it's a girl or a boy...secretly wishing for a girl but 10 fingers 10 toes we'll take it.  I love Willow Trees and have quite a collection.

These are faux chocolate bunnies that I painted and set in the crystal glasses with grass...they look so cute.  Below them is one of two clay angels that my oldest daughter made when in school...those are the things I can never get rid of...and boy do I have some ugly beautiful pieces.

Different angle......

This is the right side of the bottom shelf.  Another hand made angel and a painted pluto on glass in the back...see the little cloche on the side...I have a flower sitting in both of them.

And this is the middle of the bottom shelf...sorry for the glare but the middle section does not open and I had to shoot through the glass.  Yes those are crystal pastel Christmas ball in the crystal bowl.  I always keep something of Christmas out year round...I'm silly that way.

Underneath the actual top part of the cabinet there is an open shelf and I have just a few things sitting on it.

Pretty soon this whole cabinet will be replaced by my Thrifted much huge larger china cabinet.

So there you have it...another portion of my collecting to share with everyone.
