I Love It.....

My neighbor Midge passed away this summer and her children gave me this cabinet for my kitchen. PJ and Jeff moved it for me and yesterday I filled it with things we have rescued.

Ray found the glass bottles on his property at Jonesville, the large one is dated 1920.
A container from Joanne with a green top
A big green bowl from my neighbor Rose Fontana
A stack of Jewel Tea dishes that Jeff found under their porch when they lived in Melvindale
A breadbox that my grandmother used and an old sifter I can't seem to throw away.

Of course I really didn't have room for it in my little kitchen but some things we just make room for, and that doesn't just apply to furniture either.

I really miss Midge. I am probably the only person she forgave for interrupting her football games and lotto numbers. She loved to see Charlie too and he loved to go over there with me.

I will take good care of her cabinet. Happy Monday everyone.

The cabinet looks great there, Peggy. I would have made room for it too. Sorry for the loss of your friend.

I am really sorry you lost a friend and neighbor. I am not so good with change like that. This cabinet will bring you happy memories of your time together.
It looks great there in your kitchen and I'm sure it speaks volumes to you.

Oh Peggy, it looks wonderful in there. I love the way it looks next to the wallpaper--great match. All your pretties are wonderful too and special-that makes them perfect for a perfect piece :)

What nice reminder of your friend though. How thoughtful of her family to give it to you.
