Cupboard Treasures



Long ago I purchased this wonderful hanging cupboard.

As most of our furniture, it is antique " scrubbed" pine.



It is from Sweden and holds treasures I love.




I have combined new and old.

The little pudding molds and the old vinegar
bottle belonged to my Grandmother.

It reminds me of her, since she raised us for many
years while my Mom was sick.

I remember fondly the puddings she made.

I always watched as she carefully turned them
out onto the plates.

Under the savoy cabbage shaped dish is a
wonderful vintage shortbread cookie mold.

Each baked cookie is a heart.

Shortbread cookies are one of my top favorite cookies!




This little cloche was given to me by my
friend Laura from ...52 Flea.... last Christmas.

It holds a little dolls tea service, very sweet!




Peeking out from the bowls is a little
"Rosenthal" rabbit my Aunt once brought me
from Germany.

My love for rabbits is well-known!!!!



This antique little serving dish is darling.




The hand-painted plates are charming, love the little
bees since my hubbies nickname for me is BEE.
He says, I remind him of a very busy bee.

The antique eggcup holds a vintage green glass Christmas ornament.

The soup terrine looks like cauliflower and is always
a conversation piece when I use it.



On the top shelf are antique little chocolate cups
and two old German souvenir eggcups holding
glass eggs.

Many of the other dishes were purchased at "Homegoods"
and other interesting shops.

The little pewter pitcher holds coin silver spoons
and an antique tea strainer that are family heirlooms.

I hope you enjoyed a peek into my cupboard.

God bless,
Evi

    What a wonderful "journey" through your cupboard. I never realized how such a little cupboard can hold so many gorgeous treasures and can't decide what I love the most - maybe the little cloche, the antique little serving dish or the hand-painted plates :) You really have an eye for decoration!
    Many hugs and kisses from your German family / fans
