It's an old art deco style dresser with lovely bakelite handles.
The finish is a bit mottled, but I like the lines and the size is perfect. I shuffled things around in my section of our study to accommodate the dresser - now the cheapo, unfinished wood bookshelf is hidden in the closet with all of my knitting and crafting books and card-making supplies stored inside.
I love having my stash easily accessible and organized as I am a visual person and need to see what I have. Hopefully having everything right under my nose will prevent any accidental stash enhancements...hopefully.
I've finished one of my Embroidered Stocking socks (not the embroidery) and will start the other this weekend. I haven't actually been knitting much this week as I've had a few books that I've wanted to finish. I haven't mastered the art of knitting while reading yet!
I did want to show you a sweet little pillow that I've had for quite a while. It was made by my mother with some woven cloth she made back in the early eighties probably. I think it's a lovely way to display some of my broaches.
The top two are from my grandmother, the owl I purchased recently, and the horse broach I've had since I was a horse-crazy little girl. I've actually seen the horse broach for sale as a pendant on the web - a sure sign I am getting older when items from my childhood (and teens!) are considered "retro" and funky.
Have a great Friday everyone! Thanks for all of your kind comments on Orangina and Lara - much appreciated!
