Thought you all might like a bit of a nosey posey round my dresser, having had a bit of a tidy-up in it, as it was looking a bit tired and all sorts of rubbish seemed to have found its way in, sweets, receipts, lotto ticket, not a winner unfortunately. So here we go...
I have always wanted a dresser but never had the right type of house to have one, my first house was built in the 1940's and felt that one would'nt be quite right don't know why but it never felt like a dresser house, second house was a 60's bungalow, so definately would'nt be right in there, but I now have a terraced house built in 1903 so a dresser is just right. Haven't a date for when this dresser was made, its pine and has a glass fronted top, two draws across the top and two down the sides and a little arched cupboard in the middle all rounded off with white china knobs and is all warm and glowing, which I love...
Love this little corner, a little bit of cleaning involved with the cutlery and serviette rings, won't get done too often, so it can look old and worn
The little card with the initial 'L' next to the photo is full of love letters sent by Lily's husband in the photo, so felt they had to be kept together as they were never apart, always happy
More family photos, with Lily again sat in the deckchair, have load of photos of these two in really funny poses! They lived life to the full, right upto their old age. Thats what makes all these photos so heartwarming.
Old buttons and cotton reels
Natural History corner
Kings and Queens... daughters collection
Cora and Percy, Cora on the left has a little vase at her base and holes so that you can put flowers in, and Percy is just Percy as snooty as ever
This photo is my Grandad and my Auntie, I never knew Grandad as he passed when I was only one, but do have a picture of him holding me at my Christening, so feel there is a connection there. He worked for the Co-operative in Manchester, the plate and mug were presented to him at various times and his treasured swimming medals for lifesaving.
This little painted Angel comes to every house we go, I don't think she will be going to any more, right at the bottom it says "Bless this House"
So there we have it, a tour or the dresser hope you've all enjoyed it, I know I have as it brings so many memories.
Bye for now
