Welcome to my home. Yesterday I mentioned we had several antique pieces and today I thought I'd share them with you.
This was my mom and dad's dining room buffet~some might call it a side-board. It was made in the 1920's and although needs to be restored it is still such a wonderful piece of furniture. We have the table and six chairs that match it. On the top you will notice a clock which was a wedding present for my parents. When we moved here it stopped working and we've got to get this in to the clock shop here to be fixed. It chimes and once you get used to the sound you really miss it when it stops.
Several days ago dear hubby saw a dining room hutch or buffet that had lamps on each side and he loved the look, so promptly told me we needed to get some. Today we ran all over looking at stores for them but couldn't find anything just right. Our last stop was Target and we found these and I think they fit perfectly. They didn't break the bank, so to speak, but add just a bit of formality. Above the buffet I have one of three Thomas Kinkaid prints and I love to change out the other items I display depending on the season. I also need to find new fabric to recover the chairs; I last did this about 20 years ago and fortunately hubby had a slight run in with the fabric on one chair so now I don't need to wait any longer.
This was my mother's Singer treadle sewing machine. I still have the machine although it doesn't work and needs to be restored so it isn't inside the cabinet. About 10 years ago hubby had the cabinet restored for my birthday and I love it. I always display some of my country things on it and in our house it sits in the entry way.
Hubby collects antique cameras and golf clubs but we don't have those displayed right now; we packed up much of our things when we anticipated moving. I also have several antique quilts as well as a few pieces of crystal and creamers. The beauty of antiques is enhanced when they were owned by family members. Hubby and I love antiquing and look forward to more trips in the future.
