I didn't get much stitching done since yesterday so I thought I'd share another one of my cat tales with you!
I've posted photos of my Hoosier cabinet before but I never shared the story of how my cats have always loved to get inside of it:
Everything is original except for one hinge. One was missing so we had to buy a reproduction. It has the bread drawer, the flour bin/sifter, the original porcelain top and the working tambour door. The only thing missing is the original bread board.
If you've never seen one of these wonderful old kitchen cabinets, you wouldn't believe how much storage space there is in one of them! I store my crocheted doilies and decorative towels in the drawers and in the big cabinet underneath, I keep my vintage tablecloths and tablerunners.
Nightmare doesn't bother to pull anything out. He just crawls in, pushes things around a little bit and makes himself right at home:
While I had the camera out, I took a few more photos to share with you, just for fun. You may have noticed the towels on my Hoosier cabinet:
I saw a very similar set with angels at a flea market not long ago but the seller wanted $40.00 for the set. I know my prices for vintage linens and refused to pay that much for them. But the style was identical to these so they were probably by the same manufacturer.
These stitching on these towels is absolute perfection:
Anyway, that's my dining room:
Well, I hope you enjoyed my cat tale and my dining room tour!
