farmhouse cabinet redo.. redone ...

Well sometimes, most of the time really, when I'm not 100% happy with something I will keep changing it and changing it around 'till I am. As is the case with this cabinet. I first blogged about it here and was quite happy with it but got sick of looking at my tablecloths through the wire doors as they weren't always this nice and tidy.

So here it is as it sits today and have had it like this for a while 'cause now I'm happy with it. (for now)

I have this lovely cotton lace panel that I tried to attach to the inside of the doors but you think I could get a nail or screw into that wood?? NO WAY.. it's as hard as a rock, hubby couldn't even do it, it took him an hour to get of those teeny tiny screw hooks in and with 7 more to go I told him to forget it!

So for now the lace panel just sits gathered on top of the closed doors...

I added some porcelain floral handles I already had and to the top, vintage salt and pepper shakers and a butter dish along with a metal wire dome I bought a while ago.

Filled the inside with some of my favourite vintage dishes and bowls...

I thought after a few posts of boring you with my garden I'd show you what I've been up to inside!
as always take care,

time to smell the roses..

I don't know why but for the last few months I have been TOTALLY obsessed with roses... first buying them, then planting them and now finally watching them bloom. I felt like a mom waiting for her babies to be born. It has also been quite hot lately and I've been putting in a lot of energy just to keep them alive... but thankfully the weather has turned and it's been raining for the last 2 days.

Anyway here are some pics if you are into roses like me..

I just adore my climbing Jasmina...



and these are just a few ....
bye for now and take care,.. Maryann
