Long Awaited Shelf

Well this is the story...Have you ever seen something you really loved but couldn't have it.....well I got it....I saw this old shelf the shop owner used for display...I asked her if she would sell it and she said yes...well the price was a little more I wanted to spend....I would always find a little treasure or 2 over the years I went to her shop and every time I admire this shelf....well at long last the price came down to something I could afford.....I think she knew how much I wanted it.....I was so happy I hugged her.....
It was an old maple shelf she painted white....lucky me I didn't have to paint it.....

I had the perfect spot in my family room.....

I had so much fun today playing with my treasures....

I love lace and of course teacups and teapots.....

more lace......

Thanks for your visit...
Hugs,
Mo :-)

All your pretty things really stand out on the shelf against the blue walls. Very nice.

I love what you did with your shelf. Looks so pretty! My aunt had one just like that in Maple of course. She kept her teacups and saucers on it like you are doing. My brother and sister-in-law ended up with it. Then during the earthquake we had in September 2000 they lost all the teacups and saucers. The quake bounced them all off the shelf. I don't know if they still have the shelf or not. I guess I should find out. I could use it if they are not using it.
