My New White Kitchen Cabinet

Hey friends! 

It’s been over a week since we chatted.  Hope you are all doing wonderful.

We are home from a truly wonderful week with our Louisiana family…the Buckets of Burlap family.  What fun and what sweet memories!

This visit included lots of amazing shopping.   Two of the places that Becky took me were the beautiful LaurieAnna’s and the Canton Flea Market.    I really can only say, “oh my”.

I brought home so many new treasures.  Some will stay in my home and lots will go into my ETSY shop.  I will let you know when I get them added.

One of my favorite finds was a great old, solid wood, white cabinet for my kitchen.  What a story that goes with this cabinet but probably too long to share.  Let’s just say that God knows the desires of our hearts.

Take a look at what I stuffed into my van and brought back to Tennessee…

I so love this cabinet.  It really reminds me of an old refrigerator. 

I will have lots more photos to share real soon of some of the other things that came home with me and some more changes I have made around the house using my new goodies.

Heading out to do some planting.  Have a blessed day.

Happy Easter, my friends.

He is Risen!!!!

I was about to ask if it was an old ice box. It's absolutely perfect and great for storage. I love your old cutting boards and have bidded on a locker basket like that and hopping I will win. Love all you do!

Great stuff! You are so lucky to have made it to Canton~I'm hoping to get there one day, but it's too long of a drive for one day~guess that means I'll have to stay more!
Glad you got to have a good trip.
