Saturday Photo Hunt # 6 - Antique

This Week's Theme: Antique.


This is the cabinet that contained last week's BROKEN cup. It is, as I stated last week an antique that has been passed down for generations. Can you see how most things have migrated either behind the glass or on the top
(out of reach of little hands)!
I noticed as I snapped the photo that it needs dusted.
That is a tedious task. Any volunteers???

It's even written that you should dust "keep up the good work" ! When I took my pictures I also found a lay of dust ! I could have written "pig" ! Your collection is beautiful !

It's really neat to have things like that handed down thru the generation. Uhh, I think I will let you do the dusting, lol.

Have a great weekend,
Biker Betty :)

The cabinet is beautiful in itself, let alone the lovely china collection you have so artfully displayed in it! What a treasure! :)

Dust? (looking right and left over shoulder) Who me? I would probably put the washable stuff in warm soapy water, rinse and drip dry... and don't ask me to clean the glass... I am no good at it, even when using newspaper and windex.

The cabinet looks so lovely but fragile, how have you kept it so nice?

That lovely cabinet fits my furnitures at home. I think I'll have this copied by the cabinet maker.

Happy weekend!

Oh, don't worry about the dust yet. Give the poor little dust bunnies a chance to mature into full-size dust rabbits first! :-)

Great collection!

Wow - I really like the cabinet!!! It is beautiful.

Cathy said...

HAAA!!! I noticed that the antique I posted had lots of dust on it. Perhaps that is a requirement of the picture!

It's a beautiful cabinet with some beautiful antiques and I think the dust merely adds to the memories!

Dusting- what's that? Fortunately that does not photograph well.
I remember well the days of little hands.
