I knew that a new little friend would be arriving soon, so I had a little help from my hubby to make a this adorable little pantry for our new addition. I knew the kind of cabinet that I wanted. It had to be red, and it had to be a two door cabinet. You see it it is built after one that hubby had made me back in NH many years ago. The old cabinet was very large and held all of my special decorating items for the big New Englander that we used to have. It contained all of my seasonal flags, Christmas decorations, fragile ornaments, all of the items that I had made in ceramics through the years and my special dishes that I received from my mother and father. This cabinet was too large to move across country, so it didn’t come with us. It did however go to some good friends home that I am sure will cherish it as I did. This little cabinet captures the homey feeling so well that I am sure that our new addition will simply love it.
So who is this new addition you may ask…………….
Here he is along side of his new cabinet! Isn’t he simply adorable??!! He came with all of the little extra accessories to change out with the seasons.
This is what I received as a trade with Carol. Carol is the lucky person that won my Santa in my giveaway last week. She had also mentioned that she liked my scarecrows that I created, so we did a swap. Carol makes the most wonderful little creatures. Such a talented lady, with such creativity and perfection in her work. I had only described what I would like her to make and she immediately got to work and created this little box of treasures for me! When I received the box and opened it, my son said”Mom, that is sooo you!!”. It was like Carol had known me forever. The mouse and all of the seasonal decorations are simply amazing! Thank you Carol for your wonderful little addition to our home. I guess that “I” am the lucky one- to meet such talented new friends from all over the country.
Life is good!
Wishing you a blessed weekend. Stay safe all of my East Coast friends and family. Batten down the hatches as my mother used to say when a North Easter was headed our way.
