Shiny knobs

It was looking very dusty.

Oh dear.

Could do better.

Take everything off then.

What a lot of junk interesting objects.

Old plates, fir-cones, ducks,

tea sets, grinders, unsealed pots (sorry Sft), candlesticks, platters,

er - boxes of instruments, lemon squeezers, pictures, mugs, luck heather,

seeds, unsealed pot (sorry Sft), paint (!?), wooden cones (something to do with pipes), vases,

old bottles, shoe last, marble eggs, doilies, mortar and pestle,

Uncle Joe's Mintballs and books (You'll have to turn yourself or the computer upside down to look at the titles.) Yep, they all fit on the dresser. I go for the cluttered look. Out with the beeswax and give the wood a good old polish.

The base of the dresser is old but the top was made from new and recycled wood which was then distressed.

Ooh, shiny knobs!

Here's a 'new' part 

and here's an old part.

I even found a bit of Christmas.

Now I've got to put everything back!

PS The fifty pound notes were fake - just paper serviettes.


  1. I love your mincer! My mum had a Spong mincer and used to use it on Mondays to mince up the remains of the Sunday joint. I hoped to find it in her kitchen but it was gone.
    What a lovely dresser.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  2. Did everything finds it's way back to it's proper place?

  6. I need to clean mine off and out. I just have too many sentimental pieces in can't bear to part with any of them.

    I guess I should rotate things for a change.

  7. Beautiful objects-FILL UP THOSE SEALED POTS NOW!
