China Cabinet Display

My china cabinet has fallen along with season.  I just love the greens, oranges with hints of purple and deep reds that fall offers.  Fall looks so nice in my new painted cabinet. 
 I can't get enough of the it! 
Lets take a look..


The turkey platter was given to me by a former boss when I was 21.  I always think of her during this season.  The ironstone pitcher was a goodwill find.  It holds my grandmothers souvenir silver spoons.




I purchased this soup tureen and the matching salt & pepper shakers from Cracker Barrel at the end of December last year for less than $4.00!

The amber depression glass was my grandmothers.  The green glasses were found at the dollar store!

The ironstone soup tureen was another goodwill find!  Glittered pumpkins came from Kirkland's.




I can't tell you how happy this cabinet makes me.  It makes it all worth while to have items that have meaning and bring happiness to you. 

I hope all your decor brings happiness to you!

Oooh that is SO pretty! The way you combined the colors is gorgeous for fall, not too heavy and dark and just so charming. I adore the Bordallo and ironstone too, and the painted cabinet and pretty fabric bring it all together. Beautiful inspiration!
Cheers, Andrea

What a treasure to display your treasures in. I love the back. Is it paper or paint and did you do it? It really sets the mood and goes so well with the Fall.

I dunno what is more beautiful the china cabinet or what is it inside of it?
