China Cabinet Upheaval

A couple of weeks ago a neighbour was selling her china cabinet. A bargain I had to have! Huge upheaval followed as I tried to find a place for it. The lovely old grandmother clock that belonged to my parents lost it's prime spot near the front door as it stopped working 2 years ago and I hadn't got round to having it fixed.
After dragging it roughly across the floor and standing it on carpet, not tiles, it started to go again and is happily ticking and striking away. All the clock needed was a change of scene. The clock changed places with the small china cabinet I have had for years, which doesn't hold much china at all.

Below is the new cabinet which caused all the fuss but now allows my Royal china to spread out a bit and also fixed the clock-what a bargain.

My very large china cabinet, would love more of this type if I had the space (and money)


My Royal thimbles below. I have collected thimbles for years but the ones next to the clock are not Royal.



Red sky at night - shepherd delight
Red sky in the morning - shepherds warning.
That old saying did not hold true, Saturday's sky was very red and Sunday was a hot, horrible day with hot wind. But it is now the time of year for beautiful sunsets so be prepared to be bored by more. Some boats can be seen on the lake enjoying the sunset and some last minute fishing.










Good idea Emily to hang your tail over the rail to keep it cool. I think Charlotte is trying to tell you a secret, are you listening??

    Looks like Emily and Charlotte were able to enjoy some sun ~ lucky kitties!

  2. Your house is for china what mine is for books!

    Just dropped in to say my blog address has changed which is why you've had no recent posts. I think you may have to unfollow and then follow again to track Being Me, the replacement for Being Miss. Hope you do.

  3. This is a beautiful collection. I enjoyed much watching your china cabinets.
    What a wonderful sunset. Your cats looks like they enjoy much laying on the terrace. It looks warm!
    Are your cats allowed to go out without leash?

  4. That's too funny that the clock works again now, lol ! Probably it was fat up with the place it was standing. Your new cabinet looks beautiful ! I would need a new one for my cat collection but when I look at the prices of vitrines, I faint ! so I keep my old one.

  5. Charlotte and Emily won't wear a leash so when they go outside on the grass I always stay with
    them and not let them out of my sight.

  8. I could use another china cabinet too, but no place to put it. Your kitties are so cute. I wonder what secrets they share.
