Anything Goes In the China Cabinet


Hello, Dear Ones!
You know how it is, the time comes and you just have to change up the stuff in your china cabinet.
So I thought I'd share it with you today.

 It's just impossible to get a good snap of the china cabinet with the light glare.
I've had this china cabinet for 33 years. We bought it when we lived in Roswell, New Mexico, from our neighbors who owned a furniture store. She wanted new furnishings and I lucked out for $200.  I still love this piece and the pretty burl wood on the doors. But I need to do something to the backs. Put up some fabric or something. I have no problem in painting wood furniture but I don't want to paint this. I'll listen to any advice you want to give me! :)
 Anyway, with the doors flown open wide...you can see the innards!
Can you believe as much as I love this piece ~ I've never named it!
 I filled it with my Old Britain Castle dishes and crystal.
 Well, I've mixed it up with a few odd pieces that aren't Old Britain Castles dishes.
 I put the crocheted runner down on the bottom shelf about a year ago and loved it so much, I've never taken it out! Boo boop be doop! :)
Then I poked in various pieces of crystal, old and newer.
Do you change out your china cabinet often?

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Anything Goes

Times have changed,
And we've often rewound the clock,
Since the Puritans got a shock,
When they landed on Plymouth Rock.
If today,
Any shock they should try to stem,
'Stead of landing on Plymouth Rock,
Plymouth Rock would land on them.

In olden days a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking,
But now, God knows,
Anything Goes.

Good authors too who once knew better words,
Now only use four letter words
Writing prose, Anything Goes.

The world has gone mad today
And good's bad today,
And black's white today,
And day's night today,
When most guys today
That women prize today
Are just silly gigolos
And though I'm not a great romancer
I know that I'm bound to answer
When you propose,
Anything goes


The world has gone mad today
And good's bad today,
And black's white today,
And day's night today,
When most guys today
That women prize today
Are just silly gigolos
And though I'm not a great romancer
I know that I'm bound to answer
When you propose,
Anything goes

If saying your prayers you like,
If green pears you like
If old chairs you like,
If back stairs you like,
If love affairs you like
With young bears you like,
Why nobody will oppose!

And though I'm not a great romancer
And though I'm not a great romancer
I know that I'm bound to answer
When you propose,
Anything goes...
Anything goes
