A beautiful day ~

Thank you all so very much for your wonderful anniversary wishes!!!! We had a great day together....Saturday we went antiquing and enjoyed the beautiful weather. The best stop of the day was The Plum Tree of course! I have to show you what we ended up getting for each other ~ this gorgeous old cabinet ~ Cindy had it displayed so beautiful I can only hope that I can make it look half this good!!



Here it is sitting on our dining room table ~ We have to decide where we want to put it....





Plus, Dennis bought me this wonderful old sewing case. It looks to be handmade to me too. It was originally 30.00 and it was marked half off!!! So fifteen dollars wasn't too bad at all ~ I plan on replacing the gold fabric with a pretty barkcloth ~





Another cool thing, Cindy gave me these two baker's racks for my studio because a dealer didn't want them!!!! More storage for the stuff!! Now it's time to start loading up all of these shelves!!






Emily's still waiting poor thing....but I'll let everyone know as soon as we see some action. Noah was able to move into my old art room and is as happy as ever!!! I took a few more photos of The Plum Tree and will add them a little later on today.


I hope you have a wonderful Sunday sweet friends ~

xxoo, Dawn

Sounds like the perfect way to celebrate 28 years together! Happy anniversary to you. The cabinet is beautiful and I know that, when you are finished, the sewing case will be extraordinary.
Have a happy Sunday.

You really had quite a day! Congratulations on your anniversary! Having more shelving should really help with being able to see what you have - I am really excited for you to have such a great space.
