Hope your weekend is going well. Our home is smelling wonderfully festive at the moment, due to the fact we have been making a Christmas cake. This is a new thing for us but inspired by Frugal Queen we have followed Delia's Recipe and I'm hopeful the resulting cake will be yummy. The aromas of citrus , cinnamon , nutmeg and brandy floating around here at the moment are divine.....I wish you could smell them.........
Anyway, I digress. This post is about a long held dream of mine to own a Welsh Dresser. I simply love them as I think they look so pretty . Do take a look at Kazzy's fabulous dresser in her blog header HERE, see what I mean ?
Additionally they are both a practical storage item and a wonderful display opportunity . I even have a spot I would like to put one in my dining room..........
Ummmm , I don't usually share this uninspiring corner with you lovelies because it is a cluttered mess. This picture was taken after I had moved my yarn stash and project bags. I've donated a lot of outgrown toys and clothes to charity so my yarn can squeeze in a cupbord upstairs. But I'm still left with this ageing Ikea shelf unit which does not hide any of the remaining necessary stuff.
I'd been keeping an eye out for a secondhand Welsh Dresser in the charity shops but without much luck ( and even from a charity shop , a nice one can cost about £90 around here).
Then last week Mr BM came home and told me his workmate was getting rid of a Pine Welsh Dresser and would I be interested ? "YES I AM" was my instant reply.
Happy day !! a Welsh Dresser had practically fallen in my lap and for only £30
Well I'm really hoping it will. Final delivery arrangements are still pending but somehow it will be mine .
And in the mean time I've been allowing myself to do some serious day dreaming. I've made a Flickr Gallery of my favourite dresser images HERE with added notes to myself about why I love them.
I'm so looking forward to finally getting this clutter out of sight and I can't wait to play around arranging some of the pretty things I already have on it's shelves. Christmas has come early for me .Of course I'll be sharing pictures with you all :0)
I'll leave you with a couple of Autumnal images........
Wonderful , and just painted by my talented Mum.
