Winter Solstice--Shelfie #12

We have had Oma's cabinet in our home for at least 25 years. It is a beauty on its own, but I keep it "decorated." Here it is ready for Winter.

It won't be long before my daffodils in the yard are blooming. But here they are always on display. This service has original cardboard boxes and was a gift from the DAF factory many moons ago.

We even still have three DAF drinking glasses!

I think I've shown this Antiques Roadshow worthy Clarice Cliff saucer before.

And winter without Schloss Mespelbrunn [ built about 1430] saucer (Royal Bavaria 1977) would not be complete.

Above the cabinet is a thrifted oil painting of a Scheveningen fisherman's wife keeping busy until her husband returns from the sea.

It looks lovely with all of your special pieces displayed so nicely. I am a minimalist when I clean I like to lift one or two items and clean/dust the area. If I didn't hate cleaning so much I would love to display all of my treasures like you do. Now my basement is a different story :0

I also love to display treasures with a memory. Especially the china with the daffodils is wonderful!
