Viintage Cupboard

I wanted to share my new vintage cupboard. 
Last month Mum and I had a trip down to Bairnsdale to stay with an old family friend. "Auntie Lorraine" as she has always been to me has been a friend of Mum's since I was born. I came home with this gorgeous old cupboard and I love it!
 
Apparently, many years ago I told her that she was never to get rid of it and that I would like it when she was finished with it. The cupboard has now come to live with me. I couldn't remember saying that or in fact, I couldn't even remember what cupboard she was talking about. I'm so glad that Auntie Lorraine remembered I wanted it! 
It's not perfect but who cares!
There are age marks on the wallpaper but that's what makes it so special.

That is so lovely! How great she remembered, and how nice she was able to give it to you. What are you thinking of putting in it?

I can see that being put to good use - maybe full of quilts.?

Beautiful cupboard, really great that they remembered. I think I would be tempted to give it a makeover and then store my quilts.

What a lovely cupboard and it wouldn't take a moment to renew the wallpaper if you wanted to! Christine x

How wonderful Aunty Lorraine remembered you liked it. Great to have things that have a happy association.
