Step-back cupboard & Petra

I'm still looking for a cupboard; a step-back cupboard to be exact. Stepping back in time...yes, but this is called step-back because the top of the cupboard sits back from the bottom. It is early 1900's.

I go to sleep thinking of them and wake up, listening to Audrey purr and imagining in my mind decorating one.
Obsessed...oh ya!
This is one I am going to see today as it is being sold in a private  home. So far, I have only been looking at antique shops and barns and the lowest they will go is $975.00 for one larger than this one pictured. This  one is much, much cheaper, great condition and cute as a button. Wish me luck....I'm running out of steam.

Audrey likes the little cubby under the shelves. She already has plans for it if I bring this home.

"Mine..all mine."

In the meantime, I'll just play with my little china cabinet.

It is cold in the mornings here but seems to warm up by noon. Another nice day is in progress. 

I must introduce little Petra. 
She is a darling cat that I kitty-sat last week. She has her favorite spots in the house, as all cats do, and I was able to capture a nice pic as she rested on her perch. I just loved her and the feeling was mutual. I'll be seeing her again soon.

I'm off to cupboard shop.
Sounds like a good day to me. 
Enjoy YOUR day.
Hugs, Deb

I really enjoyed a post today at Drop over to meet Susan and Bentley.

  8. Is that style of cupboard the forerunner to buffet and hutch?

    1. Yes, I think so. They mostly come in 1 piece but I am looking for a 2 piece so we can move it easier. The 1 piece can weigh 300 lbs.

  9. A lovely cupboard, I hope you are able to bring it home, it will be a perfect piece to decorate with teacups and white dishes :)
    Lovely kitty Petra, and sweet Audrey, such a beautiful face.

  10. Good luck on getting the cupboard! Hope you were able to get it! I always enjoy seeing your little kitties. Petra is so pretty!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
