A Little White Cabinet

I fell in love with this little old cabinet and bought it three years ago. Once an old built in, it has great white chippy paint and the old wavy glass. It sits in our bathroom - that of which you will not get to see until we get it redone. It is in the early stages of an overhaul. Someday there will be pretty white beadboard, an antique piece of furniture with two sinks dropped in and a pretty tile floor.
Inside are some vintage linens and some favorite white and sea blue towels - of course, only for decoration and not for use.
Folded up is a wonderful antique quilt that is made up of old feedsack fabrics. Every time I look at it I see a fabric that I hadn't noticed before. It is in wonderful condition, too and am glad that I brought it home!!

I also cannot end this post without thanking each one of you who took the time to leave me a message on the last post about my precious little Scotty Dog, Doogs. As silly as it may seem, I read each one to him while he layed at my feet. For those of you who wanted me to give him hugs and kisses, just know I did and told him that they were from you. You all just amaze me with the warmth that you pass onto me via blogging. If I could reach through this screen and hug you I would!!!!! So, for the best that I can (((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))) and xxxxxxxxxx to all of you - across the miles, over the hills and across the oceans. I will keep you posted as to the outcome of the biopsy......still praying, and Lauren, like you, I do say prayers with my little guy. xo

I love your little white cabinet. It looks long and small and just the perfect size for MY bathroom. LOL! Seriously, it looks great and I will be awaiting seeing your finished new bathroom. I just adore that vintage quilt. I am always amazed that people find them when out on vintage rummages. I guess that is because I cannot imagine getting rid of the quilts I make other than sometimes giving them as gifts.

How much longer till you hear about the biopsy? I know it is so nerveracking. You and Doogs both just have some fun time together and try not to think about it too much. I keep you both in my thoughts!

Hugs ~

How did I miss your last post? Google reader is skipping a few I have found, or not letting me know new ones are up until a day later... so sorry to hear about Doogs, I hope he is ok. Huge big huggies to him from me and and a big sniff from my Ernie, lol isn't that what they do, sniff other dogs' butts? sorry!!!!!

Becky, now that cabinet is sensational. I just love it, and can see why you fell in love with it, it's just PERFECT! Love your linens in it too. You have such a beautiufl home, beautiful photos to share and a beautiful way to tell us about them!

Natasha Burns said...

Ah see now with you guys putting your clocks back yesterday and us putting them forward last week, we are a further two hours ahead and that means in my afternoons some of my friends are awake still~ yay!!!

The seagull sign will get to my site soon, maybe tonight or tomorrow, just haven't had a chance to resize my big photos of it yet. ox

Your little white cabinet is lovely. That quilt is amazing.

We too have a couple of bathrooms that are due for an overhaul, hopefully early next year.

I hope little Doogs feels better soon and the prognosis is good for him.

Love your little cabinet! What a perfect size! That quilt is just gorgeous - love the colors!

Hope the biopsy turns out that it's nothing serious. I love dogs and spoil mine terribly. :) I know what it's like to worry about them.



Brenda said...

I missed your last post too! Love the frames. So sorry to hear about Doogs, I will keep my fingers and toes crossed that everything turns out alright!

I love the white cabinet! It is perfect in its chippiness!
p.s. In order to mosaic the lower tiers of the tea cart, I place it on a table, so it is a little higher, then bend and contort until I get it done - I always need a hot bath after doing these. :-) It will be done in a few days and I will post a final pic...Thank you for asking!

Mary said...

The cabinet is lovely as are the linens Hope there is good news about your dog

Lallee said...

I'm on pins and needles with you until you get the biopsy results for Doogs. Baggins, Oliver, and I send lots of xo's!

Your cabinet is wonderful. Love, love the linens and colors tucked inside. Your bath plans sound really nice. Can't wait to see someday!

Sweet Remembrance said...

I love your white cabinet!
The linens look perfect...

Auntie Joy said...

I love your white cabinet, I have a big one without doors that I keep towels in, not nearly as nice as yours.. I also have 2 bathrooms that need redone desperately!! One is so ucky we only use it for an emergency. Mostly I use it for a storage unit..
Glad to hear Doogs is better.

Nancy said...

A very lovely cabinet! It's even more beautiful with your vintage linens tucked so carefully away peeking through the wavy glass. I love chippy white paint. I have a chippy white trunk in our bedroom I found at a garage sale, and it's one of my very favorite things!

My thoughts are with you and your little furry one.

ShabbyInTheCity said...

I'll add little Doogs and you to my prayer list! It won't be the first or last time I've prayed for a dog!
Your cabinet is very sweet!

Esther Sunday said...

There isn't ANYTHING in your house that I don't love!! The soft colors of the towels, etc., look fab! My two "people" - Spanky and Millie, send their loves to Doogs too. Love, Esther

Kristen said...

What a perfect little cabinet! The quilt inside it is absolutely cozy looking! I agree with Heidi and it seems as though sometimes these wonderful quilts are forgotten in and amongst the families that they came from. Praying for you and your precious Doogs!

FarmHouse Style said...

The little cabinet is such a charm. I love the vintage lines and quilt:)

I hope you and Doogs receive good news about his biopsy soon.


Dena said...

Hi Becky,

That cabinet is awesome! I just LOVE it!!! From one 80s gal to another, I also love the music you pick ;) Gigi sends big doggie smooches for Doogs.


Simply Shelley said...

I love the little cabinet and all the sweet linens you have housed in it. I love everything about your home. It's always so inviting just looking at your pretty things. I will say a little doggie prayer, for Doggs. Pray all goes well.


Ginger~~Enchanting Cottage said...

I have alway wanted a white linen cabinet like that. It is just beautiful I am sure everytime you look at it you feel special. I want to make one out of my built in hallway but it will have to wait. I was going to post pictures and try to get some ideas from other bloggers.
I am so sorry about doogs, I too will say a prayer. I work at Albertson's and we sell an ice cream for dogs called Tasty Paws, maybe he would enjoy a special treat. If I lived near by I would bring him a box.
Take care of the both of you!

FarmHouse Style said...

Hi, Becky! I buy the transfer paper at Office Max. I think most office supply places have it. I believe it was in the art supply area.

I have bought patterns from Vicki before. She has some really nice ones.

Thanks for stopping by to see me. Have a great Monday:)


Michelle said...

You made my eyes well up~I'm hoping good news for Doogs.

Love your cabinet. When we bought our house, someone took out our built-in that was in the dining room! What were they thinking??

Have a wonderful Monday.

LAUREN at Faith Fuel said...

Prayers, yes- and don't forget the lullabies you'll want to sing over him at night! They soothe our furry babies as much as they soothe us!

Nunnie's Attic said...

Honey I say use your towels. I just read something where a woman bought a new nightgown and saved it for a special occasion. 8 years later she had never worn it yet and her husband decided that her funeral attire couldn't be any more special than that.

Point is - every day there is a special occasion to be found. And, I love the little cabinet!! Looking forward to seeing the rest of the bathroom.


Shabby-Roses-Cottage said...

Oh my dear Becky !!!
I'm soooooooo sorry to hear about Doogs...I hope he feels better and that comes out this isn't nothing seriously !!! X X my cross fingers...

And I love you cabinet...It's a perfect dream !!!
Many love greetings & Hugs,Patricia

Meggie said...

Lovely linens, Becky. Be sure to show us photos of the bathroom update. Still praying for Doogs... my canine, Onyx, sends licks and hugs.

Michelle E. ~ Vintage Pastiche' said...


I am so ashamed I haven't been here in so long. I am sorry that Doogs isn't his best. I will definitely be sending him healing energy and saying lots of prayers for him.

I love your little cabinet too!


~Becca~Bluebird Rose said...

Okay, I want that cabinet. And while you're at it, just throw in those gorgeous towels and that beautiful quilt too! ;)
I don't think it's silly at all that you read the comments to Doogs. We love our pets so much..... keep us posted!

Sondra said...

Love the cabinet and the frames. Also, my Danny Boy doggy wanted Doogs to know that he's thinking of him and hoping for the best. He knows how tough it can be to lead a dog's life!!!!!!!!!!

regina barnett said...

I love your little white cabinet. And i can't wait atill i get to see your new bathroom. I know it will be very pretty. I hope the biopsy will come back with good new for you and doogs.

LOVE your white cabinet!! So sorry to hear about little Doogs! :( I'll be praying for the little cutie. I know how worried you must be. The pug breed has many health problems too, and unfortunately a few of my pugs seem to have most of them :(. Keep good thoughts. ((hugs))


crazyhaberdasher said...

Love your cabinet and love the linens and quilt.
We just did our bathroom adding a much needed second toilet...but only renovated for selling, not for myself!...keeping it very basic and plain.
Still thinking about Doogs - he can only benefit from all of those hugs!

Cottage Contessa said...

Firstly, I hope Doogs is feeling a little brighter each and every day. Paris Fifi sends her love xx

Your little cabinet is lovely, but I just l-o-v-e the gorgeous stash you have in it, especially the quilt. Beautiful!

Sallie said...

I love this cabinet. It fits my style perfectly!

I linked to your blog today :-)
God bless,

Lisa Johnson said...

Wow, you sure have some sweet friends! I also love your little white cabinet. I have one similar, only not as cute, for sale at Monticello. It is painted a light green, maybe if I paint it white it will sell. ha ha Hope you are having a good week and Doogs is feeling better.


Deb said...

I've been away from the computer for a few days so am doing a bit of catch up with past posts! Sweet little Doogs - I'm so glad you have read him all the good wishes, hugs and kisses left on your blog :-}
