I am running late today with my "TIMHT". I have been a little under the weather, as they say, for the past few days and I almost forgot. I would like to share a very beautiful pitcher and bowl that my friend Gayle gave me for Christmas several years ago. We owned an antique mall together and this beautiful pitcher and bowl was in one of our dealers booth. I saw it and fell in love, but did not feel I needed it and at that time did not have the money to spare. This was in July and when I opened my Christmas presents that December, there it was. All I could do was cry.

I am a member of "I Antique On Line" a great community of people who buy and sell or collect antiques, collectibles and art. There is a group within this group called "Whadja Find? Ask Us? Identification and Evaluation". I ask for help identifying this piece and received numerous opinions.
One member identified it as a silver cabinet. Suggesting boxes of flat or tableware fit into the slats and linens, napkins and table cloths in the top cabinets. And was kept in the dining room or butlers cabinet.
The majority of the members identified it as a sheet music cabinet with a curio top circa probably 1920-1930's.
It was suggested that I could use this beautiful cabinet to store photo albums and/or scrap books. I thought was a wonderful way to use it. So I am using it to store my daughter, Donna's, scrapbooks and picture albums from when she was a little girl. I lost Donna in 1982 and this was a great place for these items so I could enjoy them without having to dig through drawers.
Please see the pictures of the cabinet below:
Thanks for letting me share is special piece of furniture with you.

My friend Mimi of Mimi's Rose Chenille Boutique is sponsoring a "Support Our Troops" event on her blog today March 21, 2009. I would first like to say "thank you" to Mimi for this wonderful tribute. Mimi's niece, Megan, is in Iraq serving to protect our country with so many other young men and women. I would like to say "Thank You" to Megan and all of our troops that are serving all over the world today and my husband, Tony Dinsmore, who served in the Vietnam war in 1968 and 1969 and to my father. William Lloyd Tennyson, Sr, who served in Germany in WWII.
I will be sending a special box to Megan to share with all of the troops serving with her and would hope each and everyone that is reading this post would join us in this special tribute to "Support Our Troops.
