VTT

Wow it has been a few weeks since I have been able to post on Vintage Thingie Thursday. With our move in the very near future, there has been so much going on. Painting and packing mostly. But today I wanted to show you several pieces of furniture that we were able to acquire with the new house.

This is a Thomasville reproduction china hutch that has a date of 1982 on the back. It is a very beautiful piece of furniture, that has been very well cared for. We are going to move it into the dining room after the painting is done.

This is a Drexel secretary which reminds me of one that my Dad had when I was a child. The doors are covered with glass and a screen.

And this piece is a ladies desk. Very dainty.

We acquired all of these pieces from the sellers of the house. In addition to this fabulous bedroom suite.

From what we understand, this bedroom suite belonged to the sellers grandmother. She said she remembers playing on the beds when she was a child 60 years ago.

Please be sure to stop by and visit Coloradolady's Vintage Thingie Thursday. There are more wonderful treasures to see.

And now, back to packing :-)

Wow! They are all lovely pieces. I especially love the bedroom set. I can't imagine why anyone would let that go with the house, but good for you!
