Impossible To Resist

I just couldn't help myself. I have another beautiful tiger oak antique in my dining room. It's a triple curved glass china/curio cabinet from the early 1900's, manufactured by Superior Furniture in Rockford, Illinois. 

It's not completely my fault. My husband suggested we go back to the antique mall to take another look at a little wash stand we saw last week. He spotted this cabinet tucked in a corner, called me over, and encouraged me to buy it. Another anniversary present, he says. The booth owner was there, said he'd give us a sweet deal since he'd had it for a while.  So you see it was impossible to resist and apparently meant to be. 

I haven't forgotten my clutter rule. My current china cabinet is going to move into the kitchen. The kitchen bookshelf is going downstairs to his guy room.  His old shelves will go to the barn.  I gathered up more things out of the spare room closet to donate. Something in, something out.  

As for the wash stand, it's still at the shop. I'm not going back there for at least a few weeks. But it is pretty, and would fit nicely in my mama's room...
