Mormor was delighted when the Quimper Hitty human found a dilapidated old cabinet for her…
…she likes it because it has an elderly patina, creaky joints, parts that don’t work any more, hidden stories and missing pieces…a venerable history withal.
I love both types of grandma’s drawers! You find such wonderful pieces of furniture for the Hittys. Grandma’s under- drawers have such a nice grandma shape, too.
Oh I do so love you having caught that word-play!
Thank you Pam, and Ushashi…the little cabinet was at a second-hand store – I was so pleased to spot it! Grandma’s under-drawers are nice and roomy – just how she likes them!
Hi, can I use the picture of the bottom drawer ffor one of my singles please? Many thanks Lucia
I will write to your Yahoo email.
Elderly patina, creaky joints, parts that don’t work any more, hidden stories and missing pieces – that’s me to a T!
I love her kind of cabinet. So glad she is using it.
We love it too! So many useful little drawers and shelves…we may try and find some replacement drawer-pulls to make opening a little easier!
Your choice of words is admirable for this narrative. I look forward to reading more of Mormor and her times in the QH household.
Mormor is very happy to have nice new drawers, and as soon as she gets a little more presentable, she will be making the acquaintance of the rest of the household!
this is a great photo!!! She is such a dear. I am betting the Quimper Human will be doing a bit of work on the elderly cabinet!
Thanks! I am going to try and make/find some replacement drawer pulls anyway…the cabinet door would be a bit more of a challenge, but perhaps!
Perhaps leave the top shelves open? ‘Frame’ its sides with a narrow moulding trim, and fancier decorative top…
afterthought – a simple fancier top to match the bottom, below the drawers …
post-afterthought – I think I would ‘remove’ (pry out?) the bottom and put it at the top!
Then replace the bottom with a plain strip.
She looks great in her bloomers!
Thanks! I think so too, it was nice to have a few moments to indulge my favourite mormor! I am knitting up a baggy sweater out of that alpaca you gave me – roomy bloomers are all very well, but fall is coming….
I love Mormor. And her drawers!
Thank you, and thank you so much for helping me to find her in the wood! She is very pleased to be out in the daylight, and very happy to have her nice new drawers!
