Show & Tell Friday...Curio Happy!

Finally getting a chance even though late in the day, to join in on Show & Tell Friday.
for being our hostess each week.
Be sure and stop by her blog and see who else is showing and telling!

I am showing and telling about my new curiolicious curio cabinet.
I had seen it in a local shop before Christmas and had hinted at Ron about it for Christmas for me.
But alas he went with his own idea.
So recently I went back to that shop and it was still there.
I had also just sold one little thing on eBay that would pay for it, so I went for it.
And even better this time I could get 10% Off and no tax because I am a seller now too.

It is lighted inside and it wasn't to big and bulky.
It is more federal style than Frenchy but I figured I didn't care.
Nice that someone had already painted it off white for me too.
Came also with nice plate grooved glass shelves.
It fits nicely in our bedroom which is where I wanted it.
I still have to readjust pictures on the wall and finish recovering a chair that will go beside it.

I got the idea today to hang this little "Queen" picture plaque at the top to sort of French or European it up a bit.

It holds so much.
I have my art nouveau jewelry boxes and some other things in here.

Also my Antique milk glass dresser jars and perfume bottles.

My German and other cherub things.

And more Victorian items I adore.!
It holds alot, I probably could even add one more shelf if I would like.
So I am very Curio Happy right now!

A nice curio. Isn't it great to get what you want!!! And I figure that if it's still there after a while it was meant to be.
