ABC Wednesday - D


D is for Dresser!
I grew up loving these Dressers. They were beautiful, not just useful. Some of my better-off friends had them in their homes, and I always wanted one.
Some years ago I saw this in a local second-hand furniture shop, and I stood and stared. And stared. And stared. I loved it so much.
My husband and my still-at-home son put their heads together, and bought me an early birthday present. WOW! Now it's MINE!!!

On my Dresser you will see many decorative and important - to me - items, mostly things my family have given me over the years.

Dolphins

Donkeys

And, of course,

Dragons!

So that's my entry for this week's ABC Wednesday. To join the fun, visit Mrsnesbitsplace.
Have a great Wednesday.

Love your dresser and the decorations on it!

I put a dresser too, but it has nothing to do with yours. Old furniture can be really nice, and when you (or I) have an idea about something for a long time it's wonderful to see it come true.

Andrea said...

I love that dresser. Beautiful.

daryl e said...

I know the "stared" and "stared" thing. I went into the store to buy a mattress and saw this amazing bedroom set with it's marvelous cherry wood and awesome dressor and mirror. All I kept saying was "wow". I had to have it. I've been enjoying it for several years now. When people first see it they say "wow" too.

I was hoping to see a dragon because of the name of your blog! The dresser is great with the combination of drawers and shelves. enjoy...

Paulie said...

O wow! That looks like a hutch to me, not a dresser. It definitely is decorative and very delightful.

VP said...

What a deligtful and thoughtful family you have! You didn't disappoint with the dragon pic either!

Peter M said...

Very nice post on D's - it's a gorgeous dresser!

Helena said...

Wa-heyyy! I came looking for d-for-dragons and you didn't dissapoint! LOL!

Annie said...

I should go back and search your blog to see what it is about dragons that engage you. They are rather frightening to me, those plumes of hot sulphurous fumes that come from their mouths, their predilictions for eating damsels in distress, their ability to fly in unexpectedly.

Katney said...

Your lovely dresser has some really nice d things on it. I am not the least surprised that one of them is a dragon.

RUTH said...

I was sure there would be a dragon somewhere in your D post and a beautiful one it is too. A great selection of D's :o)

Gordon said...

That's a very stylish dresser and your decorative items are certainly beautiful.

Autumn said...

I love antiques. We had an antique dresser once, and it could usually be found covered with the dirtiest D-word I know: DUST!

Another great set of pics, my dear. You are so clever!
