Smitten with a Drawer

About a month ago while shopping with a dear friend at a favorite flea market, I spied something unique and dear.  It was a little wooden antique drawer.  Just about 15 inches in depth and about 4 inches wide.  It had rounded corners and a sweet old fashioned crystal knob.  I loved it.  But I couldn't justify buying it b/c I didn't know where I'd put it.

That little drawer has not left my memory, and just recently I could visualize it on my coffee table in the great room.  Tonight while running an errand near this flea market I decided to stop and see if it was still there.

It WAS!!  I was such a happy camper!!  And that little $10 treasure came home with me.  Happy, happy sigh.

I think it will be sooooo fun to use in decorating for each season.  I can visualize pretty linens spilling out of it, according to the season, as well as plants, candles, antique gloves and books, etc.

I used Old English furniture polish on her when we got home, then took about 5 minutes to gather some linens and kitchen items to put in her.  

And here she is!  She will grow and blossom and bloom as I have more time to find the perfect little belongings to fill her space.  And I would LOVE to hear your ideas about what you would put in her.

Do you think she is from the 1940s?  Have you seen antique drawers 'out there' in the decorating world?  I rather think she is happy to be in use again.  The star of my show, in fact.  What do you think?

Thank you so much for stopping by!
