The Cat's Green Eyes and Tea

When the tea is brought at five o'clock
And all the neat curtains are drawn with care,
The little black cat with bright green eyes
Is suddenly purring there.

Aren't these cabinet doors a delight? My friend, Tari, is the lucky owner of this quaint, old cabinet. It obviously needs some work done to it unless you are into a very "shabby chic"look. Tari will be restoring this cabinet so that it fits perfectly into the new home she's building. The little tea kettles seem to sing a cheerful song! All you have to do it to look at them to know.

Enjoy your day!


  1. I do like those cabinet doors for sure!

  2. Oh but she'll preserve the door panels with the tea kettles, right? Promise me! And I'd love to see it when Tari has finished the task. It'll be beautiful I am sure.

  3. Very unique, La Tea Dah. Cute. Susan

  4. I love that cabinet. At first I thought it was something done on a old door or window frame. Very unique indeed. Have a wonderful day. Tammy

  5. What a lucky find. I love these cabinet doors just the way they are.
