where have you been all my life?

My sweet mom called me the other day and told me a neighbor of hers was getting rid of a tea cart. My mom took it for me, sight unseen. I have to say I trust my mom wholeheartedly, but I was a little nervous. Especially since I am not usually into wood tones...there's always paint right?
But when I saw it, I knew just where it would go...and it is perfection just as it is! This corner of my dining room was empty. The proportion and size are perfect! Plus, I love how all the woodtones highlight the whitewashed dining room set.

Have your ever gotten something unexpectedly and then wondered how you ever lived without it? The best part it shows off my Grandmother's china. Isn't that what our homes are all about? Displaying the connections we have with those we love? Now I have another treasure from my sweet mom that I will cherish.

Oh and by the way, that painting hanging above it was painted my Grandpa (the one who was married to my Grandmother who's china it is)
