Squatty and Glam

Good morning!  What a gorgeous August day.

Anne and I are popping into the booth
a little later, to bring two new - rather, old - items.

One looks as if it should be
dancing in a Disney cartoon.
It's a small, vintage bombe' chest.

The other piece has a little bit of the bling about it.

If you are curious about their histories,
visit That Old House today.  
Now I'm heading for a 2nd cup of coffee . . . Cass
And a bit of random information:  a bombe chest is a French style of dresser or commode (stop giggling, not that kind of commode!), with a rounded or curved "belly" and short legs. It is pronounced "bom-bay" but is spelled with an "e" at the end, not an "ay."
