I have a dresser very like the one in the first picutre, I have it in my office but looking at that display, I think I might move it to the kitchen!! Those soft pastels are so soothing! must paint some eggs - I have family coming and not a thing done!! The cockere fabric by Vanessa Arbuthnott is gorgeous! I saw her house recently in a magazine, it was lovely, did you see it? Lovely post Glenda,
