~The Antique Shuffle~

One of the many perks of having the summer off is that I have time to tweak things in our house.  I have already started doing the antique shuffle and I am really having a good time.

Jeff and I were out shopping a couple of weeks ago and we found this wonderful cupboard.  I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.  We decided to get it and we placed it in the keeping room. 

I decided that I wanted to put my ever growing collection of yellowware in the new cupboard.  Some of my bowls were too wide to fit so I placed them on their sides.  At first, I didn't like it, but now I have decided that I love how it looks.  I also recently found some yellowware mugs.  After a little research, I discovered that they are root beer mugs from the 30's.

 Since I put the new cupboard where the Hoosier used to be, I needed to find a new home for the Hoosier.  I put it in the basement where the black Hoosier used to be.  Now the black Hoosier is in the garage.  It may be looking for a new home soon. = )

I also did some rearranging on the counter tops in the basement kitchen.  I am trying to go with a more primitive and simple look on the counter tops.  This is what I came up with.

Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More.  I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you will continue to come back as often as you can.  Don't forget to look for Yesterday Once More on facebook.  I would love to see you there too.  You can also follow Yesterday Once More on pinterest by clicking here.

I like that potato masher display! Your new cupboard is awesome. I have never seen yellowware mugs before, now I will be on the lookout for them. Enjoy your summer with the furry kids. August will be here before you know it.

Dan, I love your new cabinet with the yellowware. I always turn some of my bowls up and then nestle some smaller bowls in them to break up a display. Those mugs are gorgeous! Enjoy your summer with long days of fluffing things around your nest.

I used to work in a gallery. I learned that if you move one thing that it becomes a game of domino's! Once you start shuffling one thing it always leads to another!
I love all of your yellow ware. I have bowls which I have collected for many many years, buying them back when you could buy one for five dollars!
Looks like you are enjoying your summer!
