The top of my buffet.
Margaret surprised me with the quick revelation that buffet
is not a word used for a furniture piece
across the pond.
So, to clarify:
from what I understand one would call a piece of furniture
on this side of the pond
a dish cabinet that does not have a top or hutch,
as a the top shelves, when glassed in, is called.
I got pretty much all of my furniture
including the buffet
from IKEA a few years ago.
I don't think they make all the pieces I have now.
So it is.
(The dishes shown are my Grandma's dishes who I mentioned in
my last post who was married to my Grandfather, John).
Thankfully my buffet has deep shelving
as I have a lot of dishes
and not a lot of kitchen cabinets.
Not to mention that this apartment's small
(it is half a wall with enough counter space for a dish rack)
has no drawers.
Not a one!!
So my 5 buffet drawers hold not only my
like tea strainers, tea cozy, cloth napkins
and an extra tea pot,
but also my measuring cups, spoons and the like.
