Is it old? Is it fancy? Or is it pretty plain and just serves a purpose?
I really really want one for our new house. I do have some very nice 'carnival glass' antique dishes that I got from my grandma's when she passed away (well some of the pieces she gave to my mom several years earlier and my mom didn't want them so I took them, then when my grandma died I found the rest of the set and my aunts said I could have them). Anyways, I would love a place to display them in our new house and there is a great spot for it in the corner of the dining room, but I can't really afford to buy a china cabinet anytime soon. The thing is though, my mom has TWO of them, one is skinny and tall and mostly all glass, it is very plain but very nice and she has had it since before I was born, my dad actually got it from someone who was gonna throw it out cause the glass was all broken and he fixed it up very nice and put a mirror at the back and put in new glass, it was an anniversary present or something for my mom. The other one she has is VERY large and pretty fancy and has big drawers/cupboards at the bottom and then nice glass cupboards at the top and some shelves too. Both of the china cabinets are currently in storage down here because my parents haven't moved all their stuff to their new house in Denver (been there for 5 years owned the house for almost 2 now...). I asked my mom if I could have the smaller one and she said no, she was willing to give me the big one but it is SO huge I don't think it would fit in our new place and it is part of a set so I'd have to take the table as well which is also HUGE and she is actually using that up in Denver... Am I crazy to just refuse either and go out and buy my own? Or should I keep trying to convince her to give me the smaller one? :P
lol, okay lots of questions in this one "question" and I got carried away with my mother vent so if you read this far thanks! ;-)

This is mine. It keeps the dust off all my houses. If I didn't have it, I wouldn't unpack them. When we get something more permanent, I will probably get a better one.
