Lovely vintage small metal cupboards

These small vintage metal cabinets, presumably made to store bathroom items or medicines are just so lovely to arrange small vignettes in hard to decorate corners. The one above is in a corner of my studio, surrounded by old books and vintage cigar boxes, this one is white and nicely chipped.
This one is in the kitchen in front of a corner window on the bench and surrounded by old glass bottles. The colour hasn't photographed so well but it is a lovely pale turquoise.I want to share with you this lovely david austin rose peeping out amongst the branches of the climbing roses in my garden. I think it is the only rose out at the moment in my garden. The heat of summer is hard on the garden and we are only allowed to use the reticulated water twice a week, not nearly enough water so I hand water with the hose in between to keep them alive. This rose opens right out and has lovely soft yellow stamens.

What adorable little cabinets Jacky, I love the way you've displayed the one in your kitchen with the bottles.

I got my first electronic cigarette kit on VaporFi, and I enjoy it a lot.
