Crystal cut glass
I’ve been noticing that cut crystal Glass wear….Yes the very same Waterford knockoffs on display in my grandmother’s dining room armoire that have been so uncool for so long are making a comeback.

Danish mid century credenzas
Can We say Obsessed? Yes I think so! My love affair with vintage furniture has risen to a new level when it comes to danish mid century modern sideboards or credenzas.
