Musical Chairs..and drapes and cabinets!

Like a life long game of musical chairs I have reused
most of my furnishings each time I move.
My furnishings and accessories have 
served me in different ways over the years and
 I wanted to share the now and then photos with you.
Now:  pink toile drapes in my office
Then: pink toile drapes in my bungalow dining room
Now: Green Hutch in my office
Then: Green Hutch in NH dining room
Then: I bought it for my bungalow dining room.
Now: White chandelier, painted, in my dining room
Then: It was a black chandelier hanging in my NH kitchen
Now: The carved element above my mantel
Then: carved element used as a headboard in NH 
Now: slipcovered chair in white cotton and lamp
Then: chair is in green and pink slipcover. My office rug is here too and the lamp. NH family room.
Now: Crystal chandy in my office
Then: Crystal chandy in my Victorian's dining room, its original hanging spot.
Then: Same chandy. Also my office rug, current dining room table, 
office hutch all in my bungalow dining room. You can see the white slipcovered chair in its original upholstery in the far room.
Now: My Boos Butcher Block Island
Then: in my bungalow kitchen (I'm in the hat, gift from then boyfriend, now hubs, not shown)
Now: My toile wing chair: I gave it to Bridget from Rehab Boutique
Then: in my NH library with my current office leather topped table
Then: I had the toile chair in here too. 
This is my old workroom office in my duplex!
 I loved finding this picture.
 Look whats in here: my secretary desk.
 I forgot it once lived in this room.
Then: The secretary was in my dining room just last year.
Now: Here it is back in my current office. Oh my goodness.
Then: Look at the picture hanging above my mantle in my federal colonial! 
My sisters and I are raising our glasses to our Nana Cooke that Thanksgiving.
Cheers!
Note my transferware collection has started. 
Sad to say that large blue platter fell off the wall when
 it was hanging in my duplex kitchen. I still have the pieces.
Does everyone move their stuff around like I do?

To see all the houses that I have been talking about you can visit them here.

Have you ever been working on a post that was meant to be saved and instead you published it?
I had just written a post about my pistachio and pink workroom but now no one will see it
as it was up only a half hour before I published this post!
