the hunt is over

I am the proud of owner of 2 old trunks. I have been searching since we moved here almost 3 years ago. Last week these beauties were delivered:) I was only going to buy one but......I couldn't resist.

You can still see a bit of the old paintings.
I couldn't believe it still had the key.
A small surprise in the inside!
Love at first sight!
Wish it looked like this...
because my printer and scanner don't
deserve something this nice.
It is a funny thing to appreciate something that so many think of as "old and used". In a time when everyone wants new and modern, I find beauty in the things that have a story and a bit of history. Just think, if these trunks could talk. Think about the rooms they have lived in, the discussions they sat in on and the people that lived their lives around them. A bit sad to think they have spent the last few years in a barn. Hope they like their new home:)
