These little lovelies are my latest Goodwill finds and current WIPs (progress pics to follow). Whilst out back stripping, sanding and, replacing hardware, I got to thinking. Oh no not thinking, again!
I wondered, who owned these two pieces of furniture? What are/were they like? Why'd they donate them, did they belong to a great aunt who transitioned? Was the funky little chair with the General Store decor-which was handmade by the way, a grandmother's favorite chair, did she clip coupons and sip her morning coffee there?
Through the years and the moves, we've parted with more than a few pieces of furniture. At a time when sustainability and frugality were oft-unspoken and seldom heard. Where is my paternal grandmother's chiffarobe, our first sofa in all its orange, brown and mustard splendor? And how about my nursing chair; is a sweet, new wee one nursing there?
Have you any Tales of Trash and Treasure?
Peace and renewal
