When making the move to Grace Cottage, I packed away some of my very special old linens, vintage dresses, nighties, wedding gown and vintage drapes into an old travel trunk I had acquired while on vacation in Wisconsin/Minnesota about 17 years ago. My goal? To keep the family pieces separated from the acquired pieces for posterity's sake (i.e., my daughters). The trunk was put away and half-forgotten for over a decade.
Yesterday, as Mike was working in the garage, he pulled down the old travel trunk.
I thought I'd share with you the pleasure I had rummaging through it this morning.
