Happy Vintage Black Friday! I’m a tad late getting this post up, but better late than never. I was trying to think of something black and remembered this:
This was my grandmother’s trunk. For years it sat in a storage room in her basement and eventually I asked her if I could have it. I’ve had it since I was in my early 20’s and it has gone everywhere with me. For many years, it served as a coffee table in my various apartments. Now it serves as storage and is situated under our old green farmhouse table.
Now, I don’t know if you can make any of this out, but here is what is written on the top:
It says, in Grandma’s distinctive writing, “Carrie Locke, Royal Victoria Hospital, Barrie, Ontario.” This is the trunk Grandma took to Nursing School in the early 1900’s. The writing is fading, which makes me sad…but I know what it says.
Thanks for all the stories about your own favorite things (in the previous post.) I loved hearing them. Some of you mentioned the pillow. I bought two of them in San Diego last summer. I’m crazy about them. They were on a bench on the porch, but now I’ve brought them inside for the winter.
