This one was Free!

What a thrill I had last night when I finally figured out how to post a picture on my blog. I’ve had enough difficulty just trying to put my picture and title on here. Whenever I thought I wanted to post a picture, my mind went blank and my eyes began to see stars; no pressure, right?
When I checked my blog this evening, I was overjoyed to see that some of you had responded to my last two posts with positive input. THANK YOU! You can’t begin to know how that made me feel. Well, on second thought, maybe you can. After all, you’re bloggers, too. Silly me.
You might enjoy knowing that you made my little ol’ heart go ‘Pit-A-Pat’ when I saw that so many of you had responded. I do so much appreciate all of you who have replied to previous messages and these new words of encouragement and advice just have me ‘Flying High.’ Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I thought you might like to see another of my favorite finds. This one is not from a flea market or any other kind of market, actually. We found it in a forest, years after the fact. Trees had grown back and grass was tall and lush and this treasure was hidden behind bushes that had obviously grown for a long, long time around our prize.
Actually, I say that we found this, but really I must give my good husband credit for such a great find. Sometime, I’ll tell you the longer version of how this became such a valued treasure in our family. For now, I hope you enjoy looking at what we have come to love.

  1. First of all, thank you for stopping by my blog, commenting and following along!Apparently, you are someone who I should hang out with, particularly if we have even the slightest chance of uncovering treasure like this!And, you know what? I think we've of the same vintage! 😉

  2. Hi, PJ,Yes, I think we are. It would seem so, anyway, from the stories you tell… and the ones my children have told me. :-)Don't you just love these old pieces? They have so much character and personality. I don't know about you, but I would far rather shop in one of those 'Out of the way places,' like auctions, flea markets, garage sales and former homes of forest fires than I would in new and modern buildings. hahaThanks for stopping by. I look forward to getting to know you better. ~ Yaya

  3. Cheap is good, free is better! I keep hearing these mythical tales of miraculous curbside finds, but I think this is the first I've heard of unearthing one in a forest!Great find, I can see why you love it.All the best,Anne

  4. Thanks, Anne. I have others, but the story behind this one makes it a real family heirloom. It must have been a toolbox or something, at one time because inside is a sliding shelf, divided at one point. You can't lift it out, but it has come in very handy for many things. ~ Yaya
