Heirlooms are lovingly tucked throughout our home.
If you take the time to listen, each one has a story to tell.
Heirlooms are a part of who we are...
Where we came from...
Where we are...
What we believe in.
This post was sparked by YOU!
I received such sweet comments and e-mails about this piece of furniture that I used as a backdrop for my recent post titled Easter Decor, Flowers and Music.
You can see the post HERE.
It sincerely warmed my heart that you were interested in it.
This is one of the reasons that I started blogging last year...
to meet others that share the same passions and interests that I do.
So to YOU I say thank you!
This bench once belonged to my husband's Great Aunt Pearl.
It now graces our foyer.
This piece is used by family and friends when they visit...
It provides a place to sit and take off or put on shoes.
Sometimes it holds purses, bags and coats for visitors.
This heirloom is also used by us...
It usually holds a small towel to wipe off wet/muddy dog paws.
The seat lifts up, offering storage space.
It currently stores (and hides) board games and card games.
So yes, we lovingly use this heirloom, but we also showcase it's beauty.
Situated in the foyer, it is one of the first and last things you see when visiting our home.
It is a sturdy piece of furniture, that gracefully shows it's dents and dings.
Yet has elegant details on the top.
The arms are slightly curved, providing comfort.
The sides are simple, yet beautiful.
It has bun feet.
My hope is that our children are learning to appreciate and respect heirlooms also.
Hopefully when they are grown and have homes of their own, they will have some heirlooms tucked in their hearts and throughout their homes.
