365-28

My family recently lost another member the Cancer...

My Aunt (Dad's Sister) passed after a very short battle ~

In her home, my Aunt had a cedar chest that had belonged to
my Paternal Grandmother. The chest is at least 75 years old!!
I am honored to store it at our home for my Dad...

The chest has so much 'character', I wish it could talk and tell us
all the stories of it's life ~

I tried to capture some of the color, dents, dings and the awesome lock!
Unfortunately, pictures don't do it justice, so you'll have to take my word for it!!
It is truly a treasure...
