One of my favorite treasures was given to me by Artsy Dad. It sits in my bedroom. If only “it” could talk. If only “it” would gossip, then I might hear the conversations of my wonderful ancestors.
My 1800's Primitive blanket chest. So wonderful and simplistic.
I am not sure what wood it is made from, but it is very sturdy. It measures 30½ x 20x 13½ inches. It was most likely made in the late 1800’s by my great grandfather. It was given to Paternal Grandmother by her mother, and then passed to Artsy Dad then to Journaling Woman.
I keep (shhh) gifts in it. It is a wonderful and charming piece of furniture in my bedroom. And it’s really nice, if you think about it, to use a piece of furniture that your family before you made and used.
