For many years Daddy and Momma have talked about getting me a hope chest, but we could never find one that I really liked. When Daddy and Momma had visited Bottle Tree Antiques back in May, they had found a cedar chest that they thought I might like, but upon visiting the following week we found that it had been sold. The "bottle tree lady" said that they would keep their eyes open for us and let us know when the found a chest!
It came from the estate of a brother and sister who were artistic and just so happened to live in Greenwood, twenty minutes down the road! The Bottle Tree Lady showed us some of the other boxes and goodies that they got and they're really neat!
I'm so tickled to have a spot to put all of the things for my future home! The chest has no key to fit in the lock, but Trevor and Tristan managed to figure out how to lock it! Simply pick one end of the chest off the ground, set it down, and then try to open it! To unlock it, pick up the other end, set it down, and open it!! Now if I can just remember which end to pick up!! :o)
I must be off...... Sawyer and I are "holding down the fort" while Momma is out grocery shopping. Things are a little to quiet....... I'd better go check on him!
