This week I have something very special to share, as we’ve be given a hand me down, part of our inheritance of sorts and it’s a beautiful family heirloom. My in-laws have updated their bedroom furniture and have decided it’s time to pass down this silky oak dresser.
The dresser once belong to my mother in laws great aunt who used to own a guest house in the gold rush highlands of Victoria. The dresser would now be over a hundred years old by all accounts and still has it’s original glass top.
Ben is so chuffed to have this piece now, and just quietly between all of you and me, I went to check on what he was up to yesterday afternoon and found him fluffing about putting things in drawers and folding and all sorts.
Such significant family heirlooms are always so special to receive and come with their a special energy and history of their own.
