I'm Trendy!

A few years ago I found this trunk in my grandmother's
basement. It belonged to my Uncle Robert, who
died before I could meet him. His son, who is my dear
cousin Dennis, told me I could have the trunk. It must be over 50 years old.





It's dented, scratched and not in perfect condition...
but that's what makes it interesting.

I was excited when I opened up this season's
Pottery Barn catalog.

It looks like old (faux) looking trunks are in!

For once, something in my home is "trendy"!

The old trunk is great and special that it belonged to a family member. My house is definitely not trendy. I usually am behind the trends, but that's OK too. Have a great weekend. Jackie
