  • entropygrlI still treasure the pieces my Dad made for my girls. Cost racks and bookcases. And when they moved to NYC, a small desk just perfect for ridiculously small apartments. He is still with us, but his carpentry days are behind him now.
  • ewmcguireIt's beautiful! What a treasure.
  • tuatara_cdaThat's one thing grandparents are for!
  • jspilker42"Grandpa was a carpenter/ he built houses, stores and banks..."
  • carolinagirl0828Beautiful piece for a beautiful girl. (Plus it doubles as a place to sleep when she joins the Ladyhood of Vampires.)
  • yknotbMy hope chest is from China. It has Cloisonne panels & a massive lock. I bought it from a sea captain
  • ooohclayAwesome! I love wooden chests, and I love that she still gets in there like my 7 & 4 yo kids (I really hope they'll keep doing these kind of things forever!)
  • bluestarchannelingI would climb in there, too!
  • vjh1007is there a whole world in there like in Fantastic Beasts?
  • froggi1005I love that she hopped in, that's exactly what I'd do. It must smell amazing!
  • read.write.reviewLove it! I still have my mom's. 😊
  • jenboo22Before I saw your caption I was wondering why she was in a coffin. Thought maybe she had also joined the Ladyhood of Vampires

  • dave.blanchard.96I know that your Daughter is amazingly clever and exceptionally creative; but that is the worst "Thing" Addams cosplay I have ever seen. (Bet her Wednesady is spot on).

  • eatlikeatreatVery nice 😀
  • annalisabellMy boyfriend went to the barber a couple days ago and asked what In thought the pomade they used smelled like and I said cedar. He said he didn't know what that smelled liked. "What kind of childhood did you have?!"
  • juleababsI have a cedar chest that's around 200 years old. It's gorgeous, and looking through it is like taking a trip back through history: my baby clothes, and my children's, Halloween costumes that were my mom's when she was little, quilts that my great-great grandmother made, and my favorite: my great-great-great aunt and uncle's wedding clothes, her dress and underthings and his military uniform. It's all so gorgeous and full of history! ❤
