Something Old


This is the oldest thing I own. It’s a wardrobe/cabinet made in the late 1700’s. It has been in my family for a very long time, probably since the late 1700’s. It’s lacking hardware, the doors stay closed with a ribbon instead of a latch.

(Port removal surgery is done, it’s in a box with other chemo related things to be burned in our backyard fireplace on Wednesday evening, when I will finally feel done with chemo.)

  1. Patti, that is a beautiful piece of furniture and history! But more importantly, I am thrilled for you that your port is now removed! Hooray!

    be careful not to get a snootful of the smoke from burning those chemically things (but I’m sure you already know that!)

    Patti!! I have an old wardrobe that is very similar to yours! I will have to take a picture so you can see it. Mine does not have the scrolled edges at the bottom like yours. I always figured someone in our family made it.

    PS SO glad about the port and the burning ceremony!!

  6. Yes! (and nice piece of furniture, too.)

  7. I would love to paint that wardrobe a pretty color on the inside.
    On the outside too.

  8. Just stopped by to see how you’re doing.

  9. It’s been a month since you posted… stopping by to say you are missed! Hope you are feeling better and simply busy living life.
