newest treasure.....

recently i found this old post office cubbie ............our neighbor passed away last year and his wife has been selling off some of their collection.......................so i left a bid on this treasure......we think it might be an old post office cubbie, but not sure....................i did think it would be perfect for my wool stash....although a few tiny baskets suddenly found a new home..........it sits at the bottom of the stairs, and everytime i look at it, i think of the man with a warm smile and a white pick-up that always, gave a toot on his horn when passing by...................................................................i am blessed!

linking up with http://www.1890.gablehousemusings.blogspot.com/ today with newly aquired piece...........
