Found Goodness

I scored some fantastic pieces at an estate sale this past weekend, and as I started working on one of the little nightstands……out fell all of these perfectly folded papers that were yellowed and browned to perfection. As I looked closer, i discovered that they were poems and verses written in the prettiest handwriting.
I had been struggling with inspiration this week as I contemplated the design plan for my new pieces….{it’s been rainy here for days}…..but, all it took was these sweet words from the estate of a 104 year old lady about Autumn, smiles, and faith to get things movin’ and groovin’.
….and guess what will line the drawer of this sweet piece? 
Yep, you know it!…..and you can read the “smiles” poem any time you please when you open the drawer. I am almost done with this transformation, and will introduce her to you on Monday!
xo,
Barb

    What an amazing find. It's like they were put there, just meant for you.

    Who wrote the poems?
    Lovely idea but I'd keep the originals

    It is like they were meant for me! It was such an exciting thing to find:)…..and Poet Whale, I am not sure if she wrote some of them, and then copied some of them. These are almost like journal pages. I did save out my favorites to keep, but I really wanted to infuse a part of her into this piece. I feel like her words will be heard and live on now…..and I will have some of her inspiring words to keep as well. Win, win.

    How awesome! I love that you're lining the drawers with the letters! I'm glad you have enough to keep at least one or a few and frame them for the studio! Funny how things happen to 'find' us when we need it most 😉
