This is one of the things I like - it has several secret drawers and it holds part of my collection of silver boxes.

That is a gorgeous piece of furniture but I really like all the little lovelies on it. It looks like an altar.

I miss having little things. Little kids and little things just don't mix. I had a lot of little photos - old photos that Mr. B's great grandmother took around their homestead in Wyoming back in 1910 or so. Wonderful things that had to be put away until grubby little fingers better understand their value.

(Damnit soz! Now I'm scooting all of my furniture around.)

Weekend started- so time for renovating.

No altar- it is a secretary. The style is called "Biedermeier". Yes, it is an original, manufactored for our great-great -great uncle 1837 in Vienna.

C'mon Swimpy..... we're all waiting.....

I didn't mean altar in the traditional sense, ul, I meant it in more of a place to keep treasures.

It is truly beautiful and the fact that it was made by someone in your family..... wow!

Isn't it though?

Just gorgeous.

And amazing that there is so much family history -- built for an ancestor! -- rather than just a random flea market find.

I think I am going to put some photos of my house on this thread. Not today, but sometime in the near future.
