Yesterday's post featured a pom pom hung from the key to a secretary cabinet. The photo was a relatively tight shot that didn't show off that beauty to its fullest.
I just love this secretary. I love the way it adds some stature to my otherwise laid back decor, and it has a story.
That's my husband with his parents as a baby. Notice anything in the background? Yes, that's it! They bought it as newlyweds (already an antique then) and it has traveled from Belgium to New Jersey, back to Belgium, then to Connecticut, then to London, then Belgium, then San Francisco, then Santa Rosa before it landed back in San Francisco about a year and a half ago when it was gifted to my husband and me.
Obviously because it has come from family it has special meaning to me plus I just love how functional a good old secretary is. This bad boy rocks.
