Moon and Stars

My grandmother referred to them as hope chests more often than cedar chests.  She had several and I remember always being told that one of them would be mine one day and another one would be my cousin’s.  She gave me mine many years ago.  This week my aunt gave me another one.  We don’t recall if this cedar chest belonged to my grandmother or her sister.  Soon my daughter will be taking this one to her house.  This is large one with lots and lots of room for some of our beautiful heirloom quilts.  With its moon and stars we have a visual reminder that our family loves us to the moon and back.2014-05-01-cedar-chest
