Sentimental Treasures

Sometimes I walk into a second hand store and I see something that triggers a memory from my childhood.  I'm sure it has happened to many of you, you see something that clicks that switch in your brain, and you hear yourself saying "Oooohhhhh..... I remember this."  Usually it's in the form of a toy, or something you tinkered with as a child, but sometimes it's something your parents may have had.  Well, that's what happened to me, there it was, a cedar chest, one that looked very similar to my own mother's, and lets be honest, really quite U,G,L,Y.  I tried ignoring it, but I ended up getting it in the end, and really a few coats of paint later, I actually find it quite lovely.
