My great-grandmother's furniture


I saved this old piece of furniture from the darkness of my mother's cellar and gave it a honoured place in my new day-room.I love its shabby look and I only cleaned it with a furniture milk based on beeswax.

Great-grandmother.

My mother.
My her mother is my grandmother.
My grandmothers mother would be my great-grandmother.
My great-grandmothers mother would be my great-great grandmother.

How different the words for things. Here... a commode would be a toilet for elimination. Yours looks to be the casing around a basin for washing.

It is so good to see you back again!

I just found your painting on the side bar, it is even more beautiful up close!

This is a beauty. What a treasure to use in your daily life... a piece from your past. yes I would call it a cabinet.

You're right Roxanne .. I love that painting too!!!
