Whatever the story - whatever the angle, an antique represents a memory to me first and foremost.
I don't have a lot of treasures saved in form of tangible archives, although I am in love with a lot of "things" which I know at any moment could be gone.
The love of my life gave me this old wooden box to carry around my photography equipment. It also seconds as a box for subjects to sit on, lean on and stand on. I found out this week that it was given to him on his 13th birthday by his best friend. What a legacy I am carrying around with me. I now cherish it even more.
I think that part of being an antique is the story that goes along with it. Thank you all for sharing your legacies. It has been an amazing journey to follow along with you through your favourite keepsakes.
Most times "just right" is oh so perfect - soupatraveler nailed it.
