After the Love Has Gone

After the Love Has Gone
This pie safe has survived about 50 years worth of earth, wind and fire, and I’m not talking about the 
R and B band. It belonged to Stacey’s great-grandmother over 100 years ago, and by the time Stacey got her hands on it, it basically had to be excavated from the ground where it had sat and been subjected to all the elements for decades. Ok, maybe not fire, but pretty much all of the other elements.

After a LOT of tender loving care, Stacey fully restored it and gave it a most deserving home indoors. Those pull out bins were for sugar and flour, so handy!

    What a gorgeous piece of furniture!
    They sure knew how to make functional pieces back then.
    It looks beautiful, all redone.
