I was brought up with the thought that every girl needs a
'hope chest'. So when our daughter was little, I found a
white chippy delight at a flea market...
The plan? Use it as a toy chest till she was ready to fill it with treasures to take with her to her future home. Today - it is in my living room - still being used as a toy chest for when children come over. My daughter is a young adult and not interested in a
'hope chest' at this point. Hoping she may yet change her mind
and fall in love with this precious piece of furniture.
