Did you “grow up” with a piece of furniture?
Cyndi from Jackcyn Redesign submitted a special piece, her own “fabulous find”!
This miniature roll top desk was made in South Paris, Maine by the Paris Mfg. Company.
It was purchased by Cyndi’s family in the late 20’s in Omaha, Nebraska! Cyndi’s mother was born there and it’s where Cyndi was raised. So, of course, it was a play center for young Cyndi…the beginnings of her teaching career.. and saw many happy hours. After moving to California it was turned into a telephone “answering/messaging” center (wow, remember those???)
And now, as you can see, Cyndi’s grandchildren once again use it as a play center! It has that special, unique quality that children love: lots of cubbies and small places to hide your treasures and the ability to transform the ordinary into magical. We all need a bit of that, right?
Thanks Cyndi for sharing your find with us!
Yes, I know, there was no Fabulous Find last week…I will try to stay on schedule here and post these each Wednesday. But, of course, life gets in the way from time to time!
