This old trunk has found a lovely new home at Kilmartin Castle. It had been in my family for many a year; travelled to Africa and other continents back in the day when you journeyed by ocean liner.
I used to have the ship's menu, which is heavenly, but right at the moment I can’t lay my hands on it. Hopefully it will turn up in all the clearing out we are doing.
When thinking of a new home for this old friend, I thought of my friends Stef and Simon up at the little castle.They love things with a story too, and I have to say it looks better than it ever has in this fabulous setting.
I have used it as a coffee table and a prop for styling shoots and to fill with flowers for some floral theatre.
Oh the hand painted stripes and initials had us at hello! It’s not only beautiful and with a great story but SUPER USEFUL. It’s already full of our summer clothes to make way for winter jumpers in the closet. Thanks Gill
