Our old trunk in its new setting at Kilmartin Castle. [Click on photo to connect to the castle website]
This old trunk has found a lovely new home at kilmartin castle. This trunk has been in my family for many a year. It has travelled to Africa and other continents back in the day when you travelled by 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.
kilmartincastle 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
