Dear My Billet Doux...
About 10 years ago I was on holiday in Woodbridge in Suffolk and I visited an antique shop. I found a desk from the 1930's that had only been owned by one person, the dealer told me. I bought it and when I took it home found, in a secret compartment, the original letter that had been given to this lady (Muriel) in 1936.
Being the second owner of this piece that had clearly been cherished by the previous owner made me realise how wonderful it is to preserve items from the past- especially when they are well made and have a story to tell.
Do you have any cherished items from the past that have been given to you or have been passed by decent. Or have you ever found a little treasure like mine?
