When I turned 16, I received this hope chest from my grandma and my mom. I used it to put all the stuff that I collected for when I married. Daniel and I never had room for it anywhere we lived, so it stayed at my parents. Till now! I had my oh so very talented friend, Cami Fairbanks fix it up and it seriously looks terrific! I couldn't be happier with it! It matches so perfectly with our old house...it looks like it has been here all these years.....THANK YOU SO MUCH CAMI! WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!~My plan for it is to sew a cusion to put on it so that it can be a bench for people to sit on...I must say it looks great below the Nauvoo temple picture which I constructed:) I hope that you all are having a very great January!
