Found in a consignment shoppe in Naples, Florida, this Italian Bombay Chest just makes me smile.
Have you ever known that one day you would find that special thing / object at the right price if you just waited???
I ‘ve wanted a Bombay Chest forever and when I found this one it was love at first sight. I bought it………. lol…….. so I won’t eat for the next week or two or three!!!!! At least one of us won’t have the rounded front!!!! lol
This was great fun… like doing a furniture layout!!!

The art of collecting the interesting and intriguing things of this world and bringing excitement of the possibility of “freezing” that moment in time are the reasons that my eyes have broadened to look under and over and in between the winds of the nights and the lights of the days…… Come walk beside me and we can be the “sunshine” for this season in time……….. just walk beside me…………..
