This post is about antiques and children.
I used to take my girls on "antique field trips"
okay, get a few snacks and a day of fun. AWe stopped at every shop, garage sale, and loaded the car.
Consequently our home had a baby grand antique
piano from Chicago, a child's high chair (oak),
tons of antique chairs, bureaus, mirrors, and more.
My youngest was 2 and my oldest was 5 so, to them it didn't matter, they loved the old stuff.
I was reading Veranda and there is an article about
collecting and kids.
She comments that a scratch here or there gives the antique character LOL
Let kids’ bedrooms grow with them.
This is a great article for inspiration and for ideas on how to decorate with beautiful antiques and still be "kid friendly" You can read the full article on "veranda" on line.
