Some little things in my home...







 Hello friends,   

Today let me show you some of my finds.

The picture of a wardrobe is a typical Normand one, but not a rich one. These wardrobes were made with a tree  which was cut when a girl was born, then the wood was let to dry and when the girl was about to get married the wardrobe was made.

Then full of  hand made clothing. The richer the parents were the more decorated it was. This one is a simple one, but they usually are decorated with lots of flowers and birds and many symbols.

Do you have such customs in your country?

Thank you for your visit.

  1. Your home is lovely. It looks so inviting, so calm. In the olden days, parents would get a chest or trunk for their daughters, then fill it with items needed for a young bride. It was called a trousseau or a Hope Chest. But nothing so fine as the wardrobes made from trees cut the year of a daughter's birth! That is an amazing custom.

  3. Hello Catherine,

    The armoire is a lovely piece of furniture, made even more so by its very practical as well as beautiful looks.

    The glimpses of your home are delightful. Serene in its colours and details. Lovely.

  5. The way that the wood was dried and kept until a girl was going to be married and then the armoire built was a lovely tradition. The one you have looks beautiful. I have a big old oak wardrobe with a mirrored door but it is very simple.
