Old Things

A GoldieLoo Original Design.
I have always loved this poem. It sums up my feelings for all the little trinkets and things from my loved ones that I have saved over the years. The older they get they more they mean to me.

Old things are more beautiful

than many things brand new

because they bring fond memories

of things we used to do.

Old photographs in albums

love letters tied with lace

recapture those old feelings

that new ones can't replace.

Baby shoes, a teddy bear,

a ring that Grandma wore,

are treasures waiting there behind

a door marked "Nevermore".

Old things are more beautiful,

more precious day by day.

Because they are the flowers

we planted yesterday.

This is a OOAK GoldieLoo Woodworks design. I have made this sign before but this is the first one of this size (18" X 28" long). It is much larger than it looks.  I used a cabinet door given to me by a good friend of mine several years ago. I really love the way it turned out. I base coated it in Lamp Black & Oatmeal. Aged it all over for a nice Vintage look & feel.
Priced @ $39.00 plus shipping to your zip.

Very cool cabinet door. I've never heard the saying, but I love it too.
