You Never Know

So Sally found this trunk at a sale, and it was locked. Not a particulary old trunk by any means, nothing real unique about it. Her daughter helped her pick the lock (no, they're not professionals!), and inside was a million dollars!!! Oh alright, not quite..but definitely someone's once upon a time treasure.



These Native American dolls are very old. Some are wood, some are cloth, some are homemade. Think of the little fingers that lovingly touched these dolls, smoothed the fabric on the skirts and talked in sing-song play voices for them. And yet there's more....



This album was in there too. I haven't researched to see exactly what the 'Official Government Photographs' meant for an album like this, but just to get our hands on it and gently look at the pictures.....


...well that's a treasure in itself. Many of the pictures have been dampened over time, worn with age and have lost their black and white images, however a few linger. People that will remain a mystery to us, but who once took the time to record their story and cherish it in a book like this.

You just never know.....

That is absolutely amazing! How exciting she and her daugther must have been when they opened the truck and found anything let alone what the did find.
