It was almost as old as the mountains it came from, but that pie safe held much more than pies. It held all the dreams of a little girl, and it held all the scents of her childhood.

Sharon...

That is such a wonderful story. I can understand it as my Don (Lladro man) also has a wonderful collection of farm antiques including - 2 Pie Safes and a Hoosier Hutch! I'm so glad it finally came home to you where it belongs, Enjoy Hon!

I need to take a photo of one of the Pie safes for you. It's been put into an entry closet with it's doors open and is displaying all that old glass and old enamalware!

The other one holds towels in the bath. You would love some of the antiques he has collected!

I still haven't decided what to store in mine. And I have the space to leave the doors open too. I have my mom's cranberry glass, tons of pieces, but it needs a light colored back ground and I don't want to paint the interior of the safe. I also have old linens and lace, but that might become a bed for my cats, which I would not enjoy at all. So I am still thinking. So far, it's sitting empty. I do have a pitcher collection, which for the most part is white. So maybe....

Yes, I would love to see Don's collection. I have a solid walled Mission Oak rocker in front and to the side of it now. It's my other prized piece, along with the wash stand where my 'head' pot that you sent me is sitting. I really don't have very many actual antiques, just a few pieces that were built by or belonged to my family.
