The Traveling Trunk and a Good Cause

This is the story of the traveling trunk.
She's a true vintage beauty that really WAS used for shipping.  You can tell by the address painted on her.  Not the Paris address, but to the gentleman below.  Wouldn't it be fun to peek into the history of her travels!?
This trunk's character and sturdiness instantly caught my eye.  Oh, the potential...
But a facelift, some TLC and a renewed purposed was desperately needed.

Which brings me to a twist in the trunk's journey.
A wonderful organization recently held their second annual "Laughter is the Best Medicine" Foundation Gala.  Funds raised during this event go directly to the Emergency Room Enhancement Fund at our local Carrington Health Center.  Last year there were 1800 patient visits to our ER and the foundation's goal this year was to improve the ER to offer better privacy to patients.
So I gave the trunk it's facelift, added some legs for a coffee table refunction, and gave her a new (pretend) destination to Paris.
Donated on behalf of the JunkFest Girls for the Gala Silent Auction, here she is...
