Treasures in the basement

My grandparent’s basement storage room was always an adventurous place when we were small (and still is). So when my cousin suggested we scavenge the storage room last Monday, I took my camera in one hand and a hand sanitizer in another and started snapping away!ย  And since I haven’t been inside for quite a while, it was so much fun looking at all the old furniture, chinaware, my mother’s closet, old books and some friendly creatures…

One upon a time, the storage was at least 3 times bigger than what it is now and had much more interesting items but most of it was either given away or sold.

Also, my apologies in advance for the misaligned images, I couldn’t fix them on wordpress!

I hope you enjoyed this post!

I know I know! I promised I would post the lasagne and pancakes recipe but I just didn’t have the time to do it. I won’t promise anything but I will try my best to post them this weekend.
