When Scout is in need of replenishing her stash of props and good old things for decorating, we grab our flashlights and trusty bag of keys and set out to dig. It’s easy to get lost for hours in a trunk filled with postcards and blue ribbons from the country fair. A lovely porcelain tray with a faded gold edge (it must have been elegant once) would be perfect for displaying vintage jewelry.
And then suddenly, hidden in the corner — a basket of old pool balls. There’s nothing like a good treasure hunt to get the mind wandering.
