Last weekend my husband finished pulling the carpet up on the stairs and made it into my grandson's bedroom exposing this gorgeous floor.
After giving the newly revealed floor a good cleaning, I couldn't help but notice how the shadows of the window panes made the sun dance across it.
To think it was there all along hidden under wall to wall carpet just waiting to be revealed. I suppose when the previous owner had it covered in carpet the thrill of the old wooden floor had faded and carpet provided the warmth and comfort they desired.
I can imagine the children who slept in that room before, playing with their cars and trucks and dolls and buggies just the way I know my grandson will play with his toys now.
Isn't it funny how what was old and worn to them, is fresh and new to me? It didn't take long for Bear to feel at home on it either.
My simple pleasure this week is rediscovering hidden gems for a new generation.
