Blanket chests may not be considered a necessary piece of furniture to many in this day and age, but they were extremely necessary to families of the past eras. Many young women were given dowry chests to fill with necessary household items. They crafted quilts, blankets, crocheted items, baby clothes and bed linens to name a few. On their wedding day, these blanket chests were proudly placed on the wedding wagon for the newly weds to take to their home. Other young women did not receive a hope chest until their wedding day, but the chests were still filled with the many needed items to run a household.
Whatever is bouncing around in your head and your heart, if its not leading you to become a better you, its time to clean out that mental junk drawer! I invite you to let go of all that stuff for a moment. Close your eyes and envision the person you want to be-that person you are meant to be. See that future version of yourself that may seem impossible now or it might be a more easily attainable short term goal. You have to see where youre going in order to get there. Every journey has a destination. It would senseless to leave your home, get in your car and start driving without a destination. Once you have cleared out all the negative thoughts from your mind, you can start to imagine your future in all of its glory. Do you ever feel like you were created to be more than what you are? If you look at the stuff in your junk drawer, is it serving the vision of where youre going or is it keeping you stuck where you are? Start cleaning out all those beliefs and thoughts that keep you from being all you can be.
Along with the sulfur inlay used in their beautiful designs, ivory, shell, contrasting colored wood and bone were additional materials placed into the wood chiseled incisions. Many of the blanket chests crafted in Pennsylvania by German immigrants were artfully inlaid with leaf and floral designs flowing out from vases. The vases would have been created out of one of the additional materials.Sulfur inlay was also used to create string inlay and inlaid keyhole escutcheon in geometric patterns as an additional design element. This inlay was very fine in detail so that all of the designs created were very sophisticated in appearance.
