A box without hinges, key, or lid, yet golden treasure inside is hid

J.R.R Tolkien

Our home in Bobbio Pellice has a tiny circular window high up on the crest of the roof line. Although I searched I couldn’t find it inside. My husband being a little more inventive worked out that it must be over the second bedroom.

Pushing the ceiling panels he soon found the secret opening and a loft filled with hidden treasures documenting the history of the house.

Using on old handmade wooden ladder Sam and Carina braved the loft and were soon passing down ancient baskets, round green bottles, an old stirrup, a partially made boot, a leather suitcase, old magazines from the 50’s, a hand drawn map with a child’s writing…..each hidden treasure a window into the lives led here.
