And it's good to be back, let me tell you ! Got distracted there for a few months with school work, an internship - or 'work placement' as my purist Brit brother insists on calling it -, meeting a certain someone I really liked (which let's face it, doesn't exactly happen every day)... In short, just life doing its thing.
Ok, if I want to make it to at least three posts this year, I'd better get on with it. Because distracted as I was, I've still been thrifting, flea market haunting and generally spending the last of my hard earned cash from my legal secretary days.
So here are a few glimpses of what I've been up to decorating wise.
My most expensive West German pottery buy to date. Ehem. 50 eur at the Brussels flea market, but - in my defence - I haggled this down from 60 eur, plus I got a second vase for free. But still, after spending that much dough, I ended up eating spaghetti aglio, olio e peperoncino for the rest of the month. These things happen...
See the tall brown fat lava vase to the right. That's the freebie I got with the first one. Pretty cool, huh ?
The seating area. I have been talking about replacing my old battered Habitat couch ever since I started this blog. Well, I finally did it.
This was a total impulse buy. I saw it in a shopwindow, had a chat with the owner, agreed on a half-way decent price and free same-day delivery. The whole thing took less than 10 minutes. And voilà. New (old) sofa !
And on sunny days, this happens... He loves it as much as I do.
On a totally unrelated side note. I also finally solved the mysterious case of the stunted rudbeckia growth.
