Yesterday morning Rob ventured off in a strange way. We had visitors coming over for lunch and about 40 mins before they were due to arrive he said he had to go and get ‘something’ that he needed this week. Weirdo. I didn’t think anything of it, rather that he would just hurry up, and when he arrived back he told me he had my Birthday present picked up early (my Birthday isn’t for a few weeks yet) because he wanted to make sure no one else would get it. He’d been to my favourite local vintage store Dirty Janes to one of my favourite stalls in there where we have got heaps of stuff for home from (aqua chairs, sideboard, dresser etc) when he spotted it online (they upload shots onto their FB page when new stuff comes in). I must admit I had seen it too, but knew I would be on thin ice if I came home with ANOTHER piece of something for home.
Check out my hot new playroom table! It’s an old industrial trolley. All bunged up and wonky. AND AQUA. But, it just may be one of my favourite things ever. As the girls get older, that playroom end of our living space is evolving. Less floor space needed, more table space for drawing, puzzles, playing. This is the perfect thing for that space right now – and I certainly don’t have to worry about precious with it.
Man, I just love it.
Same with those lemons in that bowl in the sunshine. Simple things right? I have been on some weird nesting thing in our home the past few weeks (no, I’m not Hilary Duffed) moving things around, fluffing, cleaning, washing, pottering and this new piece is ticking all the boxes. Thank you Rob and girls, you’ve made this old duck a happy nester x
What’s the last thing you bought for your home?
