While making other plans…

April 23rd, 2013


emanuelle 03I had a plan, I even made a list but for some reason last Saturday I didn’t come home with a new bike (as planned) but with this: a rattan peacock chair. I’ve been dreaming about owning such a chair for a long time, but I gave up my dream a while ago after months of intensive searching to no avail. Finding one in good/pristine shape isn’t easy. Then, on a sunny Saturday morning, when I was checking out rusty old bikes at the weekly fleamarket and negotiating on prices what did I  see from the corner of my eye…love at first sight! Yet love is never perfect so yes, 3 twigs snapped at the bottom of the chair but you must admit this one is a stunner.
