One very exciting thing did happen last week- I took delivery of my brand new coffee table for my 'good room' custom made for me by Quenton at Industria x ...I had seen a few coffee table designs that I like but they were either insanely expensive ( like what my mum and dad paid for their first house expensive), not quite right or not accessible to me i.e in America. Then when I was working at the Vintage Shed I saw Quenton coming and had a brainwave- his factory is local and I was pretty sure they dealt with the materials I wanted mine to be made out of.. So 6 weeks later I have it and couldn't be happier..
I still have to play around a little with what to put on it and the rest of the room still needs a lot ..rug,lamp,cushion etc but all in good time. We have been in our house for over 3 years now and we started from scratch in regards to furniture as we moved from Ireland and decided not to bring any large things with us. I would curse this 'good room' and the fact that it has sat with washing drying in it and nothing else but now I feel lucky because my tastes have changed so much since moving in and love this table so much but am pretty sure I wouldn't have chosen it 3 years ago. As they say, all good things come to those who wait- I have waited not so patiently and smile every time I walk past this room now..
I have also been coveting/wanting a Vintage Champagne bucket for sometime now and have a little dilemma- to keep this or to sell it in my little shared stall at the Vintage Shed ? I might just enjoy for a little while and then when a new obsession comes along I can part with it..
That's about all for today, we are all relieved that our little Tadhgy is much better and giving loads of attitude, hopefully I will be doing the same tomorrow .. Simone xx
