She covered it with that striped material... er... ah... Regency Stripes... and gave it to my Mum.
2: I held a party when I was 14. My innocent and sweet high school boyfriend... you know, the one you dream of kissing but only do on one occasion because you're both too shy... was moving to Perth. We had gatecrashers who were a bit rough and somehow knocked the back off. It's a weak point I guess... so Mum and Dad put it under the house...
3: ...where the upholstery rotted. A few years before my separation 11 or 12 years ago, they gave it to me.
4: My (ex) husband promised to have it fixed up. Mainly because he never bought Christmas presents and gave me an IOU the day after Christmas out of guilt. But, as money came and went for a few years... more promises were made, ala Birthday etc... but no go.
5: We separated and soon after recieved a big tax refund and I said to a counsellor (we had a last-ditched-effort to find a solution) I was going to fix up the Chaise with my tax. To which the ex said, no let me. The counsellor said it would be a good gesture...
8: 4 years passed. I finally got my share of our money. And ordered the fixing-up there and then!
Pure silk, hand-loomed silk, no less!!!! French. Perfect workmanship. Lots of money, but it had to be.

The lad thought Pink Doll made the bedroom unmanly, so I went to get her friends before his parents arrived, just for a bit of good old-fashioned fun. Can you make out the lamp?? Another Grandma find (I love it but someone else hates it).

Something to do at work when I'm sitting in waiting that requires no brain cells. My cushion biblo magnifica inspied me again... although it's not exactly in there... the concept is. I've given you lots of pics because it's a bit hard to make out, being red and all. Think 'egg carton'.

The tambourine was a gift from a friend. He's given me some choice cuts over the years. Isn't it nice when someone has a really good handle on who you are? (And still likes you). He's a ceramicist. Contemporary. Excellent. Check him out.

The sewing room. Everything in those (funky) green bags goes into the shelves, so it's not as bad as it looks (but then again you can't see it all). Today we go sig up some of our plants, and then that's it for the old place. I'll post some photo's of the niceness as soon as I am able.
The garden's looking great too! A couple of hours with some serious snips has made it gorgeous and tenable, at least for now...
P.S. I want you all to know that it was 37 degrees Celcius when we moved. UP the hill... everything had to be carried up 30 steps. 30! We nearly expired I can tell you, and we have SO MUCH STUFF!! So thanks everyone, and all of you who thought nice thoughts.
