Seriously, Deborah? The movers aren’t even picking up the household goods until Saturday morning to send it all on to Australia and you are already feeling ‘nest-y’ again?
Mark and I have embraced the Mid-Century look over the last few years and just as we were leaving Australia, we bought the cute little ‘Sputnik’ table that you see in this photo. Mark refreshed the top with a bright red gloss and the black iron legs and little feet at the end (a punchy lime green) are the original colours.
A fabbo gift — a rocket style lava lamp
What you see in the picture is my Christmas present which I never got around to posting three months ago when it arrived in France with a mere 48 hours to spare before Christmas Day. I always wanted a Lava Lamp back in the original time period but the other people in my life back then thought that it was silly. But guess who never let go of that love of Lava Lamps? Me!
I must have said something about it sometime over the last few years because Mark planted that firmly in his brain and he totally surprised me this year with this gift. And he tracked down the original manufacturer in England to order this totally fabbo rocket ship version. It’s simply hypnotic to have it on in the background of a darkened room while you are watching television or just sitting quietly.
Now I can’t wait to get UNPACKED in Australia and see it again!
Funny photo of the day today — Knit Kits seen in the window of a museum gift shop in Barcelona, Spain. I’ve seen knitted teapot cozies before, but never a knitted bike seat! And knitted cuffs for your wellies?
Ah well — something for everyone, eh?
