Oh, I love days like today, I went to the post office today, hoping that a parcel I have been waiting for would be there. There was a parcel, but not the one I was thinking of, this one was huge and I wasn't expecting a huge parcel from anybody. As soon as I saw that it came from Natalia, my curiosity was awakened, I was expecting a small piece of silk gauze from her, she was looking for some 112 count and couldn't find any, so I agreed to give her some in exchange for some 72 count, but this parcel was way too big and heavy for just a piece of gauze.
And look what I found inside!!! Christmas came early this year :-))))))
A 1923 book on furniture in the Metropolitan museum of art! I absolutely love old books, so this is a real treasure.
The inside covers.
The front page showing the 1923 date.
A chair that I would like to make.
And a lovely dresser, thank you so much Natalia, this was a wonderful surprise gift and I really appreciate it.
And here is a little something for you all, I found this book to download on-line, original copies are quite rare, so enjoy and do look at the rest of the website, it looks as if there are quite a few interesting books, etc to download.
Have a wonderful weekend
Tessie was Right! - Tessie won this one. I made the bolster pillows for her "chair" this morning... If it were the right size, I would be fighting her for it. It really does...
