1 July 18: Coffee table fable

Ugh. Morning-after-a-party head and it ain’t pretty so here’s my living room (which I think IS pretty) instead. Did I ever tell you about the coffee table (in the foreground)?

I spent literally a decade searching for the perfect table. I looked at nearly a gazillion. Eventually, joy of joys, I found this turquoise beauty on @etsyuk and my quest was over. It’s an old engineering bench and I adore it: the patina is perfectly imperfect, a story told through years and years of scratches, scrapes and dints.

It’s so heavy that it takes two people to lift it but it’s sturdiness does also mean you can dance on it. And I have. Right, I’m off to drink tea. Catch you later.
