That'll be a cuppa infront of the wood burning stove I'm talking about. Turning a grey day into something positive is good for morale don't you think?
It's like the other day, when we went out for a coffee, and Hugo bought a huge slab of of carrot cake to go with my drink, I found myself saying "that'll be good for my curves". A positive way of looking at an enormous, almost intimidating, slab of cake. I ate it all of course.
Anyway, I had planned to wax lyrical today, about my drive back from Edinburgh on Saturday night, after going to see the film 'Little Fockers' (which left me with lots of feel good factor for the entire hour drive home). I was going to go on about the deep dark sky, full of charcoal smudged clouds, and the beams of the headlights carving through the black night, with barely another car on the road. But then I found these photos I've never shown you, these chair photos, and I got very excited.
So improbably comfortable, but once sat on, very nice for the back.
I vaguely recall a short debate with Hugo, about the proportions of these chairs. The legs are quite plain and delicate, whilst the top half bulges with abundance, and I think Hugo thought they were too top heavy. My argument would have been that they're just so fantastic, maybe a little too top heavy, but charming enough to be perfectly adorable.
No, they're perfect.
The chairs were part of a beautiful garden, and as usual, we were in awe at being allowed into the private haven of the owners. I can't remember the name of the garden, but apparently it's opened up for charity over two consecutive weekends. I think that's incredibly generous of the owners. To have complete strangers traipsing over your beautiful garden, (I saw the appalling sight of a man with a pram forcing his way along a narrow path, trampling plants along the way, when there were plenty of other paths he could have taken), not once, but twice, is the epitome of generosity don't you think?
Well, I must pootle off, to work on a paper mache pig, her name is Louise. I'm also creating some more Evangeline's, she's too much of a character to leave at just the one figure. Cheerio. Love Vanessa xxx
