... and he's right. I haven't yet. He bought it from ES Traders just before Christmas when we were supposed to be on a spending moratorium but he never sticks to those anyway. It's an enamel washstand, basin, jug and soap dish from the Queensland Railway workshops at Northgate. Love me some enamel and I do rather have a crush on this. I was going to put it in the bedroom but there is another washstand in there already. Remember the moratorium? Well he forgot about it again just before Christmas when he purchased a cedar wash stand cupboard that came from a judge's chamber in the old courts in Brisbane before they were demolished. Got that one from the guys at Vintage Advantage who swear they can't reveal their source. Must take a snap of that one day :) In the meantime I pulled the enamel washstand over near the top landing window as it was the only decent light upstairs when I took this photo. So much rain. So many grey days. Thank goodness it seems to have stopped.
Here's the reason why I had to move it. The light was lousy. That used to be home to Mary and Jesus at the end of the strange balcony but they've moved in to share the office with me. Oh look at that pre-painting photo. Thank you Jesus ;) those burgundy doors have gone.
