Another one of my favourite things. I bought this vinatge curly cane bedhead from @katherinetheoldboathouse far too many years ago. I do believe Katherine that it was the very first thing I purchased from you. I love how striking it is against my black walls.

Rust. Some real. Some painted with Porter’s Paint Liquid Iron and Instant Rust.

Old pottery bottles. I have dozens of these but they are packed away in a box at the bottom of a big pile of boxes. Hmmmm. Should I dig them out and scatter them around the house?

I love my beni ourain rug. So soft. So thick. Bitch to keep clean. I send it out almost every year to be washed and in between it gets a regular shampoo. The reason why it gets so dirty so quickly? Four legs and a fur coat by the name of Mickey the wonder dog. It’s his favourite spot to curl up. Oh well the price we pay for pretty things.

P.S. Also love my vintage Tanderra chairs. Thick leather seats, chunky timber pole legs and aluminium struts. By Brisbane furniture designer Robert Dunlop in the mid-70s.
