Today I wanted to say thank -you to the person that lives in this house. I don't know this person and no doubt never will but they have given me pleasure for years as I zip past their house, nowadays most commonly on my way to Carindale Shopping Centre, but in the past to Little Athletics and cricket practice. Can you see why...look closely ?
Every day they arrange hibiscus flowers from their garden under the letterbox, a simple but loving display I always think. It has become habit for me to look for them as I drive past. It is a simple post war house and I would think from the garden and so on the owner would perhaps be an older person.
It occurred to me today that perhaps one day they may no longer be there for me to gain pleasure from. I know I will have to drive a different way when this happens as it will be sad. But today I wanted to just say thank -you stranger, I love seeing your flowers they always make me feel happy.
I thought I would also just throw in a few pictures of some of the things we have purchased this week and have made their way over to the WAC. Firstly this mid century camphor blanket box.
Large White Horse Whisky Advertising horses. These came from a hotel and are about 35 cm high.
Huge novelty beer stein, to give an idea of how large you can see the smaller ones to the right on top of the files.
Mid century sideboard. We also got other furniture which I will show you soon.
I liked the shape of this stool, and you know how I like stools....
We got this lovely kitchen dresser on Wednesday and it was cleaned and sold by Thursday, before I even had a chance to show you, but I liked it so much I thought I would show you all anyway.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
