Charity shop treasures.

Saw this beauty in the charity shop earlier this week. And I absolutely fell in love with it. It’s an old telephone table/chair. It was 35 euros so really cheap and I would have bought it but sadly I have no room to put it. This version looks pretty new, but I have seen a similar one with red fabric and brown woodwork. Absolutely gorgeous ! I hope I can own one of these some day.

Early b-day gift & blog change

Since my finals are now over (finally !) I have more time for my blog and cooking, reading and whatnot.
Overviewing all the posts I have made since I started this blog, I noticed that it’s not all about cooking anymore. Which might be a good, at least that’s what I think, you’re free to give your own opinion on this. So let’s say this blog is about all my interests and whatever is going on in that head of mine 🙂

So to get to the actual point of this post … Recently I went to a secondhand shop with my dad, just to browse a bit. There was a lot of junk, as there always is, but some pieces really caught my eye. For example a beautiful louis XIV chair, I adored it, but sadly I don’t have enough room to use it.

Then today we went again, and the piece I really loved was still there, and my mom was so sweet to give it to me as an early birthday present. They are a set of pheasants (male & female) and they cost us 8euro/7pound/10 dollar.
Did some research on them and they seem to be a set of silver plated pheasants ( obviously ^^) from Roberto Rossi from the 1940’s. They might be fake I’m not an expert in that field. But I’m really happy with them and they really are gorgeous.

If anybody knows anything more about them, be sure to let me know !
