Hello Tuesday



Here's a really quick hello from me - 
I've been perched in my recent chair find
 devouring the latest issue of Rum
which had a Paris theme this time (always fine by me!), 
and included this elegant home
As for the chair, 
 the 1950s pared-down Swedish beauty 
was a bargain from a garage sale
 at the weekend
(a rather upmarket 'garage sale' I hasten to add, 
held at a photographer's studio). 

Tonight it's the third session
of a photography course I'm taking this spring,
trying to become closer friends
with f/stops and apertures among other things.
I'm thoroughly enjoying it!

    1. Juu, tämä valo on hemaisevaa
      ja päivätkin tuntuvat yhtäkkiä roppakaupalla pidemmiltä.
      Tuoliin olen kyllä niin supertyytyväinen!
      Voi olla, että siirtyy olohuoneesta eteisen puolelle,
      kunhan joskus siellä homma valmistuu.

    1. It sure is
      - and so sturdy and comfy at the same time.
      But my daughter's hogged it as her personal tv watching chair.

  3. Beautiful pic! I'm so lost with apertures! Had a one-day-photography course in November - too much in one day, no time to digest all that information.

    1. I think it would definitely be too much in one day
      ... I've now had three 3-hour lessons
      and plenty more to come.
      And suddenly I feel it's sinking in
      and gradually also going into the backbone
      - I haven't been shooting automatic for a while now,
      which feels like such an achievement for me, x

  6. Lovely chair and I love the pillow. Today I found some lovely ironstone platters at a flea market. Flea markets, garage sales, thrift stores...where would we be without them? What fun. :)

    1. Secondhand finds just beat 'regular' shopping, big time!

    1. Hei Riikka, niin mukavaa kun löysit :)
      Lattiat on joo alkuperäiset,
      korkkimaton alta niitä ollaan pikkuhiljaa otettu esille ja käsitelty.
      Ilman muuta tulen kurkiimaan!
