This weekend was kind of the reverse of decluttering. Which I guess would be "recluttering." Except I really needed a better typing chair; I was using one of our Chinese corner chairs, but the seat was way too low so an extended typing session was actively painful. Now I have this:
Let us hope it helps me complete the revision of the story series without wrecking my arms. It was cheap and I don't expect it to last forever, but one year/eleven edits would entirely satisfy me. If I can get a thirteenth story out of it, awesome.
Also acquired, various items for bedizening the garden. From Goodwill:
Three totes adorbs little teapots, obviously from someone's de-acquisitioned collection, and a cute elephant votive holder. The ceramic dish will shortly become a beach on which to display several abalone shells, including a big one I found in Mendocino.
Next, from Home Goods:
Since with me it is clearly a case of "no amount of Chinoiserie is too much," a pagoda lantern was a must-have. Currently displayed Inception-style with a bronze pagoda inside.
Finally, courtesy of a neighbor who set this out on the curb Saturday evening:
We think a heavy plate-glass table top we've been hoarding will fit this. It will probably go on the walk-out deck. In any case, I've always coveted one of these carved trunks and NOW I HAVE ONE, FOR FREEEEE.
I love Curb Mart.
