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!

Super hieno löytö! Ja ihana talven kuulas valo... I likes :)

Rebecca / Sanctuary said...

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.

Very nice arm chair!

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.

LOVE the chair! A photography course is on my list of to do things for 2013. Enjoy!

Wonderful chair find! I love the color, and your floors are great!

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. :)

Nice blog. I will keep visiting this website very often. I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog.

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

Rebecca / Sanctuary said...

Thanks, I agree :)

Rebecca / Sanctuary said...

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

Rebecca / Sanctuary said...

Sounds like a good plan,
it was one of those things I ticked off for 2013, too.
Hope you find a great course&love it!

Rebecca / Sanctuary said...

Thanks so much Cindy!
I think the colour is what got me :)

Rebecca / Sanctuary said...

Thank you <3

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

Rebecca / Sanctuary said...

Thank you so much!

Hei, löysin blogiisi ekaa kertaa, ihastuin, lukijaksi jään :) Teillä on hienot lautalattiat, ovatko ne vanhat? Meillä on kotona sattumalta samanlaiset, käy kurkkaamassa blogistani, jos joskus ehdit....

Rebecca / Sanctuary said...

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