Spring and new love

Today there has been rain, snow, and now big fluffy clouds bathed in a beautiful amber light.  The clouds are like the ones you see from the plane.  They look like freedom.  Like when I got my first car, a bright red and shiny Mazda that I would drive fast from Toronto to Montreal.  And then packed everything up in it, and moved away.  It's also the feeling of freedom I get when I sit in my seat in an aeroplane on my way somewhere...  An incredibly heady feeling. The feeling of Paris in the spring.  I need Paris like I need oxygen.  And the ferry to Capri.  The ferry to Capri washes away all the bad things, all the stale things that have somehow managed to get encrusted over one's soul.
In less than a month I'll be on my way.

In the meantime, there's a new love in my life:

The Midnight Special

Just in case we needed another reason to miss the 1970s.  Seriously.  Miss Pat!  Putting 2011 to shame.


I haven't been shopping at 1st Dibs in a while.  I love all these tables.  They singlehandedly conjure up a room or a story.

Brass nesting tables, France, 1960s

Marquetry table, Holland, 18th c.

Carved elephant head table, India 19th c.

Coffee table, France, 1950s

Mahogany end table, Ireland, 19th c.
