What We Do On The Weekends

"Leave me to do my dark bidding on the internet", What We Do In The Shadows.

I’m very pro-buying-secondhand and for the most part it’s all I tend to buy. I’d even go out on a limb and say close to 80% of the design pieces I own are thrifted or nearly new. But this week Robert and I bought a very big not so secondhand piece.

It’s something we’ve been thinking about getting for a long time. We sat and thought about it for a few months, weighed up the pro’s and con’s and carefully considered our options. I even put it in a Google SketchUp model. And last night we finally bit the bullet and ordered the thing! I can’t wait to share more once it arrives in a few weeks*, so for now all I will say is it is beautiful and I can’t wait to see it IRL. And what better excuse than to put one of my favourite What We Do In The Shadows quotes on our letter board.

*My vagueness is down to me being worried that us finally buying the thing is now jinxing its arrival. I don’t understand my brain either sometimes. I’ve also missed writing short little casual blog posts, so here’s a little pointless one to start.

    Ooooh, this is exciting! I think I know what it’s going to be…!! I hope it arrives as planned and am looking forward to pictures!

    I love that quote – it’s perfect for you really 😀 (And I nearly just bought that candle/bowl online, but delivery was too much… I’ve not written it off completely yet, though!) xx

      You just need to add MOAR to your shopping cart, Miles! Then that quote will apply to us both.

    Don’t do this to me ALEX!!
    I must know what the thing is!
    What is it?
    Tell me!
    Nevermind, don’t tell me…
    Aww, reverse psychology never works in my favour.


    Also, can’t wait to see what you bought! xox

      I think you will love the thing, Pat. It very much has a MCM vibe to it, and it’ll actually be arriving today; 3 weeks earlier than we expected! I am about to loose my mind waiting for the incredibly vague delivery time of “sometime on Saturday”.
