I wasn't going to do anything today.
I was so busy lately fighting off the ends of jet lag but also a blasted cold but I couldn't handle wasting another day at home not even able to finish a proper episode of Black Mirror on Netflix.
Builders on a health and safety break -
it's such a London sidewalk vignette.
I decided I would go to Christie's in South Kensington and see the various previews that were on display at the moment.
After nearly a month in Korea, I missed my auction previews.
The windows were dressed up more than usual and trying to evoke someone whipping up a lemon pasta in a rustic continental European kitchen of loose cabinetry.
There was lots of good items for a certain ilk of house or mood.
I was surprised at the estimate of these
mirrored frames of botanical prints and
they weren't much more expensive than those they sell at Oka.
But then many don't have the patience to save up a little and then wait around for the right prints to come up which is a shame.
These japanned side tables piqued my fancy as well.
My Pinterest compatriots know what I am like about a folding screen.
