I don’t think I’m quite a fit to be a housewife, long fancied myself a career woman. OK, that’s a joke. But really, shopping at home store was never my cup of tea. But recently I acquired few new tastes, taking a great interests in home stores, nurseries, and I even bought a set of rosewood Chinese furniture. God, I surprised myself. Given the fact how much I disdained of those zitan furniture, embedded with mother-of-pearl that accentuated my childhood. My first few furniture were snow white Formica, :). Thank god it lasted for only few years. Wood has so much more to offer, beauty, simplicity and elegance.
Few years back, one day I spotted a familiar sight, a zitan or rosewood desk inlay with mother-of-pearl at the Met, belonged to Vanderbilt or Rockefeller. Incredulously, I asked one of my friends who collects things Chinese. He said, ‘oh that desk .. .. it has a long story, was written in the NYT ..’ I never found the article. But gradually, I obviously lessen my dislike of the oldies, :). Reckon that you should never say never.
This basil (top) was a recent acquisition. Those two below are by Golfer. He said he’ll take care of the plants, as usual. Can I do something, to help? Of course make things turning brown, :). Ok, he said the things in the kitchen are under my jurisdiction: this basil, one branch of pepper and the 3 amigos.
