Known of his infamous chair in particular that all men seem to go all goo and gaa over.
Adored the simplicity.
Eames today ?
Well, all I can say is that I have rather surprised myself and as I sit here with my 1st cuppa of the day I am rather excited.
As you know I adore to thrift (today I am not allowed as have a clearance sale to commence and many gorgeous lots to put in my shop - makes me :( and :) ) and am so happy bumbling around looking at things that simply catch my eye.
Is is a gift, a knack or just simple luck ? to find those SPECIAL things.
Recently whilst in a charity shop I kept asking the lady the price of things. She giggled as EVERYTHING I chose was antique and pricey !!!!! Some things were not inherently beautiful, but just had a charm, an age, a strength of being.
She told me I had a gift - I smiled - She was a lovely lady.
So I bring you to these two little mischiefs that I brought home last weekend that are now in auction.
The Eames Atomic Sputnik Coat Rack
The Eames Atomic Sputnik Magazine Rack
Hmmmmm - pesky little numbers eh !!!!! Little did I know who they were, they just took my eye and spooky as they were being sold separately by two people a stones throw away from each other.
All I can say is yay for little gems and as they give me a little excitement I know that they do my bidders too as all my weeeee auctions start at £0.01.
OK - I have a billion and one things to do and another coffee to make.
..... and before I go
I will leave you with this monkey .....
Some people tell me that I should get books on antiques and read up but I rather like follwing my nose falling in love parting with a few pennies and popping items in my shop in auction ..... start them at £0.01 ..... and watch ..... as desire - hence - value are unique to us all.
This lamp shade sold for tumps/loads/lots but watching and knowing it is so special is priceless.
I only seem to be able to find crochet pattern so as crochet and I have never really goten on maybe I will make up my own knitting pattern ..... all I know is that a few peeps are gonna get some as tiny pressies for Christmas.
