New project!

I have decided to do a crazy thing! Wondering what? Well, I have decided to sell all (almost all-and Pascal agreed) our furniture that was pretty new, and to buy furniture from e-bay that I PAINT MYSELF!! So, our new house is gonna have old-new furniture on which I put personal effort and endeavour, and the project goes pretty good so far. We succeded to sell our eating place (table, cupboard, dressoir and six chairs) for a nice price, a bed that we didn't use anymore, and we bought a table with six chairs so far, and a WONDERFUL, EXTRAORDINARY very old chinese trunk, that I am absolutely crazy about!! The people who sold it said that they have it from their grandparents, and that it was in their family forever. Personally, I would never sell it especially that we can see clearly that it is the real dea! Authentic from the little cracks on the foot, to the smell of the flavoured wood that comes as a surprise when you open it! We also bought a little night stand that was in a terrible condition but I restaured nicely. For the table, which is hand painted, therefore not perfect (but the imperfection makes it worthy), I worked like a slave and Pascal was joking asking if I couldn't have chosen a pattern with two circles or something else very easy instead of the complicated curves from the central design...Well, the paint part ended well, so I don't regret, and the idea of having in my home something I actually participated for, it gives me the thrills... I love to scrub the old wood, smell it and make acquaintance with it! For the moment, the project looks like this (see the photos), but I am busy with it every day, so I will keep you tuned :)

Salutare, dragilor!
Inca lucrezi la proiect sau sunteti plecati in vacanta?
Am trecut asa, intr-o fuga sa va salut si sa vad ce faceti. :)

Abea ne-am mutat si am avut problmeme cu calculatorul. A fost ingrozitor:am fost bolnavi,nu dormit bine in primele nopti aici, si avem ingrozitor de multe de facut si de aranjat. Nu mi-am imaginat ca avem asa de multe lucruri...AM terminat proiectul, am sa pun ceva poze pe blog cu noul interior, am facut deja pozele, dar nu am ajuns inca la cutia cu cabluri ca sa incarc pozele in calculator. Tu ce mai faci? Noi mergem la Paris pentru 3 zile, ca sa sarbatorim 2 ani de la nunta :)doar trei zile...Vacanta asta s-a dus pe zugravit si mutat :(

Cred ca nu e o perioada buna pentru computere :) al meu a sucombat de tot.
Pana nu te muti, nici nu stii cate lucruri aduni. Te asezi intr-un colt si te intrebi cum e posibil. Oricum, astept poze sa vad ce v-a tinut departe atata vreme.
Cum v-ati imbolnavit? Ati racit? Cel mic e bine?
Astept poze si de la Paris. Multi ani inainte, oameni buni si frumosi! Sa fiti mereu fericiti si iubiti!

Si eu va imbratisez, mi-e tare dor de voi si ma bucur mult ca nu ne-ati uitat!! Asteptati curand poze de la Paris si din noul cuibusor de nebunii :) tocmai l-am inscris pe Luca la noua scoala, Pascal incepe si el din septembrie munca in Brugge...totul s-a schimbat, dar in bine. Va doresc din toata inima la fel!
