You might have seen me post on Facebook
about a new vintage Dol-Toi
table that I purchased from UK eBay. I missed the table the first time around (forgot to bid -- don't you HATE that?!) and it went for asking. I emailed the seller to see if she had any more that she was going to put up, and she did! This time, I did bid, but ended paying up. I found out later that I was actually bidding against my blogging friend Rebecca of Rebecca's Collections
. I would have been sad to lose it, but much less sad if I knew she got it!
There is a book on Dol-Toi by collector Marion Osborne -- does anyone have this? It sounds like a great resource. I had never seen a Dol-Toi table with this mid century profile, so I would welcome any information about it and any companion pieces. It worked nicely in my Swedish Brio...I went a little wild with the colors, but I think it "flies."
This is the first time I've used this vintage set of Lundby curtains. They really do help enliven the window, and look like real fabric in the picture (actually molded plastic). The other burst of color is a lovely mod plate by PetitPlat
-- she has a whole selection in her store. Check them out
Have a great week, all!
