A magazine once asked me 'what would I save if my house was on fire?' Obviously dogs and children aside, it was this wooden box that came top of the list. Handmade, old and for some reason, my very favorite thing. These special (small) things are what turns a house into a home. They are the things that 'explain' us and make us content. When people visit, how often do they focus on these precious items - not on the flat screen or the must have cushion of the season?
How lovely is it to have your special things out and sharing space with each other?
Tin Tin is giddy with the fact that he's sharing shelf space with Alain de Botton. Snowy - not so bothered .....
