Pugs are the most adorable creatures ever.
Pug on an Eames chair. How cool is that?
This week, Andrew and I chanced on a pair of pug bookends at Borders, and decided to purchase them as soon as we set eyes on them.
We got a pair in white. And now I'm thinking of getting another pair. In black. So that I can have them in black and white, like this.
Over the past two years, I have amassed other useless but cute things ...
Clockwise from top left: Black Muji chalkboard nesting dolls from Japan; Fred Matryoshka Measuring Cups; Smiggles Owl Money Box from Down Under; and a set of China-made Russian dolls from Harbin.
I seem to have something for Russian dolls ya? Can't decide whether I like the Muji or the Fred dolls more. The set I have from China (a gift from my parents' travels) has strange Europe-inspired Chinese painting scenes on the dolls' tummies. The robin-blue owl is my prized possession; I pestered dear Leng to lug it all the way from Melbourne for me.
I have a lot more stuff stashed away somewhere. Such as a banker's lamp, a retro electric clock (a gift from my dad-in-law!) and two sets of retro dial phones. Surely, it will feel like Boxing Day when I start to move my stuff to the new place next year.
And you know what, I'm not exactly sure how all these things will come together... But I know it'll be exciting. Can't wait!
