Lots of new loot coming to @boholoot 🌿Including this lovely vintage rattan swivel chair😍. I have 2 of these available. DM if interested! Will be posting all of our new stuff over the next few days! ✌️🙈🌵
I sourced this beautiful deer 🦌 head from trademe (the New Zealand version of eBay) it was a real treasure along with a sad story behind it. I drove all the way out to Bombay hills, to a white woodern renovated old small church on top of a hill. I cautiously walked up to the door but it was a beautiful warm bright sunny day and I knew it was a woman I was going to meet (however at the low price of the deer I thought I might be being lured out to some rural horror house.) knock knock .Come in come in she said, a sweet woman in her late 40s. I stepped in.
Wow. She was a collector of all things quirky, a magical emporium of eclectic taste, I explained I was an interior designer and she needed to be in a magazine, she politely declined modestly. It was a surreal sight and I desperately wanted to take a million photos, but I was polite and formal. The lady went out back of the old church to get the head for me and two sweet little girls poked their head out the balustrade at me from above and giggle. Their mum came back and I was so astounded by it and it instantly took my breath away. She then told me the history. Sadly her husband died the year before in a car accident leaving her and her two girls behind. He had shot the dear 30 years ago himself however it was not something she wanted to keep. I didn't ask any more questions but it seemed odd considering she has a huge stuffed peacock in a glass dome on a shelf in her lounge. In fact I can't recall the wall colour as they were completely full with a collection of everything you can imagine. She explained the scull had damage and her husband handmade a wooden plaque to hang it on bit it was broken, both these things I never noticed as I was in love with it. She pointed out the yellow moss growing on the antlers and apologised as it had been outside, however all I saw was more character, and lastly how it had 6 points one side and 5 on the other.
I put it in the car boot at a struggle due to the size and drove home all the way crying at how sad I was they were without a father or husband. This find is so very precious to me, a real true treasure I found. #shortstory#story#storywriter#bombayhills#ramarama
Not sure if you saw my stories but I shared the bad shape this chair is in unfortunately and my latest @homegoods find that i just bought to put in its place. 😯 And now I feel like it’s all a little off and I might go back to putting a chaise there instead! Decisions, decisions... hop on over to my stories and tell me what you think. Pretty please?!?!
