Some antiques

Everytime when it's sunday and I'm at my dad's, my dad, grandmother and I are going to eat something. We're always going to a restaurant called 'De colonie'. After we ate something we went to for a drive. So we were driving and suddenly my grandmother was yelling 'look what a cute store!'. I didn't even see which store she ment. My dad pulled the car over and we went for a look at the store. Apparently it was an antique store. I have a thing for antique furniture. And secretly I'm really jealous at my grandmothers appartment. I'll make some pictures of it some days and than I can show you guys. But we went into the store and I was looking around, when I saw this beautiful chair. It was white painted, but a little bit damaged and the fabric was embroidered. I just fell in love. I showed the chair to my dad and he was a bit suprised that I liked it. It's so 'old' he said. He asked if I wanted it. And I was like 'are you kidding me?! Ofcourse I want it!'. I looked further and saw this cute little closet. White with roses painted on it. And next to it, there was standing a little desk, or something with the same painted roses on it. Well, me and my florar and antique addiction wanted it. But I was a bit afraid to ask my dad I could have it. So I showed him the closet and little desk and he asked again if I wanted it. I just couldn't say no. I just couldn't! And there were those 2 little tables. Oh dear. I just loved everything there. But I was walking further when my dad asked if I wanted those 2 little tables also! So my eyes were big and my mouth was hanging open and I said 'Y-y-y-y-yes!' So I have 2 new little tables, a chair, a little desk and a closet. And it wasn't expensive at all. Especially not for antiques. All together the expenses was about €250,-.

Now we paid it, we had do move it. Get it home. Well that was a little drama. It was 30 degrees celcius outside and we had to move everything into the car. Ofcourse not everything fitted in one time. So we had to drive about 2 times. And now I have a new decorated room. And I LOVE it.
