Shades of white

This pretty old chair is yet another find from 't Gemakje. To my boyfriend's great relief this time paint job is not required. I am not quite sure what technique was used to create the pattern on the seat, but it looks great. A light coat of wax brought the pattern out even more.

The weather has been absolutely amazing during the past week. Blue skies, sunshine and warm temperatures. We spend as much time as possible out in the garden, just enjoying ourselves. I keep splashing on sunblock and try to stay in the shade (I am not much of a sunbather), but still I ended up with a lovely strawberry coloured nose...

Tuoli on ihana!Sopii täydellisesti tuohon huoneeseen!Täällä sää muuttui kylmemmäksi ja pilviseksi,yöllä taisi tulla muutama tippa vettä, ja näyttää siltä että lisää vielä tulee.Vaan eipä haittaa,luonto tykkää:)

The chair is lovely. Especially the seat. I live in the Netherlands as well. I had a mild sunburn just drinking a cup of coffee with a friend on a terras saturday ;-)
I love your blog.

Beautiful chair! I'm just coming across your blog. Love your photos - I am a sucker for all things "spring". I, too, love the ever-changing spring garden. It looks absolutely beautiful where you are.
I'll check back!

Thank you for your lovely comments. Today has been yet another warm sunny day. There was a little bit more breeze today, which suits me perfectly! It must be my Nordic blood that does not mix well with very warm temperatures ;-)

Hi Desiree, the shop you are describing sounds very much like 't Gemakje. If it was packed full with white painted furniture it definitely was that shop.
