The One That Got Away

Years ago, before I met Mr. Hartmann and lived by myself in a sweet little cottage up the street, I fell in head over heels in love with a French...

...desk. At (where else?) Red Ticking. I passed it up because it just didn't fit anywhere in my little house. When I came across this image of a dead ringer for that sweet desk, I started kicking myself all over again. How could I have let it get away? It would be perfect in our master bedroom. It's like the impractical pair of shoes that don't match anything in your closet. You buy them anyway and just admire them until you can build an outfit around them, right?

There's always space for  perfect piece like this. Pam, if you ever find another, please let me know.


  1. I remember this shot - it's so beautiful! And we all have the pieces that got away - whether furniture, fashion or even people!! I remember reading, I can't remember who said it, that you should just buy the things you love - you'll always find a place for them.

  2. beautiful image! lovely greetings

  3. My Mother-in-law taught me to buy what you love...and always have a measuring tape in your purse....and buy small. That desk is beautiful. I could imagine you there happily creating and sketching to your heart's delight.

  4. BUY WHAT YOU LOVE .... no matter what... you will always find a place for it... always.... xoxo

    ok, will do... but prepare will first! he he

  5. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who kicks herself for a missed purchase for years after!
