auction purchases and lunch tip

in addition to the leather sofa, i did buy a couple other things at last weeks auction.  the portrait is hand-painted.  i love it.  the wall cupboard used to have some indian head decals on the front which have mostly warn off.  i like the scroll work of the sides and the way the paint has worn and aged.

also, i want to share with you one of my favorite things to eat.  here's what you do:  get a good piece of bread which is crusty on the outside and soft and squishy on the in and open it up, spread your favorite goat cheese on one side and drizzle a good quality olive oil on the other, stuff it with sundried tomatoes and good black olives and smoosh it all together and eat it.

you're welcome.

You got the sofa! That is great! I love the cabinet and the picture quite a bit. I have totally done that - bought something to sell and then once at home realize I need to keep it for me, at least for awhile.
