Furniture & Antiques

This week Christine & Hans-Herman finally went shopping at "Möbel & Antikes"/ "Furniture & Antiques". It was a very nice but also eye opening trip for both...

Hans-Herman came with his fast car and here you can see them discussing about "Piff & Paff"... Christine wanted to take them with her but Hans-Herman said: "Sorry, but not in my car".
She learnt: He loves fast cars & no dogs in the car. He learnt: She loves her dogs more than he thought.

Christine loved the shop and also the very kind & friendly owners Mr. and Mrs. Lundgren, who recently moved to Lundby Village and opened the shop. They had a very good range of used furniture and also some lovely lamps, carpets and accessoires. Hans-Herman was very delighted with the black sofa & armchairs!

He also found a modern art print from the austrian artist "Friedensreich Hundertwasser", he really admires. He decided to take the yellow ceiling lamp you can see in the background and a tv set. And Christine learnt: He likes modern furniture, lamps and weird modern art...

In the area with the kitchen furniture Christine spotted two very adorable dachshund sculptures on a table - a wooden one and one made from murano glass. She wanted to buy one for her livingroom, but she wasn´t able to make a choice and it took a very loooong dialog before she chose the wooden one! He learnt: Yes, she really loves dachshunds and she needs hours to make a dicision...

Hans-Herman also needed a bed and his choice was the colourful modern one. After all Christine did not wonder about that, but she was wondering about the fact he carried the "Hundertwasser" around the whole store. She learnt: He is afraid someone could take his things...

In the bedroom area they had also some pictures of Royals and two brass sculptures of a king and queen. Christine loved the pictures and the sculptures but Hans-Herman tried to reason her out of these things, because he thought they are awful, but he didn´t succeed - she took the queen! And he learnt: She is stubborn and has a very bad taste sometimes...

But anyway they had a very nice afternoon together :) Today Mr. Lundgren delivered all the things and furniture at Christine´s house and Hans-Herman will move in tomorrow. But that´s another story...

I wish you all a very happy easter weekend! I´m going to Berlin to visit friends & family, so the next post will take a bit longer.

Hi Nicola. Happy Easter to you too. How precious is this post. I blew up all the photos to see everything. You have some very nice miniatures. I am delighted he bought the double bed instead of the single. Oh boy... I love that she bought something too. This reminds of the song "Getting to know you, Getting to know all about you." Loved it. Thanks...

PS. Still thinking about my 10 things. I will do eventually, just not sure when. :)

Ha ha. Everything is so much more complex than it looks, especially people! Very cute post. Great way to showcase lots of that great furniture at once. Happy Easter CM

Dear Amy and CM :) I´m happy you liked it and how really true are the things you both wrote! ;D I guess it´s in real life, Christine and Hans-Herman will be a very complex couple if they ever will be one - but these are the things that make life with each other more interesting...

It's a great store, much more inviting and attractively displayed than Tim's! ;-) They have a great choice - I'm glad that Christine and Hans-Herman both found things they like - even if they thought the other's choices were awful sometimes!
Happy Easter, I hope you have a great time with your friends and family, and some lovely spring weather :-)

Dear Rebecca - Great displayed :) thank you! But i like Tim´s little overcrowded store very much, too! It took me hours to get all the furniture together, to "build" the store, to change the wallpaper, rearrange each "room" and think about the details, but i liked it very much ;D I had the story in mind and just had to wait for some spare time with good daylight...

Yes, i hope we will have good weather, because we want to go to the zoo and watch icebear "Knut" and all the other animals.

Hugs, Nicola

Hi Nicola!
what a pleasure to read this story! They had a good time, so did I. And they have learnt many things about each other, so have we: she really loves dachshunds, and he doesn't love them too much :) and they have not the same taste at all, doesn't matter who hes a good or a bad taste.
happy easter weekend to your and your family!

Happy Easter to you Nicola!
The antique shop is lovely with lots of really great items! I agree with Rebecca that the furniture was attractively displayed and I loved the story, the dialogue and all the things they learned about eachother! Hope Christine and Hans-Herman will get along well despite their small differences :-)

And have fun with your friends, family and Knut :-)
