Fresh blackberries and blueberries from a local produce market. Why post such similar photos? The focus is different in each image and I couldn't choose.
Delicious ripe, juicy berries. Time to make a pie, I think. That is, once I figure out what to do with the blue-grey antique French mercantile cabinet (pictured below) delivered today to our petite Paris apartment. Seems I underestimated its size. As you can see, it is now taking up entirely too much space in the middle of the salon, leaving little room to maneuver.
On Wednesday, my objective is to find a place for the cabinet (something else will have to go) or arrange for its delivery to a friend's house near Versailles, who has space to store it (until next spring's move to Amsterdam). The only problem is that the careless delivery guys scraped the front of it on the elevator. Notice the horizontal white streak on the top front of the cabinet (directly beneath the numbered drawers piled on top). Will have to ask the seller to come over with paint for touch-ups.
Have to sort something fast, as house guests are arriving Friday! Back soon with more photos and stories from London and Amsterdam.
