"Grand Livre" French file box, circa 1900. It is one of two antique files storing notes for ongoing editorial projects. Click photo to observe the time-worn patina.
It's been a beautiful, sunny, fall-like day in Amsterdam - and I've been privileged to visit interiors filled with remarkable antiques and vintage collectibles. Nothing like a little inspiration to spark rearranging my office! (Photos coming soon). Plus I've been doing a bit of holiday shopping, as parcels mailed internationally can take weeks to reach their destination (depending upon how long they languish in customs).
