Happy St Patty’s Day! I hope you are having an enjoyable one. I treated myself to a facial and then went on a hunt for corn beef and cabbage. Plenty of cabbage in Okinawa but no corn beef. I wonder if the family would eat fish and cabbage?
Since most of our furniture went into long term storage, we have been on the hunt for a few pieces here in Japan. Sounds tough, huh? It’s been a little bit of a challenge because most of the Japanese furniture is on a smaller scale. It fits my children and me perfectly but my 6’1″ husband looks hilarious trying to get comfortable. We have searched the antique and thrift stores but most pieces are pricey because we are on such a small island. However, we were lucky the last two weekends! Check it out…
If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember this pair of chairs we found at a recycle store. They are sleek and chic but big enough that I can curl up into one.
Don’t they have a great shape?
It surprised my husband that he loved such a modern piece. Just before we found the media stand, my husband spotted this Chinese traditional bookcase. It was a steal for around a $100. We didn’t even knew we needed it! It has two drawers with beautiful metal pulls.
I found it on base at a local vendor. When I saw it, I knew the stairs was the perfect spot for it. 🙂
Now the only thing we need is a kitchen table and chairs! Then I can concentrate on organizing and decorating. Woo hoo!
