Working from home has its perks to be sure. But often I can get distracted by various pressing needs that whisper to me from the rest of the house. Yesterday it was Chester looking at me with his doggy eyes insisting that a walk was highly over due.
Now, as you may or may not know, for my latest range I'm working with pieces of Laminex as well as lino. I felt that for variation I needed some more sample cards and had been on the phone to Laminex that morning . Yes, they have a sample book available to buy. FOR HOW MUCH?!
Ok. I'll think about that option.
I didn't feel I could go back and take any more from the kitchen showroom near me with out some stern words being spoken, so I was debating plan C while heading out with Chester in the weak winter sun.
And what should I find discarded from the same place I found these treasures?
A box of old Formica sample cards. In great retro colours. The red Formica is a perfect match with the original 50's kitchen table that Mr. BJ and I bought for our first flat in East St.Kilda way back when. It's seen better days, but we still have it.So there you go. Chester the lino sniffer outer comes up trumps again!
