Can i bring it home please??



On the stitch and bitch weekend we went garage saleing and happened to run across this sale that wasn't really on but the kind man let us in any way. It seems he had one the week before and still had the sign up, which is what i had spotted in a fleeting moment of him opening his garage door.
On our search for all things sewing i noticed some retro mosaics under a pile of stuff. Normally tiles wouldn't interest me at all but there was something about the tiles that stood out too me. I could only see a third of the design but i found myself asking how much they wanted....they didn't know. In the back of my head i was thinking,"just offer him twenty and see what happens" but i felt mean and offered him fifty....they accepted.

So i scored this coffee table without seeing the full design. Imagine my surprise when i found out the design was two women prostrating themselves before a man...kind of creepy....and kind of some sickos fantasy.

When he lifed the garage door the next day there it was in all its glory, facing me with the design, and no escape. I had a moment of regret and horror. Would this even be allowed into my house??

I managed to find a willing victim to cart it home for me and once it was sitting in my living room i found it was really growing on me....it fit well with the couch and i was fond of its large and chunky nature...it was made on the back of a full sized door after all.

Now i love it again and dont regret my purchase. Still not keen on the nature of the design but love the colours. No one will EVER own a table like this one...it certainly is original.
