Here are some pictures:
I haven’t moved in, because I no longer have it.
Before you all think I have gone even madder than normal, I still have a slimline de Villiers.
Ha! That’s confused you all!
I have Steve from Philofaxy’s (that was Anita’s) red, slimline de Villiers. Still with me?
When the black one arrived, despite its absolute gloriousness, I knew it was not to be because it was black and I need a colour pop and anyway, I had seen Steve’s/Anita’s red one so I knew red ones existed. I contacted Steve and he agreed to swap my black one for his red one.
So, last weekend, the de Villiers crossed the Channel (the red one must have been getting a bit fed up of this parcel to post existence...).
I knew the red one was ‘pre-loved’ (aka battered and well used) and indeed, it was in need of a bit of tender loving care, so I gave it a clean and some red leather polish and some love and now it is drop dead gorgeous (in a well-used kind of way).
[I did a guest post on Philofaxy on renovating it, which you can see here.]
|Interior - interestingly, the mirror-image of the black one|
So now I just have to tweak my set-up a bit so I can move in.
