• 9DR furniture

    I have now enough pictures of (only) some of 9DR's furniture, so I might as well post them; and when I have more from either house, well it'll be a n°2!

    This bookcase used to be in the frontroom, to the right of the fireplace. Mum uses it now. The next pic shows the upstairs front room dressing table which I am sure everybody remembers because we used to play with its three mirrors. It's at home in Normandy, and as you can see, Mum hasn't forgotten its fascination!

    A question about it: why according to you would there have been a leather cushion in the middle part? Decoration? Kneeling? We had a go about it with Noel, but maybe you can give us your idea! And while we're into mirrors:

    Does someone know where the two elements above used to be? (the little bedside cupboard still smells of TCP or whatever used to be inside of a similar nature!)

    This frontroom chest of drawers is now at AB's. The clock is Auntie Olive's. It sat in her front room and had (still has, probably!) the nice Big Ben chime.

    And her nicely refurbished armchairs.

    Here's Mum with the carpet which I remember Monsieur Père and Grandma showing proudly to me back in 1971:

    I don't quite remember, but it must have been sort sort of present, no? Indeed, Noel has just reminded me that it had been a present of Auntie Olive's!

    Vivi forgot to say it had been knitted by her.

    "It had been knitted by her"

    That's not knitted. She must have used a hook with short lengths of wool.

    If you knelt on the cushion and moved the mirrors, you could cut/see the back of your hair more easily.

    That's it! We have a winner! It's the official answer, but did it really work? Can you actually see the back of your head if you do that?

    Okay, now it's time to find out about the places of the girls' bedrooms...
