My Grandfathers brother lived in this house for many years and we would visit him quite often for a yummy meal of mutton and 🥃 ( we didn’t get the 🥃 obviously ) . As kids , we had to entertain ourselves and never ever say the B word ( BORED ) so on these visits , I would snoop around and find ways to entertain myself . I remember looking at this photograph on my Uncles desk- a lady on a beach with hairy armpits - I wasn’t sure whether I should be shocked by the hairiness or whether it was ‘cool’ . Who knew ? We had to decide these things on our own since there was no social media to form our opinions back then. This lady was an artist - she made a few scribbles for my GrandUncle -selling one got him a new car and one got him a trip around the world . ( famous hairy lady !guess who ?!) What amazing lives did the people before us lead ? From our own families ! Of course , even this house is amazing which we didn’t even think of back then but now when I walk past it , it’s like looking like a pot of gold I can’t quite reach . ( Facts to be confirmed by @ampsoo or @robinnakai because my memory is not as good as theirs or @virnakai . )
Inspiration: Georgia O'Keeffe with a Butterfly Chair frame in her courtyard. The butterfly chair, also known as a BKF chair or Hardoy chair, is a style of chair featuring a tubular frame and a large sling hung from the frame's highest points, creating a suspended seat. The Butterfly chair was designed in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1938 by the architects Antonio Bonet, Juan Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari Hardoy who were working with Le Corbusier's studio, and who formed the architectural collective Grupo Austral in Buenos Aires. The chair was developed for an apartment building they designed in Buenos Aires.
