Before we went to PFI on Thursday, Annie and I went to Antique Liquidators to look for a little cabinet or sideboard for me. We saw many nice, simple cupboards, but I was persuaded to buy this complex Belgian thing (the antiques people called it a sideboard, but I don't think they usually have an extra cupboard stuck on top) with marble and mirrored doors (note the bits of me visible in the mirrors). Noble Billy Warner agreed to help me fetch it, and was sad when he saw how big and delicate it was. We managed to get it out of his truck, up my stairs, and reassembled without dropping the slippery marble or breaking any of the glass, and it fits in its spot better than I'd feared. Now I just have to figure out what to put in its cupboards and and what to display in its little niche. Maybe my Guanyin?
