I am always fascinated by the things you see laying about the streets of a city - my regular reader may recall that in Rome it always seemed to be shoes cast aside in pairs (?????) that I discovered on the street. Here in Ottawa it seems to be furnishings that end up on the street including this lovely piece of Japonisme I saw leaning against an apartment building reflecting life around it.
A fine piece to grace anyone's living room or for that special bedroom - don't you think? Well at least its not on black velvet!
