Not my house alas! Just grabbed those pics off some guy's blog as examples of hall chairs in situ. Mine is not quite so grand but we do have a large hallway and staircase that needs filling up, once we've finished restoring the floors and decorating.
I did English and walked into a job, but I am brilliant.Also it was the middle of a boom.
Thanks. I'm hoping they won't look too wacky in situ, arranged amongst other pieces. Something like this - or this -
I wouldn't try ironing a tie. I find the creases left by knots fall out soon enough (all my ties are stored hanging on racks except knits, which I roll). Send the stained tie to a good dry cleaner.

Thing is, they had brought their kids instruments with them (looked like violin and guitar cases).

You know, I only caught up on this thread last night, and was very sad to read about Genevieve. This must have been obvious as my wife asked what I was reading. It was very difficult to explain that I was upset because a few days ago and thousands of miles away a cat I never met belonging to a guy I don't know had died. I didn't even attempt to tell her that said cat had been one of the most entertaining and dignified posters on the forum.
