Happy Happy Joy Joy!


My copy of the Christie's catalogue of the Yves Saint Laurent & Pierre Berge collection of 2o th Century Decorative Arts arrived today. Yay! No matter that its too late to bid, because I couldn't have afforded anything in the sale anyway, unless I'd sold everything I own, including a few of my organs. I would have happily done so had I thought that my husband and I could raise a family someday inside this amazing Jean-Michel Frank cabinet...



Yum!

That is something to be excited about! I'm curious, did you get the entire boxed set or just one? I wasn't sure which one to get if i just bought one. Maybe I should take a walk over to Christies this week and check them out.

David - not sure if this has anything to do with it - but the parcel was sent from a Hong Kong address. They were probably printed here, and sent on demand. I didn't know they had sold out though...

Heather - its the first auction catalogue I've ever purchased and was so thrilled when it arrived. I would have loved all of them of course, but figured this would be the most interesting for me. It's more like a book than a catalogue!

cool. i really want to buy the michael jackson auction catalog, but it's rather expensive...

oh, and the ysl item i would have sold my organs for, was the lalanne bar with the egg shaped cooler and tusk shaped cocktail shaker. so sexy

Suzy said...

Absolutely, M21 - that Bar was definitely worth selling organs for. prefferably not your liver though ;)
