Handsome Boyfriend is a furniture maker, amongst other things.
Some friends of ours in Fishtown wanted to dig up a dead tree outside their house and plant a new one, so he helped them. He’s the guy you call when you need things like chainsaws.
Anyway, Handsome Boyfriend cut the tree in a hunk that he figured he could turn into a piece of furniture. It became a beautiful table that gets to live in my new flower studio until it sells.
He delivered it last night, atop his rugged and manly… honda civic.
Mr. Milkshake supervised everything from the studio stoop.
Handsome Boyfriend does not like having his picture taken.
He would also disapprove of me titling him Handsome Boyfriend.
Luckily any disapproval he ever has manifests itself in only the mildest of eye rolling, so I never learn my lesson.
Getting all of the branch points to be perfectly level was one of the biggest challenges for him.
We sat at the table for awhile, talking about how hard it will be to part with it, though we hope it sells. In the meantime, it will be where I sit down with clients to talk flowers.
