“Life offers you a thousand chances…all you have to do is take one.” – Frances Mayes, Under the Tuscan Sun
Last week, I visited the National Gallery of Victoria. I am featuring here for Xingfumama’s Pull Up a Seat Challenge-Chairs at the NGV, a snippet of some chairs from centuries ago and some chairs by women plus a new featured exhibition. Hope you like the tour.
