So these are some more old photographs of mine from Flickr and one or two more recent ones
The photograph above reminds me to do a post about seasonal aprons one day
These bowls are not uncommon I think - from the CS a few years ago, also in blue!
This fabric dates from the late 1930s I think - this little scrap I used to adorn the front a Christmas stocking that I made a few years ago - I decorated the top with some lovely old lace and some old buttons
'I don't really want the box thank you all the same'....
'Oh go on we need to get rid of stuff'...
'So do I!'
I handed over my £3...cough, cough..... and carried the box under my arm (bike basket was full of plants.....and cake) whilst steering my bike. The bike and I rattled all the way home. When I reached base camp I found not one deer but two! How these have survived undamaged for years (and the bike journey) I do not know.
I had never seen anything like these before so I Googled 'glass deers' and found this information about them . They are little mercury glass survivors from the 1920/30s so deserve their place in chez Cootard I think.
Ever since that summer they have lived on the mantle piece - enjoying the space around them and taking in the fresh air devoid of shoe box atmos!
I will be putting holly in them for this month
More deer puns welcome.
