Toot.


Ok, here it is, and there's quite a lot of it I'm pleased to say.
Photobucket
A baskety-bag.
Photobucket
A nice bit of sturdy embroidered cloth - the pattern is regular but there are patches of oddness - like the black patch at top left.
Photobucket
A funny, pewter, corner shaped pot. Pewter is good.
Photobucket
An enormous bracelet type thing that I have to find out a little more about. It had a pot stuffed in the centre and was sold to me as a tealight holder but I think it might be something more interesting.
Photobucket
Two dolly heads. Doll on the left has obviously been in a box a while - bored.
Photobucket
It's very hard to do anything with dolly heads that doesn't end up looking like an angsty art project - even just labelling them.
Photobucket
Wicker bag.
Photobucket
A slightly nuts bit of weaving.
Photobucket
A handsome skipping rope.
Photobucket
A couple of bits of Indian mirror work
Photobucket
Very sweet.
Photobucket
A bag . . . from the 90s. (I'm sorry)
Photobucket
A casting mould in very fine colours. It comes in two parts and each side would be pressed into sand (and jiggled slightly to allow for the shrinkage on the metal) and parts get cast from the sandy indent.
Photobucket
Or it could make a nice industrial alternative to an African mask on your wall.
Photobucket
This little ones for something Rolls-Roycey. Swish.
Photobucket
A view of the inside.
Photobucket
Look at this barmy bit o' cloth. Fifties, and in a weird ethnic style. What's your favourite bit?
Photobucket
That's my favourite bit too!

This is Maude. Last week she was admitted to hospital with stomach pains. In a protracted and life-threatening operation the surgeon managed to pull over a metre of woollen rope from her insides. And now she's feeling much better.
Photobucket
A wonky basket.
Photobucket
And finally a very fine hoopla board.
This evening I have to try and catch up on lost episodes of The Killing, and tomorrow I'm off to market! See you there?

  1. I love that bag (the 90s one) how big & how much is it?

  2. If I was there, I would pop ovet to the market! But I am not there. Though part of me, or my soul or my heart is. Hard to describe, but I have a constant longing "home", even if it is years and years ago since I moved.

  5. I'm afraid the hoopla is sold! (to a reader of this very blog, how nice) but the 90s bag has been held back and I'll list it on etsy next week.
    Nina, don't miss here too much - i think you're dead good for being bold and moving away.
    And Anonymous - I would never eat a kitty, even if it was free.

  6. Maude is being terribly English about her tapeworm. Best not to talk about these things.
