Little bits of Toot

Yesterday I did my first whole-hearted market stall in what seems like ages: it was nice. And my bank balance feels better. recently I've been working a lot on a project with a group of friends which I will get to show you soon, I hope you'll like it. Also printing is rolling along nicely. So many things - but I think I always need a lot of things to do otherwise I get all limp and listless.
Lucky for you guys I also took a lot of photos of Toot before I trundled it out the door. Here you go.

Science equipment for scientists . . . or maybe just a nice vase.

A bevy of hand mirrors. And one hand.

A Horlicks mixer - also useful for other things mind: could also be used to mix Ovaltine.

Fetching paint palettes: already sold to one of my most charmingly eccentric customers.

Beautiful weaving.

A most dashing pot stand: reminding me of an electricity pylon.

A Maclamp - which I thought I maybe should keep, to cement my status as 'blogger' . . . but then I sold it.

And another book with a very fine cover.
The End.
Now go and do something. x


  1. Ooh so many gorgeous things, love that pot stand and those books. x

  2. his its buddug here, i come see you on the market some time, i haven't been in ages, been a bit busy! Are you selling your spring?if you are how much? xxx

  3. The paint palettes are so perfectly perfect. Sad they are sold. :/

  4. Ace toot, don't know how you manage to part with any of it.

  5. Gosh, I kind of desperately want that science vase/stand thing (for styling/floral display purposes rather than chemist-ing (?) ones). Is it still for sale?! I just acquired two new shelving units and I urgently need to up my toot supplies to fill them - the empty gaps are freaking me out

  6. Hello!
    I still have the springs Buddug - I put quite a lot on them because I thought they were special anglepoise ones but they can be cheaper for you (and actually they might not be special anglepoise ones).
    And Joanna, the science equipment is still around!
    I'm not at the market next week but will be the week after.
    Madeleine - I always part with things! Because I'm a knob: even if I like something I keep it for a bit then stop noticing it and persuade myself to sell it. Or someone else I know says they like it and I give it to them because I like to please people: like a labrador.

  7. So many nice things here it's hard to know where to start. But the shot of the chalks is particularly pretty.
