One day I will have acquired so many old bits and pieces that I will probably be able to open up my own little museum. It will be a dusty museum, hidden away in a rickety old building in the middle of some large cosmopolitan city, closed more often than it’s open and riddled with tales of an old lady that haunts it. And that’ll be me.
1. ‘The Fiddler’, a lovely little watercolour (I think?) drawing that I picked up at the antique fair a few weeks ago.
2. Antique wind-up pig. His legs don’t move but his tail whirls around when you turn the key. He has the best face. Looks like he’s got the weight of the world on his shoulders.
3. I finally caved and bought an alphabet key chain from Lawrence. That H has been in and out of my virtual shopping basket more times than I can count. I think I’m going to follow in Kater’s footsteps and put it on a chain and wear it as a necklace.
It’s finally time to open those advent calendars! I’m really looking forward to a Christmas in which the build-up doesn’t involve exams for the first time in four years!
*I say ‘recently’, but what I really mean is ‘things I’ve bought over the past few months and as of yet have neglected to share here’. Sorry, I’m catching up.
