Sunshine, Camera, Photos
You know how one thing leads to another, I guess that's how most of us got here! this morning we put the Christmas decorations away (hooray) and as my husband was crawling around in the eve's cupboard he pulled out 3 (I don't know how many more!) boxes of what I shall refer to as nik-naks. As I started to unwrap each piece it was like rediscovering long lost treasures. I knew it was all up there but I had kind of switched off thinking about my lovely things as strictly speaking I shouldn't be getting them out when we have yet to finish restoring the house, but I just couldn't resist a few of them.....
This little felt bunny pincushion my Granny bought me for 25p. I have a extremely vivid memory of the event as she didn't have enough money with her so we had to go home and then go back hoping it was still there. This was back in the 60's or early 70's so 25p was a princely sum.
On the plate is Harry's first collar, it was the smallest one I could buy and yet it was still too big for him when we bought him home. I get all emotional when I look at it, which considering he's just a dog, and a mad one at that is quite ridiculous.
I'm going to put a few more photos onto Flickr so have a look if you want.
