I love the colour green.
Its funny how we all seem to gravitate to things we like – I guess you could also throw in people to that.
While my sewing mojo was on a long walkabout I indulged my collecting bug on Ebay.
Years ago before the internet took over our lives I used to like nothing more than perusing junk shops ‘antique’ shops - they are few and far between these days – even in places like Arundel and Petworth there aren’t as many as there were so occasionally I look on Ebay and get sucked into wanting things for a few weeks and then it passes – thank God!
I do think there are strong psychological issues regarding collecting.
I start with something, say a rabbit then by chance I find another one; so there are two but then I think if I get one more a trio will look better and then the next things the house is heaving….I have to keep it in check otherwise I’d be one of those people who can’t move for stuff.
I probably could call myself a reformed collector.
Anyway here is my new favourite green vase adding to my mantelpiece collection of – green things…..
It is metal and I just love how it has aged.
This is a cute little Sylvac vase that will join the other Sylvac vases I have….
The little Scottie dog came from the very talented Fieldy…..I absolutely love him.
