Good morning, everyone. It's still dark but it is dry and not that chilly and today's Beeb forecast of 'sunny intervals and a gentle breeze' sounds very pleasant.
As hoped, yesterday was a slow moving, gentle day with plenty of time to chill and relax. I did get the ironing done which I was pleased about, and I sorted through some clothes.
Here's a couple more things I brought home with me. They're not from the attic or anything, they are a couple of things that were on display and so far I've chickened out of transporting them because they are fragile, one in particular.
This one has joined my owl collection which has gone significantly up-market since I took Mum and Dad's owls. This is one I actually bought for them years ago as a wedding anniversary gift, I think. I know it was broken and Dad repaired it but you can't see the join.
Apologies for the light.
I love it anyway because it is owl but I also love the detailing on the 'wood' - such dear little acorns and oak leaves.
This is the other; another of Mum's village collection. It's the biggest one, in fact, and I love it - well, I love them all really. I also have a collection of miniature buildings and, when I have them all safely here, I will devote the whole shelf to my own little village (maybe it will be a mini town by then!).
Again, the light is terrible, sorry. But isn't it beautiful? And aren't I fortunate!
