My 99th post - hurrah!
Just a quick one, I didn't want to leave it a week without posting, especially as I had found a couple of good things recently.
on Vix's good authority I'm informed this is the incarnations of the Hindu Goddess Parvati -called Durga.
She was £2 from a charity shop
On Saturday we went to another jumble sale - no drug paraphernalia - but I did find this rather unusual Wedgwood teapot - I need to ask an expert about it as I can't find this colour combo online at all
still at 20p, even if it's missing a lid it has to be a bargain!
ooh I added some purple dye to my hair
Here's some extremely sexy glasses I found, but didn't by - WHY THE HELL NOT? you're asking yourselves, as they clearly make me look so hot.
I've updated my postcard tumblr blog
please take a look, I own all the postcards and ephemera on it, nearly everything has been found at antiques and second hand book shops or are family memorabilia
So even if I've STILL not done any art, at least I've been collecting some interesting material.
More recently I've been tracing my family tree with my Mum and whatdya know, I really am a country bumpkin. I've even traced my 6x great grandfather - John (they're nearly all called John) - living in the same parish as I do now. Scary. I even had a dream about all these relatives being a cacophony of voices talking to me.
Genuine Victorian child relative's grave...
Right that's it. Nice macabre note to leave on.
I'll be back soon with more spoils and hopefully some art.
Here's a photo of a lady I've just discovered who intrigues me - Cleo De Merode
