i love finding things, and so much here is discarded, sadly there are small rubbish dumbs everywhere, well sadly for the environment but not for me, when i talk rubbish i is not meaning food, out on a walk with gabi and the new pooch the other day we came across some stuff. This lovely heavily distressed brass plaque advertising cotton and cloth, its embossed and i think the patina on it is made by whitewash
then this toy, which is just lovely, especially this one shot that gives it an anthropomorphic feel, sadly neglected and cute faced.
things really don't get made like this any longer, the props are always plastic nowadays, i'm an expert, having a son who always broke the propellers of the planes he had.
and i've been working on the pouch a bit more, yea pouch not pooch, its kind of inspired by Cappadocia, the idea of it, the history and descriptions i've heard
inside i'm going to put a rolled up scroll on vellum, did some gold leaf on this, something i got from Gabi - that was her grandfathers and i've been playing with on various things with greater and lesser success, this one worked and there is more round the other side, still thinking what to hang from the bottom ring
