Old. New. Found. Blue
Ok enough of the practicalities for the moment; there seems to be a bit of a blue theme going on in here, so I have grouped a few of the images together and will explain their origins:
The blue children’s chair has been left here since I bought it back from the other house, I have yet to find a permanent place for it so it sits rather impractically against the radiator, ready to be moved. The old sledge was bought purely for aesthetic reasons with the intention to hang it on the wall, however when we tried it, it stuck out too far, so down it came and now it acts as a place for the phone and a few old books.
The typewriter painting is by Jantze. http://www.jantzetullett.co.uk/
This is echoed by my own Imperial tab-o-matic, a wonderful charity shop find; behind this is propped a children’s wooden foot measure; following a bad motorbike accident, D gave up work and took a temporary job at a storage warehouse, this item was found in an abandoned crate, what a great discovery – and free!
The blue jug belonged to my grandmother Frances. I’m not sure if it was a gift or if she bought it as a souvenir whilst on holiday, apart from a chipped lip it seems to have been well looked after, but sadly I have no recollection of her using it.
