I spent yesterday afternoon down at Proper Job, trying to sort through the portacabin which is going to be the bric-a-brac shop. It's a pretty daunting task - stuffed to overflowing with boxes and sacks of stuff, but it's good to see it starting to get organised. There is a phenomenal amount of kitchenware! Pots and pans ( and several woks that appear to have never been used), cake tins and jelly moulds, and piles and piles of china. Every kitchen implement you could ever imagine needing, and enough oven proof dishes to cook for an army. I love rummaging through and sorting this out. I even found a barely used mini frying pan, perfect for cooking eggs in. At 50p, that came home with me!
There are hundreds and hundreds of glasses - so many are in sets, and some are so fine and delicate I can't imagine using them without breaking. Wine glasses, and sherry glasses, and cocktail glasses, and cut glass bowls in every size and shape you could ever want.
Magpie came with me, in disgrace and feeling very sorry for herself. During the night she stole and ate a tub of margarine, and spent the first half of the day throwing up. Unfortunately she insisted on doing this indoors, at my feet, despite being out in the porch and garden for most of the morning. She specifically chose to come in and be sick on the living room floor. I'm afraid I was rather lacking in sympathy.
And now, Jana Johnson has made a great youtube video showcasing the work of some of the WHOA equine artists. This one features Unicorns, and includes one of my paintings. Do check it out!
