The Old Soldier

Seen at an antiques fair last week, the stallholder very kindly allowed me to take his photograph.

Apparently he is Lord Kitchener, the British general.
Most famous today for that recruitment poster of the First World War.
 "Your Country Needs You".

I needed to take him home but couldn't afford the £500.00 price tag!!!
So he will go to a serious collector, not just someone who fell in love with him, ah well.

Room with a View

This is the view from my attic room.
It has been raining, windy and cold all day, and then the sun came out and threw the remaining foliage into glowing relief against the dark cloudy sky.


A beautiful view.

Lucky for Some?

Looking through the items in my etsy shop, and preparing some new listings, I became aware of rather a lot of horseshoes in one guise or another, and some other equine related things. Am I becoming obsessed? Or is it just coincidence? See what you think.

 Featuring in BeauPapier now, or coming soon.
