After clearing out the coal shed to put up some shelves we found some of my old paintings from the 70's.  Decided to hang a couple in the house as we were in the process of re-hanging some old work and new stuff recently aquired like the Magda Archer print and the Beth Barlow landscape.  It made a nice change and made us realise what a lot of nice art by talented friends we have.

We have all kinds of weird things stashed away in our bedroom but I wouldn't read too much into them Jennifer.  They have to be stored somewhere and the bedroom is one of the biggest rooms in the house.  The walls are surprisingly uncluttered compared to the rest of the house!

Thanks Richard.  Yes, it's nice to have a change of view occasionally and as we are stuck indoors most of the time it is even more essential !   The hand mirror collection is Hazel's.  Ive never had much interest in them but can see their potential now that she has found a few ( mostly from charity shops and car boot sales ).  Groups of similar objects always look good together unless they are  politicians of course!  Some more snaps of our collections  attached for your viewing pleasure -

03.08.20 Dare Mister Michael Leigh, ...not many of us are willing to offer a home-tour ('mini' as it maybe). Thank you.It's also,terrific that you have managed to hang on to the "old stuff", as eventually it has a way of  becoming "new " again.  & as I  would have expected from Michael Leigh, unique( I've never seen such a quality collection of hand mirrors before) & "interesting".

Dogs on wheels don't usually ruin carpets unless the wheels have been through the farmyard !

is that oh fluffy as in 'oh what a nice doggy', or oh fluffy as in ''that's another carpet ruined'?

"OH FLUFFY" is always relevant.
