And some welcome sunshine!
Spring is officially here!
It's a good feeling.
Everybody prance now!

Handbag-60's, from the lovely Sue

I've had some luck at my favourite opshops; the little West German vase made me squeal a bit, I got it, these shoes, and the 50's glasses case the week before last....
.....the little vase makes 12 or 13 for our West German pottery collection......I blame G......
Last week I scored a couple of cases, these sweet 70's jars, a modern but retro looking toiletries bag......
....and this enamel pot, coat hangers and the not my usual style but rather compelling tin tray!
G is getting better at using his crutches, and we've been able to get out a little bit.
Last Saturday we went out for a bit of nosh and a couple of drinks.
I don't really like being drunk in charge of a cripple, though! Makes me nervous!
It's bad enough that the cripple gets drunk!
We went to The Bog, a splendid Irish bar with awesome food.
I don't like Irish music though. Sorry.
(but I do love the Irish jiggy bit on a Kate Bush song, "Jig of Life" on the B side of Hounds of Love. Can't explain. I think it's the clappy sounding bodhran or stick bits that make it. Or is it "Waking the Witch"?! Arse. Anyway, it's Kate, she rarely goes wrong!)
Coat-70's, a theatre sale
Handbag-60's, thrifted in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico
