Why why why?

 I have been rummaging around the house, for new things to look at. I have loads of stuff horded away in draws and boxes because I just don't have the room to have everything out....anyway I found a set of picture domino cards I forgot I had, I love the colours and images on them......

....then I found an old sketch book .............

...........It appears I cut this bird out from something, and man I wish I hadn't. There are a couple of other pages with similar badly cut out images. I can't really remember where they came from but I think they may have been some picture dominos. Why would I do such a thing? How could I think it was a good idea to use these lovely illustrations in the pages of a crappy sketchbook? But wait it gets worse,  in the very same sketchbook................. 

  .............How cool is this little Japanese lady? I remember that this was from the box of an old game. I got it from Help the aged  when I worked there many years ago. Again..WHY? why destroy it for an experimental page in a sketchbook. I am usually really precious about things, so I can only guess I was trying to free up some creativity, rebel and stop being so precious about stuff.....glad that phase is over!

I got this diary at a charity shop 10 years ago!!! it was only 50p and was part of a set, it also had an address book with it. They were unopened in a cute little gift box....and there were 2 of them, identical. SO WHY DID I ONLY BUY ONE???????? everyime I come across it I get relly pissed off at myself. I even used it as my notebook and just wrote in it, it's full of contact numbers for  flats to rent, jobs I applied for, and shopping lists. It is really grubby and dog eared now, and I lost the address book years ago. If I was going to use them, why didn't I buy both sets and keep one new and pretty. I am an idiot.

Pretty Bird

I had this tile which was from a cheeseboard I got at carboot years ago. The cheeseboard was missing it's knife, and as I love the tile so much, I carefully prized it off the wooden slab it was on, intending to display it  somewhere...however I have lost it in my move and it has been troubling me for a while......

....Then I found another one on my travels! Hooray! This one is complete with knife, so I can use it to serve tasty cheeses on......
But now I want to find the other one, and prize the new one off it's board so I can display the fine pair of birds together!

Paris Rose

I bought this because I love the bottle, It looks like a giant perfume bottle and is so elegant and pretty. I have no idea what it tastes like, but strawberry and cream vodka liquor sounds pretty delicious.

A peek into my sketchbook

I did a  drawing in my sketchbook for the first time in ages. I like the sadder and darker direction  my drawing seems to be going in.
