I picked up this little beauty in a charity shop yesterday for 50p. A 1950's Pyrex sauce/gravy boat in perfect condition. Sold as virtually unbreakable, I think this proves the point!
Quite coincidentally, I had just finished page 3 of my Collage Coterie altered book. Look at the background of the right hand side page - an advertisement for Pyrex Colourware! Spooky, huh?!
Now please let me introduce you to Dick. This dear little chap was kindly sent to me by Pixie. He is fully clothed with a suede waistcoat (with plaid back), soft white shirt and collar, and comfy brown loose weave trousers. Due to the poor weather conditions he was in transit for rather a long time, and Pixie was worried his bippy would be frozen - but he assures me that it is fine, thank you very much and does not require further investigation. We named him Dick after Dick Whittington because we are approaching the pantomime season and he looks like the poor Dick, down on his luck, on his way to London where the streets are paved with gold (they're not, I've checked). Thank you so much, Pixie, for sending me this dear little bear. He has settled in already in the Land of Small Soft Toys (the stairs) and I can hear him now telling the other toys stories about rural Lincolnshire from whence he came.
Monday tomorrow - it looks like the schools will be open and the trains should be running. I should be able to get to work, goody goody gumdrops ;0)
I'd better go and make some tea in time for the X Factor semi-final result. Edge of the seat stuff!
