Sunday Selections #523
Long, long ago, in days of yore...Kim of Frog ponds Rock, (who no longer blogs), dreamed up a meme called Sunday Selections.
A place where those who were willing could put up photos they wanted to share, new, old, good, bad or indifferent, any photos you please.
Nothing rude or vulgar though.
The meme is now continued by Elephant's Child and I occasionally join in as do a few others. Drop in to Elephant's Child and have a look.
Outside in the garden there are a few new critters:
made from metal and bought at the local supermarket
here are the two on the front of the board
and the grasshopper on the back
inside, up on the kitchen shelf is a metal owl that I found in a thrift shop
and these two birds, one owl, one parrot (?) which I found in a Fremantle thrift shop when I visited my brother in 2013. Some of you have seen these before.
there is an old farm truck up there
and a kombi van too
here are closer shots of the elephants, this wooden, articulated, bejewelled beauty was found at a roadside dump, with tangled strings and a broken handle attached to them. I cut those off since I couldn't untangle them, then gave him a good wash.
this red one used to sit on my windowsill until Angel knocked him off one day, he has since been glued back together. The Jewelled ones here and in the next photo were found in thrift stores
I couldn't decide which one I wanted so I bought all three.
this grey one is heavier, I'm not sure what she is made of, she was a gift from K many years ago and the little black one with all the insets was another thrift shop find
as was this happy little purple girl with her pearl necklace.
here is Meg admiring the March page of the Girlettes "Dolls Help" Calendar, "it's my cousins practising their Equinox Dance"
"Mum said not to climb up here in case I fall, but I found my balance"
"I have a new hat 😀"
"What do you think?"
and here is Lola checking out the camera, blurry of course because she moved at just the wrong moment.
