8 random things
to tell you 8 random things about ourselves.
Toby set about taking some photo's around our home, and touched them up in Photoshop, then I uploaded them here to our blog and wrote about each one.
I hope you all enjoy finding out a little more about us!
Now, we have to tag 8 other people. This is not compulsory, and if we have chosen you, and you dont fancy joining in, that's not a problem. But please everyone, do leave us comments, that's why we blog, we love to hear from you all!!
Here are the "rules"
1. Let others know who tagged you.
2. Players start with 8 random facts about themselves.
3. Those who are tagged should post these rules and their 8 random facts.
4. Players should tag 8 other people and notify them they have been tagged.
Model of our house
I think the model in itself is a wonderful object, it is about 3 feet tall.
These are 2 money box birds, a pigeon and a chicken, both made by Toby a couple of years ago. They are made from pint plastic milk bottles, covered with paper mache, and then painted and decorated. They have a slit cut in their backs where you insert the coins, and the screw on plastic bottle tops are on their bottoms, under their tail feathers, so you can retrieve the money when needed. They live on top of our piano, and we collect £1 coins in them, to save up for various things, previously a holiday, and now a shower room, (which Laurence is in the process of building at the moment).
Hornsea and other things
Toby has a small desk next to mine in the studio, where he makes his jewellery.
Laurence and I collect Mdina Glass, here is a photo of shelves in our living room, all the blue/green glass is Mdina, although we have other colours as well. I dont know what Toby has done with all these photo's, he seems to have made our house look quite clean - the wonders of photoshop! anyway, Mdina Glass was started up by a guy from the Isle of Wight, see here: http://www.circaglass.co.uk/phdi/p2.nsf/supppages/circa?opendocument&part=5
We buy ours from flea markets and antique fairs, and once, we visited the factory where it is made, in Malta, but there was just TOO much to choose from! have a look here: http://www.mdinaglass.net/
Well, thats the 8th and last random thing about us, I'm looking forward to visiting the blogs of the people that we tag, when Toby and I get back from Hastings at the end of next week.
Bye for now!
