My six year old son is often walking round our house with a camera filling it up with shots along the lines of a computer screen, his knee, a close up of his mother's ear, a guines pig's bottom, the remote control etc.
This inspired me to do the same. I wandered round my house taking photos of corners and things I like to look at. And this was some of the result....
Bathroom spirals and stars that are all over the walls and ceiling...
The clock centre. A shop bought one and one our daughter made from an old record, a cereal packet, a CD and milk bottle tops as part of an art project at school. I love how the numbers are wonky. Chap says one shows the time in Norwich and the other shows the time in the twenty second dimension - because they are always a little out of sync. Time runs a bit more randomly in the 22nd dimension because of the irregular spacing of the numbers.
A thirtieth birthday card my lovely friend Dayna made for me. It's made out of tissue paper, watercolour and cloth and it illustrates me sucking my thumb - which I have mostly given up - now I am a bit more grown up. Actually the same friend cut my hair short which made hair twiddling - and therefore thumb sucking - pointless.
Earring storage. I always think it's decorative.
The dragon that flies in our front room.
An experiment inspired by something I caught on TV
Daffodills from lovely Emily at work frame a photo of the family and our old band...ahh.
Chap's crazy tiling...
How a stairwell should be decorated
The two Ronnie's changing shelf
My favourtie of all the papier mache flowers....
Another joint craft project. Andy did the cork base and I did the batik shade. One of our pottier collaborations!
The Molly Potter section of the library. It makes me proud (if I am allowed to be). Not bad for a dyslexic. I notice my books are in the fairy tale section.
I just like that bit of the wall....
An example of one of our 'systems'
One of Chap's art projects...kids' shoes in a frame? Nutter.
That concludes the tour of slightly potty corners in my house. Thank you and goodnight.
