On the left you will see three fish, you should have seen my face when Mrs.S arrived home with them, purchased from a local flea market, ‘its art’ she told me.
I dutifully ‘strung them up’ (fishing gut) hung them from a suitable spot and I’ve got to like them. They are easy on the eye, always on the move and much easier to clean than a fish tank!
So, show me what you’ve got, a picture, ornament, sculpture, anything that adorns your home (or somebody else’s but extra points if it’s yours!)
There, that can’t be too difficult, you don’t even have to leave the house to submit an entry.
As usual I’ll accept multiple entries from cherished colleagues.
Closing date 27th October.

Ha Soutie – your fish are nothing to my whale! Watch this space.
Soutie, please allow an off-topic comment. I have had ASD training the last two days and have been absolutely amazed at the work of Phoebe Caldwell, on the subject of Intensive Interaction re autistic children. .If you have never heard of her, or of this work, I urge you to google her name on the internet as there are a few video clips of her work as well as helpful information re “Intensive Interaction.”
PS I cant wait to see the interior “art” shots. There is no excuse for anyone.
Now where did I put those three flying ducks…..? 😉
PapaG anytime, thank you, I’ve forwarded your suggestion to the relevant people.
Can’t wait to see the whale 🙂
Ah, well, Soutie.
Yes, in theory it should be a doddle, but since we are, and have been undergoing major re-decorating projects for seemingly ages, we have just banished all such “indoor art” to cardboard boxes in anticipation of the final leg of said project, that is the redecoration of the main living area. Having done the rest of the house, I haven’t yet dared to re-introduce pictures, or anything which resembles art. I cannot bear to knock picture hooks or anything into my now pristine walls and ceilings. I will get over this in time, I’m sure.
All is not lost, however, but it just makes it a little more difficult.
Ducks, but not flying, for Janus 🙂
Ara: Geese surely?
Funnily enough, LW, this has been a subject of discussion en famille, and friends. They are apparently Indian Runners, and they are ducks, not geese!
Have a look at this:
I think “Indian Runners” should be some kind of carpet, so much for my knowledge of World fauna.
You are not alone in this opinion, LW. 🙂
I had planned to enter this competition but the posted closing date has an unusual west country burr to it.
I have to admit that when I first saw Ara’s pic I thought Ducks???
The only Indian runners I’ve ever seen have been on a cricket field!
My go is titled “Mrs FEEG’s Dangly Things”
Nice one FEEG
I’m reminded of a girlfriend back in the ’70’s who had just discovered Macramé and taken it up as a hobby, what fun 🙂
Here you go
My friend Tom, long retired and severely handicapped, turns bowls from various woods. This is one of his, about twelve inches across, a piece of spalted maple, turned down to a thickness of about a quarter of an inch, it sits on my dining table.
That King of the Spurtles aka Help Ma Boab would probably appreciate this one, I wonder where HE is these days?
Yes, it is indeed the sort of thing that HMB would appreciate, not to mention our Furry Ferret friend.
‘Ere we go. Firstly, “In door” to The Cave
and secondly, African Lady wall light
I don’t normally enter these things, what with the price of spools and suchlike. But you asked for it.
Soutie, good evening.
It’s only a game! There’s always next year for both the EP Kings and the Sharks.
The camera is seriously failing to perform colourwise at the moment. If we really had walls this yellow, neither Mrs M nor I would be living here.
But, the bird is a favourite and the colour thereof is nearly close to right albeit not quite ruby enough.. Spotted, besotted with and bought in the German Colony of Jerusalem five years ago,
