House and home...

After her mother died, a friend had the task of emptying her house of a lifetime's accumulation of bits and bobs, collections of linen and ceramics, clothes and ornaments. I went with her one day, as she wondered if I'd like any of her mother's art materials. Just as I'd hoped, the house was fascinating and crammed with unusual and interesting things.

A child's 'correction chair'...
A very sweet little painting by her mother.
Another lovely little painting, and a great wall colour.

The garden, with its ramshackle sheds and dilapidated greenhouse, clay pots piled high, and toppling statuary, was equally fascinating.
