Vintage Buttons

Last summer I was working on a knitting project and I needed buttons.  Lots of buttons.  Preferably cute ones.  So I asked around my friends to see if they had any they could donate.  One friend gave me a box full of buttons; unfortunately most of those were way too big for what I was...

O Tempora! O Mores!

[picture to follow when both computer and myself are feeling somewhat better; please check back!]   I never quite 'got' the grandfather clock song, it didn't make sense to me that the clock just stopped when the old man died; clocks aren't sentient, even if they can be sensitive, so how could the clock 'know',...

I Made a Stamp

As you have likely heard, small things please small minds.  I love small things.  You may draw your own conclusions. Tonight, I had to package up a parcel to send to a friend in Europe.  I was very chuffed when I managed to get all five foot of draught excluder into something about A4 size... Continue Reading →

Where Will Our Words Be?

Writing is a pretty useful form of communication, we tend to write off (pardon the pun) entire civilisations as uncivilised or primitive simply because they didn’t develop a writing system and their oral histories have been lost or ignored.  Writing can speak to not just two parties, the writer and the recipient, but the written...
