Jump the Gun Harrington jacket

Back in February I wrote a post about the Farah Vintage Howe Jacket. This post generated quite a bit of interest, getting so many views in fact that searching for said jacket brought this blog in higher on search engines than anywhere that sold it. Time for a confession. As much as I coveted that … Continued

Some stuff that happened – zombie extra

It wasn’t until after I had posted the previous ‘Some stuff that happened‘ that I found these. I have already posted about the Totem Homecoming exhibition at the Custard Factory. But left out what a mixed bag of of bits that day actually was. After leaving the exhibition we saw some people parading through town … Continued

Some stuff that happened – part five

Now we’ve been through a whole year of these posts. Not to be messed with, the universe is still making things happen. The year is going by and the seasons are changing. Again. While looking through these I noticed that due to sorting out the house, and because that pretty much took up most of … Continued

Organ of Corti

On Sunday, after a night of camping and a few beers (one of us had too many I’m not saying who) we took a walk along the river to blow out the cobwebs. We were lucky enough to come across the ‘Organ of Corti‘ and stopped to have a look/listen. An installation by Liminal the … Continued

Character Totem homecoming

Yesterday, following Iain’s recommendation we headed over to the Custard Factory to have a nose at the latest exhibition in the Zellig Gallery. The pictures here speak better than words, but the current exhibition is organised by Inky Goodness, supporters of and a great vehicle for the showcasing of new and emerging illustrators and artists. … Continued

Some stuff that happened – part four

Well, here we are again. I’m enjoying these posts more then any other right now, hence the photo count is increasing. I’ll try and edit a bit better next time (I won’t). Anyway, here’s some bits and pieces that happened (as the title would suggest). As usual in no particular order. The Firefly had a … Continued

Building a basic wardrobe

Sorry, this isn’t going to be a post about the finer details of how to put together some flatpack furniture (I’ve learnt my lesson there), but more about an article that I found interesting. I don’t class myself as a hoarder per se. In ‘Do Androids Dream…’ Phillip K Dick coined the term ‘kibble’ – … Continued

Some stuff that happened – part three

This one falls over quite a busy period, we had the whole Christmas and New Year and something called Valentine’s… good times with friends and family were all around. Also, lots of walks were had, lots of tea was drunk and lots of cake was eaten – plus these other things happened. We had possibly … Continued

Some stuff that happened – part two

I know, I know. My seasonal round up is a bit late, in fact so late that the next one will only be in a matter of weeks. Anyway, it’s the little things that make life extra special and here are some things from autumn (in no particular order). As I mentioned in a previous … Continued

Some stuff that happened

I haven’t been posting as much recently, in short it’s because I’ve been busy. Strange really, when I have a lot to post I haven’t the time to post it. But now that the nights are drawing in and the weather isn’t so good I may have some more time on my hands… may. Anyway … Continued
