Anyhow... today I got mail from Beanie...
A Christmas card!!! It is smashing - love that green colour - it's like my winter jacket!
And it's the first one on the Christmas card holder... cool!
Now... off to the mudlarking finds...
There they are... they were washed in bleachy water cause... you know... the Thames isn't the cleanest river in the world.
Wow... I sure collected a lot of stuff!
Look at some of those blue colours - beautiful!
And miscellaneous pottery bits... beary pretty.
These are bits of disposal clay pipes from back in the day... basically the olden days version of cigarette butts!!
And here we have a few odds and ends. A nail - but not just any nail, a handmade nail!! It could be beary old. A bit of red brick... some beautiful blue glass... that bottom right green bit is actually iridescent in most light... and then a brown handle thingie.
Also some shells... Mama did pick up a horse tooth and bone fragments but thought Canadian Border Security might have a conniption fit if we brought back "animal parts" soooo... they got left behind. Sigh.
And then a bunch of flint bits - they are beary cool too.
I like this little piece a lot and I think...
I will let Mama keep it on her desk... so she can remember the fun we had! The rest of the bits are probably going to go out into the fairy garden or... not sure... might come up with something creative once the monsoons stop! Beanie made a cool mosaic... we'll see what we can come up with!
