It’s not often I think my photography is good enough for public consumption, which is why I so often play around with it using textures and the like. In this instance, I surprised myself by liking it enough to let it stand. Who’d ‘ave thunk!

It was with this bunch of roses that I christened my new home. Bought on Friday from the local supermarket, they don’t have much of a fragrance but they sure as hell look good.

I’m dreaming BIG, Mr De Mille!

Take care and keep laughing!


These table card holders are a new product at my Zazzle store and, while categorised under Cooking and Dining, have so many uses. I have bought other versions in previous decades to hold photographs, important notes—in fact anything that needed to be displayed or act as a reminder. As the inimitable Joyce Grenfell might have said, as she did in her Institute Lecture Demonstration monologue, they make ‘useful and acceptable gifts’!

Incidentally,  Joyce Grenfell was related to the Astors (her mother, Nora Langhorne, was sister  to Nancy Astor)  while her architect father, Paul Phipps, was a second cousin to the American actress and monologist, Ruth Draper.  If my American visitors have not heard of Joyce Grenfell, think Draper but very British! And explore her work.  She was a consummate performer.

Glass Ceiling

This is not the Joyce Grenfell monologue mentioned above but the classic Nursery School, affectionately known as George? Don’t do that.

Take care and keep laughing!
