Beautiful Spirit of Bridport
desparately trying to get out into the outside world
it was a long day
So with that behind me I thought I would show you something that I have started to collect, strange things they are, but have now become quite obsessed in trying tyo find them, Friendship Hands...
there are lots of variations of them and they come in alsorts of disguises from vases to brooches and postcards. All the ones I have, have been found here in Bridport at the chairty shops and I havent paid more than a pound..
this was the first one
from the charity shop, on purchasing this, the assistant asked me what I intended to do with it, I replied I just liked it and would put it in my little display cupboard, assistant replied strange thing isn't it, I'am glad its gone, it rather scared me!
next was this little one, from the same chairty shop, same assistant, I wondered whether she would remember me, she did, oh she said they still scare me...
this one was from the market, its a vase a bit knocked, but it must have been the most lovely creamy white colour when it was first made
Last up is the latest addition, found last Sunday at the car boot at West Bay, not many there as a bit rainy, lots of rubbish in boxes, lots of horrid clothes that would have been better in the tip, but I heard a shout, eccentric daughter bellowing, theres a hand, a hand and there was a hand tucked right down at the bottom of the box under a disgusting nest of smelly old wool, I was brave and put my own hand in and pulled it out and it was this
taken in the car, my daughters hand holding the hand, were being engulfed with hands who will drag us away into the unknown, this one was 50p, I think the stallholder thought he had got two nutters here, but I am getting rather attached to these hands and will have to enlist hubby to build a special cabinet for the hands, so they can have their own space
so now on the lookout for more, did see a necklace today in a Weymouth jewellers, now I think its becoming an obsession, I'am looking at everything through hands!
Bye til next time
