We have enough tea towels in our house to open a tea towel shop.............. well, o.k. that's a slight exaggeration. But we do have a lot of tea towels, which I've collected over the years. So a few hanging up as decoration in my studio aren't going to be missed from the kitchen................. Yes, I like tea towels. I have favourite tea towels. Tea towels that when I come to use them, (there's a rotation system going on), I think, "ooh, it's you again............... how nice". Yes, those are the sort of thoughts that pass through my head. Tea towel thoughts, you could say.
There isn't a work top, table or wall space in my studio that isn't groaning under the weight of objects. Sometimes, to use one surface, I have to do a complicated manoeuvreing of objects, and as you can see, even the sink is utilised as storage space, that is, until I need to use it...................
But onto the subject of hearts, which have taken over from the tea towels in honour of Valentine's day. It was always a day of disappointment when I was a teenager. I never got Valentines cards because I was terribly shy of boys. My first boyfriend came on the scene when I was eighteen. But now I have a husband......... well, it's now a reasonably safe bet I'm going to get something on Valentine's day............... isn't it Hugo?! (He reads my blog).................. Have a lovely weekend, and happy Valentine's for Saturday.................
