Souvenir Time

I went to Venice recently. It was boss.

Anyway, I’m trying not to spend money on souvenirs that end up cluttering up my lil appartment. If I want a souvenir, it has to be materials so I can make something. Let’s see if I can keep this resolution up!!

So whilst I was in Venice, I picked up a cheap Venetian mask of Scaramuccia (I think) – I spent all holiday calling the mask il Dottore but I think that’s a different one. I’m sure someone will be able to enlighten me! I also bought an Italian newspaper – the only one I’d heard of at the newsagents was Corriere della Sera so I bought that one rather than try out my ropey Italian on the vendor.

When I got home, I did a little bit of decoupage to get over the disappointment of the holiday being over and having to go back to work. I stuck a few strips of red and green tissue paper in too, as they are the colours of il tricolore. Old scarface is now up on my craft room wall! Happy days.

Hello! Well, I’m sure someone once said that we are what we repeatedly do, so… I guess I like making stuff, cooking, swimming, sleuthing and watching old black and white movies. I live near a lake. I like feeding the ducks. I work for a trade union and generally like anything that involves rooting for the underdog. Currently I am living in Doncaster and learning one new craft at a time.
