getting ahead


The other day b was for busy and finally b was for bugger!

My car failed it's mot, b is for big-time, and it will need about £500
of work to make it legally roadworthy - and I reversed into the
neighbors car, uumm - b is also for lost no claims bonus!

It seems that getting ahead will not be that easy afterall.

Reconstituted Card head & Fabric Odd and Old
 
 
 
Still I found lots of beautiful vintage treasures in France and am now
busy washing, polishing and photographing in readiness to list online.
 
I particularly favor the early 1900's reconstituted paper pressed
cardboard doll's head of which I found 2 slightly different examples.
I marvel at how such a fragile and obscure object can escape the
ravages of time and avoid being tossed away as rubbish. I have already
sold one so if you, like me, wish to get ahead/get a head! I will be
listing the second one tomorrow...
