Marketeer

20151122_195835 (2)Opposite to a normal Sunday, we had a stall. We sold things rather than bought them. Though, I might have wandered, and I might have also bought things, but generally, we sold things.

I bought another picture, sans Hitler, This one was an oil painting, circa 1900, with a European-ish lake and a boat. Unsigned. It’s fairly generic, warped and cracked and I intend to reuse the beautifully simple frame and hide the original picture behind the new one.

I liked Barbie as a child, but never took to dolls generally – I gravitated more towards things that were squishy and huggable. In recent years, I’ve collected a few dolls, mostly in pieces, usually broken, and/or unloved – but their face. I can’t walk past their face. Unlike Barbie, they’re often hand painted and unique.

This one is a little like Téa Leoni, and now that I’ve viewed her this way, she will be nothing else.

What draws you to objects?

When I say ‘we’ I mean these awesome folk.

    • 😀 This is great! I love miniature things too, they slot in a little too easily around things I already have! Practical stuff is always a winner and for me, if it is authentic and handmade it doesn’t necessarily have to be rare – I just have to like it!
      I have such a strange array of oddments. Someone I’ve come to know through my marketing said recently they’d love to see my house because I buy such a mixture of stuff. I think they’d be underwhelmed! 🙂
