Feeling jaded?



Not me! Because I have all these jade green goodies! I bought the angular milk jug and sugar pot for £1.05 yesterday, the teacup weeks ago and the glass object when I was charity shopping with Lucie. I might add that we discussed whether or not it looked like it was off somebody's grave, but I decided it liked it anyway... I think it's to hold flowers upright. Isn't the colour dreamy?

The book is by Salvatore Rubbino who teaches on my course and the MA in Children's Book Illustration, and it's absolutely lovely.

Cool, when did you buy Salv's book? That's been on my list for a while (but then again so are a few hundred other books too).
The important question, though, is would you have liked it if the cover was yellow?

I think it would still have appealed in any colour. I'm actually borrowing it from Pam. I suspect my dissertation might involve interviewing Salv if he'll let me...
Lu, I'm ready for our next outing, just say the word!
