Narcissi, More Little Jewels and A Finger Plate

28 Feb

I passed by a bank of Narcissi this afternoon and they made me smile.

Choir friends brought me some more  bits of jewellery for my glass work. I am going to have so much fun with all these little treasures!

Gifts from Anne and Jan – thank you both

Visiting friends this evening, I was very taken by the beautiful finger plate on their sitting room door. It is Newlyn copper and is very special. Apparently, when there were not enough fish to be caught or the weather was too bad to go out fishing, the fishermen were taught to work with copper, making small pieces for domestic use. This piece is really lovely with its fish and seaweed in the design.
