Alphabet out of the bag: the next chapter

What's in the bag? Which bag?



Alphabet in the bag ...

Alphabet out of the bag!

I found these metal and wooden blocks at an antique shop in New Norfolk and my heart leaped for joy! Now they are out of the bag I am really looking forward to what I am going to do with them ... watch this space!
Sometime in the next six months I plan to go back to the shop to buy up a few more ... if the wallet holds out.

Kim,

They have so many more of these wooden blocks with metal and wood type. Just love them!

I did purchase a whole alphabet which ended up costing me a lot of money. The blocks ranged from $5 to $10. Money I didn't have mind you ... so in the pursuit of artistic endeavour I whacked it on the VISA! Eeeek!

I asked the proprietor if she could manage a discount but she declined saying they are so popular that they walk out the door. Hmmmmm, I have reserved my judgement on that one and better get on with some saleable artwork to pay for them.

What a gem of a find...no flies on you sweetpea. I am pea green but me thinks the proprietor knew how delighted you were with your find. Poker face next time and not so much jumping up and down. cheers Christine

I love the mixed alphabet look of wooden type - mine always make me smile and I'm sure you'll have fun with yours! F
