Up for auction

Way back when Alun and I shared an office in Linden we began a collection of holiday tack souvenirs. They took pride of place on the office shelf and we encouraged people visiting far-flung outposts to bring us back the tackiest gift they could find.

Time has passed and neither Alun nor I work in the Linden office now but until this week the holiday collection remained.

New brooms sweep clean though and yesterday I was presented with 2 bags of goodies because they 'didn't want to just throw them out.' But here, take a look:

Now tell me how anyone could even contemplate throwing away such treasures.

So I'm going to put them on ebay as a 'rare and valued collection of holiday souvenirs the like of which has never been seen before.' I wouldn't be surprised if the curator of the British museum got in touch. Or the Duchess of Cornwall. Or Lawrence Llewellyn-Bowen. It could spark off a bidding war.

I'll keep you informed.

The whatsit with toes ! For toothpicks , perhaps ?

Unfortunately the grandchildren have now raided my stash and I fear the collection will be worth less, Rose.

And I find I am needing toothpicks more and more, sonata.
