I knows my place
I was due to be paying another visit to this fabulous house in Oxfordshire this week, but now it will not be until after Christmas. I thought I would show it again - it is like something straight out of a Harry Potter film, but genuine.
One of those gables is very similar to the one in front of my bedroom in the house I grew up, but this is not mock-Tudor, it's the real thing. Ours was 1907, and this house pre-dates it by about 350 years. I have learned not to get too jealous over the years. I have to be wary of that in my job. I'll show you what I mean.
This is the last thing I made last week. It is a marble plug-hole for an 18th century, marble, champagne-cooler to be installed in one of many spacious out-buildings. Hey ho... (I angled the camera so as not to attract any bitchy comments about our lamp-shade from you-know-who).
