Afternoon in Horncastle
Dad wanted to take Mum for a drive today so decided to drive to see me. I talked them into a little visit to Horncastle. Mum used to love walking around our favourite junk shop in Horncastle, and today was no exception. I was looking for some old beat up tea pots and the like to carry on with my still life ideas, I found an old pewter kettle, the tap is missing and it is really dented and I love it. I also got an old silver plated teapot with some nice detail on the lid and handles as well as a pattern in the metal which is beautiful and well worn. Then three pottery items.
I might take a joint shot of them all and use it as a blip later in the week when I am struggling lol.
After Mum left I decided to take a little walk around some of the other shops and spent some time in this little second hand bookshop. I had a thoroughly wonderful afternoon and had forgotten how much I used to love wandering around Horncastle when I lived near there. None of my kids share my fascination of old junk, but that's fine. It means I get to spend some quality time with my Mum or to meander on my own - a real guilty pleasure
I did buy three books for a quid from the shop . A real bargain, all of them photography books. If I get on decent idea from them they will have more than paid for themselves.
