Michelangelo's tea break
I find all these things around the house and garden belonging to the previous owners very interesting. Why did they choose them, why didn't they take them etc.? This little birdhouse ornament by the back doors is sweet.
This one I find a bit creepy for some reason. After I took the photo I looked underneath and it was full of ants eggs - eeeuuuww!
This one is in the front in a little patio hidden by the garage. That glass is very Miami Vice! Does anyone remember there was a shot of glass tiles like this in every episode?
More things seem to be appearing as we prune the bushes!
Yet more! Does anyone know what that marble ornament might be for? It has little ledges as if perhaps it should have candles.
And now I had better get back to work - I'm painting the ceiling of my study. It had white walls but I think the lady of the house used to sit and smoke in there so it's a dirty shade of grey now. The walls are textured so it's taking a lot longer than I thought it would. Phew! I didn't think I could admire Michelangelo any more than I already do!
