Tilt Top Table, Plum Pudding? In this heat!

Hello all!

Yes, here I have a mahogany tilt top table for sale, some would call it “Plum Pudding” well, sorry, just to warm to think of those!

So here it is……

Call for viewing, or pop in on Sunday August 5th at Bibury Village Hall where it will be on show.

Thanks, Andy.

All set and in “Tip Top” Condition!

Hello again!

Always busy the week before a fair, and I’m very proud of our Bibury Fair, and so pleased to say again we are full despite some people off on holiday, so I think it’s fair to say we are in “Tip Top” condition!

Some people call, this Plum Pudding Mahogany, but this year I think in August that’s just not right, maybe in November or December, certainly not in this heat! Way too warm for Brandy Butter!

Here is a clue…..

Calling All!

Hello, and as the harvest season and the warm weather seems to conitinue, some people in the country will remember seeing Corncrake becoming exposed as their shelter becomes our food when the fields are harvested. Years ago, it was a long slow gentle affair with scythes and gangs of men, and sometimes women working their way across a field, but with large harvesters, well not so quiet!

This here is a Corncrake Call, and some people will recognise it as it’s a small rattle, can be held and worked in one hand too! Sadly I can’t say it works for Corncrakes as I can’t remember last time I saw one, must have been over 15 years ago, but it does attract Magpie and Jackdaw, as they are close to me and so nosey!

The whole item measuring under 4″.

Have a good weekend, so much on around here, but if a small countryside village is your thing, then pop along to Bibury Antiques Fair this Sunday!

Regards, Andy.

It’s a summer-var stand!

Well, strictly not, but as ever I can’t resist a bad pun!

Recently I have tidied up a small stand for a client and to their delight, I called it a Samovar Stand, possibly the prettiest one I have ever had to improve, and so I hope you like it too.

Despite the heat and a chaotic summer, I am still restoring furniture, and keeping bees, and I’ll have a few photographs of my work on show at Bibury Village Hall this Sunday, August 5th, between 10 am and 4pm. Yes, refreshments are available, so pop in and say “hi” over a cup of coffee or tea!

Regards, Andy.

Morning Flower!

Hello all.

What a sunny morning again and my sunflowers now resting after being bashed by the wind and rain, they are surprisingly heavy when tall!

Here is an old oak panel which I have just buffed up to show some of the carving a bit better, I quite like the flowers!

It will be for sale this Sunday in Bibury Village Hall.

Pop along and say hi!

Thanks, Andy.

Summer Knees!

As the song doesn’t go!…….

Summer Knees, drifting away, blowing in the sunset of my mind!

Well, no sunset here to watch the eclipse, too cloudy, so that has been blown away!

Meanwhile, here are some knees which will be for sale with the rest of the table on Sunday August 5th! Pop in and say hi, we will be on show from 10am till 4pm at Bibury Village Hall.

May see you then! In the meantime, have a good day! 

Regards, Andy.
