Hello again all. Just a quick catch up and a bit of wildlife for you to enjoy I hope, a rare Elm Martin! I say that as being carved from Elm, and it’s just easier to say that rather than, “An Elm Pine Martin!” Here, shown having had a little tidy up and a quick wax, measuring approximately 15″ long, 10″ high, and 6″ deep, so that’s about life size. Hope you enjoy the photo’s, and yes, this is for sale, offers discussed, ticket price £285. Thank you, Andy.
Well, Bibury Antiques Fair is having a break until the spring…….. BUT…….. Should people have time over the weekend of 23rd and 24th November, there’s an antiques fair on at The Holt Hotel, Steeple Aston, Oxfordshire. I’m bowled over, and going to be there again! Oh yes, and I’ll have this Sycamore Dairy Bowl with me, and I think it’s got a good colour and patina, but I’ll have to let you decide if you agree! This bowl is about 12″ in diameter, and 3 1/2″ high. Here it is….. The link for the Holt event is http://www.antiques-at-the-holt.co.uk/ Maybe see you there, and if I remember rightly, the steak sandwiches are very nice there too!
What a difference a year makes indeed. This photo was taken around a year ago, just as some areas of the locality were cold and windy with a little snow, just a few hundred yards further on the snow had drifted quite deep, causing a few areas of chaos! As a result we cancelled our 2018 March event, and were hesitant about it this year too!
We return to Bibury with renewed vigour, on April 7th 2019. See you there?
Here is Arlington Row in the snow, a frozen carp at the bottom of a garden, and a gnome off to ski school! Regards, Andy.
