After....and before


Just thought you might like these two images - my sister and I were given these Noddy and Big Ears egg cups rather a long time ago - late 50's early 60's and they both ended up living with me. They live on a rather high shelf in my kitchen and when I was looking for something to photograph for a project called Top Shelf I though I would get them down. Well as you can see, they were in a very sad state, but a little TLC soon had them back in the pink!

Noddy's hat is a little faded, his neckerchief has frayed and his bell has lost it's tinkle, but they are still quite charming.  I have lots of other old bits and pieces on that shelf - old tins and packets collected over the years, perhaps I should get them down too!

Hi Jill, they are adorable. It is fun to find old treasures we tuck away. It is almost like getting something new again. Thanks for sharing them,

Yes! Yes! Yes! Get the other bits and pieces down, those two are gorgeous. I found out just how unforgiving the camera is when I photographed a piece of sewing under the presser foot of my machine last week: the muck and fluff that has collected on it just has to be seen! The macro button doesn't lie!!!! Ha! Ha!

What an interesting top shelf you must have... show, not tell eh? Love these two little chaps though, to be going on with!

Oh no - pulled a muscle in my back pulling up my socks - no top shelf for a while!!
