I shall return to my travels on Monday, as weekends seem to be quiet in blog-land. Meanwhile, here are some pieces of green glass (which I collect) that I found at the car boot sale last weekend and which for just a pound or two apiece, came home with me.
Below is a beautiful Victorian mirror which we found a reasonable middle for. It had been lacking a mirror and gathering dust in one of the stables for several years whilst we mirror-hunted. Finally we found one that would do. It is actually oval (the angle of the photo makes it look far more circular than it is). Whilst the base is solid mahogany, the mirror is Walnut, but I am happy with it.
Below is the base my husband has been working on for weeks now. We bought the top half of this cupboard on stand many years ago at auction and just had it sat on the bottom half of an old wardrobe. Then my husband finally sorted out some bits of wood for this from his "collection" and so part of a desk, part of an old (burned) staircase, and parts from two old wardrobes (all solid oak) went into making this. Everything beautifully finished with hand-cut dovetail joints and perfectly fitted drawers. This flash photo doesn't do it justice as it makes the colour look totally different.
The photo below gives a better idea. My husband copied the design along the bottom from a piece of Carmarthen-made furniture we had already. The base cost him nothing but time.
