This is a Hoover Harmony small vacuum cleaner (small but mighty). We've been in a relationship for about 4 years now and it does try it's best - steady, reliable, adequate suction, gets into tight corners, good for apartments or small space living... But there's no getting round it any longer: it's just not a Dyson. We've talked it over and it's decided if I can't love it for what it is, then it's time for it to move on.

This is a desktop. It's a big, relatively heavy piece of pine (?) wood (80cm D x 160cm W) I painted it white to go with trestle legs. Never found the right legs so bought two of white +brown cane drawers (see pic below) and rested it on top. Worked a treat, but don't recommend heavy leaning...

Do you like Pina Coladas and gettin' caught in the rain? Or are you just into cruising, wearing matching plaid suits, while dinking your needy, slightly creepy looking offspring in the front basket and crooning long forgotten love songs? Or maybe your name's just Ray? Either way. This 70s album cover provides laughter - rain or shine.

















This is an early piece of my sister's art. A lovely old plate with a lovely old night gown pasted on it. I like it...(I may have to keep it)...

A lovely little wooden seat for the garden. Also from Coburg Better Block. This one may come with me to the new pad but if you're interested in giving it a home, leave a comment. Is about 75cm W x 15cm D x 50cm H.
