It must have been his charm and wit that did it !! ;-)

This morning, my dear Mr Snippets went for a job interview!

And guess what? ;-)
He's just been told that he was the successful candidate!!
And that's not all...
Guess where it is ?
Totnes!
;-)
Whilst he was at the interview, I paced around the house for a bit and then decided to introduce myself to my craft room...I've neglected it just lately.


I had loads of scraps to use up so I made some pictures .


I mean he might want one for his office wall, eh? (not!)

Anyway...a huge 'Well Done' to my other half!

I will definitely be down to meet you for lunch, afternoon tea, etc etc...!

I thought of you...I bought you a picture!

I had a lovely surprise last week!
My mum handed me this pic, (above) which she found in the local Oxfam bookshop.
Her words were, 'I thought of you when I saw this!'
(She knows how much I love steam trains AND, of course, the 1950s!)
Painted in 1951 by Brian Fawcett.
In turn, I thought of someone when I found this:


'Where shall we nest?' by Eileen Soper.
Dear Mr S loves the garden birds so I'm going to get it framed for him asap!
These popular classroom posters were produced by Macmillan in the 1940s, when Enid Blyton worked with Eileen Soper on a set of classroom nature readers.
I already have this one - 'Gloves for the party' - in our very 'Foxglovey' bathroom!


Meanwhile , if you want to browse these lovely nature posters, you can look here:
