It’s Friday afternoon already. It seems to have come around very quickly this week. To encourage you to relax and anticipate the weekend I have a little eye candy prepared. But first, after weeks of no winner for the monogram challenge, I am delighted to announce
We have a winner!
In case you don’t remember, here is a photo of Monday’s challenge. A lovely and unusual oval shaped vesta with flowing script engraving. For those who don’t know what a vesta is, it was a container for storing matches. Vestas kept them safe and dry, and in the days before safety-strike heads were fireproof too. The strikeplate for this vesta is integrated into the bottom. Rather a neat piece of work.
Frequent contestants Ell and Flibbertygibbet were both correct with the submission of CHB. In accordance with the official Notes & Observations Monogram Challenge rules, I have put both their names on bits of paper and drawn them from a hat.
Congratulations Flibbertygibbet – contact me – and I’ll get your prize to you.
On with today’s business
Here is today’s Eye Candy – Eye Candy 6
I’ve set it to a little jazz by the incomparable Red Garland, so if you are in the office or the baby is asleep turn down the volume or use earphones! I won’t be held responsible if you get caught by your boss or (worse) you wake up the baby!
Enjoy, and as always, leave me some comments. I love to hear from you.
