Makes a change from plastic ducks

I've been asking everyone and their granny for plastic bottles which they have been generously donating but when I went into my workroom today I was overwhelmed by the icky, sticky smell of residue from dozens of assorted pop bottles. So into the bath they went. I have bathed 70 odd of the little beggars today, removing their lids to swill out their unsavory contents. Just as I was about to fling the lids away I realised what fabulous eye potential they had. Oh no, yet another thing to collect! Somebody stop me.........................

And talking about yet another thing...........

Went to a lovely talk about art dolls today by a very talented friend of mine Pam Waller. Pam subscribes to http://www.artdollquarterly.com/
which she orders from http://www.rainbowsilks.co.uk/. Think I might be adding this to my subscriptions list for some of the weirder dolls. They look as if they have great puppet potential. Also discovered a fab introduction to puppet making summer schools today at http://www.eca.ac.uk/eca.html
Not the easiest site in the world to navigate your way around but the summer school brochure is downloadable. Have been many times for other courses and it's a blast.

That's kind of you to think of me Nadine but I was never any good at proper tag and doubt I would be any good at virtual tag either!
