Vintage Advert - Hear Muffs, Headphones you wouldn't kick out of bed



Oh my word....I need a pair of these to go walking up and around the English countryside in to stop the wind from howling around my ears. I'm thinking they should relaunch these "Hear Muffs" and give the headphones "Beats" by Dr Dre a run for his money.

Not Very Domesticated - Illustration



So I bought a lamp shade for the design and thought it would hang down far enough to cover the light bulb. It never entered my head there would be different sizes. So now I know. I once made my own lampshade out of chicken wire and aluminium foil, it looked pretty good.

If only my mum had of owned some Scotch Tape then my hair (fringe) would've been straight when she cut it and not all over the place. It was always the time when the school photos were going to be taken too so my mum has evidence of the wonky fringe look.

If I Was Tiny - Illustration





You cant beat a hot water bottle on a cold night to snuggle up to and fall asleep with, but then I thought wouldn't it be nice if I was a tiny person that could fit inside a matchbox filled with cotton wool on top of a hot water bottle. My kind of heaven.

Photography - Haworth, Yorkshire. Bronte Land




Another contemporary photograph I took of the land on the moors up on the Haworth countryside in Yorkshire. After walking for 8 miles around the moors in the wind and the rain all I fancied doing was having a bag of chips with salt and vinegar on. Yum, yum tickle my bum.

Vintage Advert - Retro Telephones



Love retro telephones, apart from when you ring someone and its an answering service which asks you to "press 1 for sales, 2 for support..." and you can't as the phone has a dial so you have to hang up and use a touch button phone.

Dog Walking - Cartoon


Helped a friend out by taking one of her dogs for a walk or rather the dog takes me for a walk. It is a small, meaty little dog that can't seem to wait to find out what's around the corner so is constantly pulling me, thankfully she has one of them retractable leads so it can go wander around on its own.

Square Eyes - Cartoon




When I lived at home with my parents, If my mum thought I was watching too much TV she would say "you'll end up with square eyes". I wonder what she would say these days if she knew how long I stared working at a computer screen, then after work I will look at the TV, then my tablet, then I end up on my phone. I should constantly have square eyes. by Sam Freek of didgi widgi ~ canvas art , photography art prints

My Sisters Sunday Dinner - Cartoon



My sister is an amazing cook there is no doubt about that, especially her Sunday dinners and her portions are huge. As a family we were brought up on large portions, I think it was to fill us up so much we wouldn't be able to move after tea therefore no trouble. So be warned, if you ever go to my sisters house for tea, remember to wear elasticated pants so your stomach can expand with all the food you will eat.

So I park up at home and it suddenly starts rain REALLY hard, I dash out of the car thinking I wouldn't get that wet by the time I got in through the front door but I was wrong.

Vauxhall Viva 1972, Classic Car - Illustration


I feel lucky to be the owner of a 1972 Vauxhall Viva classic car, I love the look of it with all the chrome and I always wanted a baby blue one having had two previous Vivas in gold. Whenever I go out for a drive and park up somebody always makes a comment about the car. Not long back an old lady approached me after I had just got out of my car and said "I had my first sexual encounter in a car like that" and walked off laughing...after I had picked my jaw up off the floor I laughed and went on my merry way into town to do a bit of shopping. Now when I look in my rear view mirror I remember what the old lady said and I shake my head as if to get rid of that crazy thought. Thanks for the memories old lady! :-)

Vintage Advert - The Best Things in Life Come in Cellophane



These old vintage adverts can shock you sometimes at how they try and get the message across and this is one of them. When I first spotted this retro advert it reminded me of all the health/danger warnings of what could happen to children if they were left to play with plastic shopping/carrier bags (they would suffocate).
