Thanks so much for calling in, especially as it's Five on Friday. All the links to other blogs are listed on Amy's Love Made My Home blog, do have a look if you can.
It's interesting isn't it when you look at photos and sometimes see what is not in the photo but what was happening at the time while it was taken. You are whisked back to another time and place. The same thing happens with various objects about the house, perhaps things that have been given to you by someone dear or have been inherited. Maybe even, they remind you of a brilliant holiday or previous house. Here are five things that make me travel in space and time.
One- Banjo Kazooie on the N64
Seeing this game again takes me back to when we got our first interactive game machine, it was all so new and amazing seeing the excitement of our young children. Such happy days as we all laughed together and tried to puzzle out how to play, joining in with the tunes and catchphrases, such fun.
My jug collection started when I was little. Many were given as presents, others purchased as momentos. This jug reminds me of the summer fete near my Aunt's house. I noticed the jug in the tombola and thought I'd buy a ticket. Imagine my surprise when I actually won it!
This one conjures up the wild green and rocky landscape of Tintagel in Cornwall, steeped in myths and legends, which is said to be the birthplace of King Arthur of Camelot. That's actually a dragon on the side of the jug.
Four - Glove
This single glove reminds me of the hills of the Lake District about 38 years ago. When I lost my gloves, Mr CK bought me this pair as a surprise, we hadn't known each other very long then. The other glove also disappeared a long time ago but I've held on to this one.
Five - Picture
Finally I'm taken to Montmartre in Paris early in the morning, high up on the hill enjoying the beautiful view from the Basilica of the Sacré Coeur.
That's where I'll leave you today.
Have a great week.
