notes from a small island


I have quite a lot of ornaments dotted around the house. These are not the prettiest, or the most valuable, but both have a memory attached!


This wee building came from a shop, long since closed, in Ramsey and I bought it for our 'new' house when we first moved into it - 29 years ago. Somehow, over the years, it had ended up hidden away and I had forgotten it until we were packing to move to this new house - where it is now on show again and will get a night light lit in it now the nights are longer and the days darker.

And this wee dwarf was a gift from my husband the first time we visited Whitby, before we were married, so 33 or more years ago. He reminded both of us of Gimli - and still does!
