Time for a little break from quilting. I'm in a frenzy and have been crouched over the machine like a mad woman finishing UFOs. Only 6 weeks until the "Public Hanging" at the Patch and I have heaps still to finish if I'm going to exhibit all I've planned to.
So this is today's favourite treasure.
A old ladder.
I love this ladder, especially the detailed hinge.
I'm pretty sure it's made of Oregon and I know it's English but that's all I know about it.
In a past life the bloke ran a junk shop, he sold a lot of bric a brac, a few antiques and plenty of collectable hand tools. Sometimes I would be allowed to go with him to auctions, just to act as quality controller of course!
A man with an auction number is a dangerous thing.
This ladder sold for way too much money but what could I do? I was in love.
