It’s always when I’m not looking, that I find ’em. There is always unmitigated delight when the discovery dawns. Finding a face, a patient little character in an inanimate object, is on my Top Ten List of Fab Things to Happen in a Day.
This amicable (elephanty?) soul, unearthed at Camberwell Market a year ago, has always been thoroughly appreciated for his supreme pencil sharpening talent. Yet, until now, he has been socially ignored. Rest assured, since his discovery yesterday afternoon, he has been fully welcomed and inducted into the Myrtleandeunice household. Some of us ate cake to celebrate.
Have you spotted any critters lurking in your house? Do you also chat to your cheese grater or commiserate with your fence paling? Ages ago I set up a Finding Faces Flickr group, forgetting that I’m a tad lazy when it comes to being a good Flickr-er. But inanimate objects are a social bunch. There’s animated talk of a party. Consider this an open invite.
(AND HAVE YOURSELF A MIGHTY FINE WEEKEND. WITH LOTS OF PARTIES. OR KNITTING. OR KNITTING AT PARTIES. WHATEVER TAKES YOUR FANCY).
