Sunday 6.45am: pulled back the curtains, blue skies, sun, looked like a good car boot sale day. Get ready, have breakfast, get out the door and it starts raining. But the positive side is this rainbow was arching over the neighbourhood. It is the most complete rainbow I've seen (full arch not just a fragment of it) and it was great. It has been quite a while (perhaps even a year or so) since I last saw a rainbow, it made me all inspired so watch this space might have to do a bit of artwork based on this photo....

The rainy days are keeping me indoors during the evenings so I thought I would continue the tour of the Palace of Kitsch:
No palace of kitsch can be without a green lady.
This is a taster of the pet owners homage to their pets art collection. As you can see this is a fine example of how wrong people can get it. Human eyes? Back leg that seems to turn into a tail? Green stripes resembling pus? Oui, merci!
Snow globes you say? Damn straight I say! The Estonia snow globe was a wedding present, little did the givers of this gift know how right they were getting it when they bought us this, I doff my hat to them.
That's all for now, we have a visit from the landlord on Saturday I should probably do some tidying and dusting. Ta ra for now.

There are many reasons MozzyMr and I were lucky to find one another, one of these reasons is a mutual love of kitsch. A taste in Kitsch we have been told is nudging the line of taste, kitsch that few of our friends understand (one day I'll take a photo of our collection of dog pictures that owners have painted, they're awful and great), but a kitsch that I love because even if we turn up at a car boot sale late it's safe to say no one else would have purchased the items we like.
My most favourite money box, whenever we move house this is seriously over wrapped and over protected. I know I'm the only one to love this, but love it I do and it never fails to make me smile.
Ahhh golden Bambi. Not only an object d'art, but a pen holder and thermometer combined hazaar!
So I have the money box and MozzyMr has his resin collection. I didn't like these for quite a while but having lived with them for a while I see they have a taxidermy quality that I quite like.
Fake bumble bee paperweight. I found this at a car boot sale, I was deciding whether to get it for MozzyMr as a Christmas present, as I was stood there with it in my hand, Mozzy came along took it out of my hand and bought it. If only I had been quicker off the mark he could have opened it on Christmas day and I would be basking in the light of gratitude having purchased him his all time favourite bee related item (he likes bees a lot).
