I thought I'd see if I could put together a still life with a few new bits tonight. The rule came from a flea market in Edinburgh, the book from a charity shop in Edinburgh and the oil can from Gloucester yesterday.

I badly need to sort out my prop collection again - it's spreading all over the floors once more Smile

Fab props Alison,some great muck on that lamp.
Lamp looks to be leaning a bit...or is it my eyesight,could just be the angle of view though.
Nice drop of light which has given you some lovely rich colour on the wooden stuff.

PS...I know what you mean about spreading stuff all over the place...tell me about it.I think I am going to have to build a shed,just for my prop collection !! Wink

Thanks folks Smile

Yes - now you mention it is the lamp is leaning Janet. I'm getting fair problems with distortion on my still life pics and have yet to figure out just what's going wrong. That said, I will inspect the lamp tomorrow to make sure it isn't actually leaning in real life!

My prop organising is an ongoing process - the trouble is no sooner do I tidy it all up than I buy more!!!!

Some great new additions put to good use with an excellent still life.
This arrangement looks so natural and it probably took ages to make it look like that!

There are no bits in this!
Drills Yes ..... bits No.

The mucky lamp is in a bit of a contrast compared to the fairly well looked after drills and pliers.

Thanks again everyone and apologies for the late return!

I'll see what I can do about a few drill bits - I'll have some worn out ones somewhere - just a case of rummaging about in a few boxes.

I forgot to check whether it was me or the lamp that is wonky - I'll do that another day - but there is no way I'm cleaning it up! I do have more that are better kept though.....
