I rescued this brilliantly quirky handmade train a while ago.

Made for a small child, they can stand in the back, and be pulled along by the handle at the front.


I love it, and was clearly made by someone with a great sense of humour.

I've named it Dave the Tank Engine, as it could easily be a very distant relative of Thomas!


Sadly, I can't take him to vintage markets as he's too big to fit in my small van, so he's now on sale on Facebook Marketplace!

It could easily be restored, and painted into any colour you fancy. 


Let me know, and have a go!

I do like to find a forlorn bit of furniture and give it a new life...

Sometimes that can involve an upcycle job, painting it, decorating it etc, but usually just a nice dignified spruce up will suffice!

This unusual bit of Mid-Century was one of those.

Its a very low table on wheels, with a drawer underneath.

It would be great as a simple coffee table, that could be pushed around to wherever you want it to be.

But I'm thinking it would be great to have a vintage record player on it, and in the compartment underneath, you could store the records!


Either way it would look great!

And lucky you, its on sale now!!

As January is always a quiet month for me, I've been working on a few collages.


One of them is this...

The title, 'What Killed Albert?' comes from the newspaper cutting used on the collage.

I found it in a vintage book completely by chance, and I loved the randomness of it.

Why was it cut out by that person who then used it as a bookmark?!

As with all my artworks, I've just used any image I fancied, which this time it happened to be Jean Harlow, Yul Brynner and Charles Laughton!


Keep in touch, as I'll try and do more regular posts on here this year.
