Today, I've bought......

A set of proper wooden printing blocks, from eBay.  They can be quite expensive but these are smallish - about an inch high - so were very reasonable, and, a set of cast iron keys to decorate my shed.

The latter, although they are cast iron and look ancient and wonderful, are in fact from China, via the National Trust, and were £6.  Definitely drawing material there!


  1. Suffering a severe case of shopping envy….

  2. Are you taking up part time jailing ( being a jailer - lol!) - those keys look as though you should be running so e sort of corrective institute!!
