About jingsandthings

I am me. What do I like? Colour Shapes Textures Paintings, photographs, sculptures, woven tapestries, wonderful materials. The love of materials probably comes from my father who was a textile buyer, and I grew up hearing the names of mills and manufacturers which sounded magical and enticing. Glass in all its soft and vibrant colours and flowing shapes, even sixties glass which makes its own proud statement. A book I can immerse myself in. Meals with family or friends with lots of chat and laughter (and probably a bottle or two of wine). The occasional trip abroad to experience the sights, sounds, food, conversation, quality of light and warmth of other countries. To revel in differences and be amazed by similarities. I like to create and to experience, to try and to achieve. And then there are words – read, heard, written at my keyboard, or scrawled on sticky notes, or along the edges of dog-eared supermarket receipts excavated from the unexplored nooks of my handbag. What do I dislike? Cold Snow Bad design Fast food Condescension

    Merry Christmas, Dorothy. We have plenty of snow; I’d be pleased to share some with you. Or trade. We’re expecting freezing rain on the 26th.

  4. Merry Christmas, Chris. Thanks, but you can keep the snow. We’re never really prepared for snow here, so when it comes everything grinds to a halt. And we tend to get very wet snow, not the dry fluffy kind people enjoy. When it comes, I hibernate. Have a pile of books waiting to be read, so I’ll be enjoying the festive season whatever the weather. Hope you have an enjoyable time.
