R I P my old booby...
Being keen on recycling rather than throwing things away I asked various friends what would be a fitting retirement role for it, and a number of very helpful suggestions were put forward, including:
**Shooting target, alternative to clay pigeon
**Centrepiece for upcoming festive season (appropriately painted)
**Decoration floating in party punch bowl
By far the mosting intriguing, however, was from my good friend Pam W who suggested I mix it in with the pot pourri, rather in the fashion of St Agatha as seen in the illustration here ... a painting by Cariani currently hanging in the National Gallery of Scotland.
Excellent idea! Can anyone come up with anything better?
