Special Delivery

#Fowc #Delivery

A Knock on the door

there’s something special

waiting for you

at the front door

Not just any missive here

it’s wrapped up in fancy paper

metallic and shiny

with one great big stamp where its gathered on its bottom

For someone special

things to draw and paint and colour

and create things with

a “Thank you” card to the sender perhaps?

Repurpose

Salford, 28th January 2017

A post for the weekly photo challenge –

Repurpose

Things reused for not what they were supposed to be…

This can be illustrated nicely in my office cum bedroom

Its a Tin, an old biscuit tin….regular readers of my blog might recognise it – but a couple of Christmas’s ago, it held much more than the mere coinage than it does today…

its contained everything from creamy vanilla fudge to chocolate mints.

but today?  its a container for my spare change – the odd coppers that end up in my pockets of my trousers and coats.  when its reasonably full – i’ll take it down to the local coin machine and pocket the proceeds…which I might spend on a box of fudge or chocolate – and being empty, the tin will be re used again

I was given this tankard on my 21st birthday.  Now although I drink beer occasionally, I don’t drink it on a regular basis – and i’m more likely to drink out of a pint glass than a tankard.  So, instead of my tankard gathering dust on a shelf (or more likely, collecting windswept desert sand from the nearby Trafford road) I’ve put it to some kind of good use,holding the art materials that I use to create drawings and such you might see on here 🙂   there maybe a time it gets reused as a pint pot – but it’ll be well cleaned before I use it for that ! 🙂
