I love cameras and teacups!
I have an ever growing collection of vintage cameras and teacups. I love the stories that old things tell, and I enjoy using them in the way that they were intended.
I also love nothing more than new pens and paper - I always used to ask for them for Christmas as a child. Last weekend I bought some Letraset 'Permanent Promarkers' in 5 pastel shades - I've not used these before and they are lovely. I think they work really well with the black lines.

Rescued from my father in law Kelvin's loft with a few other old cameras on New Year's.

I bought some more markers today, in a different range of colours. I can't wait to draw more things from around my flat, I've certainly got plenty of lovely, old things to inspire me (sorry Daf, I won't buy any more things from the charity shops for a while!)
