A few weeks ago I bought a “Girl With A Pearl Earring” canvaswork picture from the church garage sale for $2. Somebody had put a lot of time and effort into their work and it seemed a shame for it to be unloved, so I have turned it into a bag to take marketing. Inside it has two old doyleys for pockets and it will come in handy when we are scouring the local markets for bargains.

Mr Shoestring received this
As he has recently been preoccupied by all matters sartorial (in fact Lady Raglan now calls him Captain Peacock), he received it eagerly and has scanned it from cover to cover in order to become ever more well groomed and ready for any occasion.
