Well at least they got Charlie Dimmock anatomically accurate!! :shock:

Nick, I'm sure you can find something at Chief Trading Post. We went there on a forum visit a couple of months ago, and they're not too far away from you. I'm pretty sure there were snakes available!

I was tidying up this afternoon, as part of autumn prep, and gathered all the lamps we laid out a few weeks ago and took a photo of them all grouped together

Please don't say that again. I'm trying to ignore the fact that autumn is here and I've got to think about putting things away for the winter.

Nice collection of lamps, did you buy them all at the same time? (they all look like they come from the same source). If a collector of stamps is a philatelist, what is a collector of lamps called?

We did when we were in Marrakech. The designs were pretty standard in all the soukhs :)

I'm probably going to regret this but I've just bought a concrete crocodile on Ebay.

Not bad Mick C icon_thumleft I like it! Especially when it starts to weather. Good price for the size!

Glad you like it Mark, I've just got to wrestle it into the car now (sound familiar?) :D

Special thanks to Mixiepalms by the way, I found it using his link on the Ebay bargain topic below. Cheers Mick.

I bought a new garden 'pet' today on a craft stall in the middle of Milton Keynes shopping centre from the curiously named Nana Sue & Papa Peg

Gaz, you're so awful ..... For everyone else, the wooden horse dates back to UK Oasis time and entails Owen and one great scam. If Owen reads this I'm sure he'll want to ensure the story continous to thrive and he may well fill out the blanks :wink:

Shame on you Gaz
