This blog will comprise a collection of ephemera, mess and miscellaneous artifacts reflecting on the writer's life.

'sh' words are the theme for the blog this week, and yesterday's Guardian had a great shell chart which Molly put up on her wall.
Molly always makes gardens in the sand with shells on beaches.
Here is one of them.

Molly also surrounded her garden with found objects, and I found this interesting, a sort of ephemeral sculpture.

I have always been interested in found object art as here.
Part of my interest is the transformation of one thing into another, but it is the narrative behind the transformation that I am interested in.

Here is another potential art object.
What could it become?

I like Mollie's arrangements. Look really nice. It is great what you can find on the beach.
When I was young we made miniature gardens; it was quite a craze for a while. You would get a big chamber pot (really) and put big stones in , then Mud. Then moss (for grass) and a few herbs. A mirror fora pond. I loved it.

AS for the other thing; it is a chair.

THanks so much for commenting Dr Joolz.

I think Mollie would like the shells I found in Australia, also the beaches (which unfortunately you can't smuggle home, unlike the shells). I tooks lots of pictures of them.

And I meant to say I very much like her shell garden.
