21 November '17: Ebay beauties

One of my favourite pastimes is trawling through @ebay in search of the delightful and unexpected. It’s how we rock over here at Colour File HQ. I put in random words like ‘vintage’ and ‘cerulean’ to see what pops up, then hop from page to page for hours until I triumphantly find exactly what I wasn’t actually looking for. I see it as time well spent. One such discovery is yardsticks (top left). I haven’t yet bought any of these little beauties (which used to be given away by US companies and even politicians by way of promoting their services and are now much beloved of crafters) but I’m sure it won’t be long….
