The Museum of Green.

(Embroidery thread, found exit pass, gyroscope, found plastic aeroplane, dinosaur, Miracle ink (but I haven't yet found out what is miraculous about it), small stamp pad, Zam-Buk salve (I grew up on it), malachite pendant I won 30 years ago, bead and wire ring, office stamp pad, green glitter glue, broken wing of bird made in China, wooden letter, shwe-shwe embroidered brooch.)

This is my favourite so far-and goes nicely with your new header design. How are the leg warmers going? I discovered a new method of casting off in a hilarious but useful knitting book from the fifties. You knit the stitch, then knit the next one but keep the tail end of it on the left hand needle-the loop of the stitch is how they describe it. You then cast off the first over the second stitch, and then make an extra stitch with the loop, then cast that off and so on. That is a terrible description isn't it? Anyway, it makes the cast off edge a bit more stretchy-good for legwarmers! I recognise that type of brooch!

I agree, a fun museum with several unusual items. What would you use an exit pass for--is it like "get out of jail free?" I have fond memories of gyroscopes. Wondering with you about the miracle of ink and guessing Zam-Buk is a lot like Carmex. I really like the malachite pendant.

I love your little museums! Perhaps the miracle ink is like disappearing ink, for spies to use!

Your museum is on my list of famous wonderful places to visit before i die.
Glad you came up for air a few days ago- I really dislike that your job owns you. I curse it! why can't they just give you the money and say" this is just for being" and let you go your merry artistic clever way.
