'Outdoor'

Hmm, the eyechild can claim windows on Oxford Street - these ones for Gap earlier in the summer and some there now with 'a return to school theme'.  Pretty good, yes?

Here in the shires his father and I have also done a bit of 'window dressing'  - designing this archway in a field for the YFC's County Chairman's Ball which will be held this weekend in a Big Top. I suspect it's a bit of a traffic hazard as people keep slowing down to look, causing much braking by following cars. Fortunately we're too far away to hear the 'crump-crash-bang' of metal on metal and subsequent slanging match.

Apologies for the quality of the photograph - I'll have a word with the Glam Ass who hasn't reached the chapter on focussing in the camera manual yet. Sigh.



And clowns. Aren't they truly gross?

Clowns have always frightened me and that's before I started reading Stephan King!

It looks very professional to me - and the Eyechild's windows are beautiful. In another life I dressed windows for a now defunct lady's chain, but there was little room for imagination as all was directed from head office.

I believe I saw that while on my way to Shrewsbury on Saturday! :)

I love the window dressing, particulary the first with the lighthouse! Ingenious!

Clever, talented Eyechild, but I see the gift is inherited from the parents.

Wonderful archway, wonderful windows.
Eye child can come and design sets for us at any time.!

Like the eyechild's windows very much (and your work too obviously). I have always found clowns a bit scary for some reason!

You & the Glam One made that? Marvelous! I hope the YFC have a smashing event this weekend.
I really liked Eyechild's blog by the way. Bet you're dead proud, as we say in the Lancashire portion of Ohio. X

I saw that last Saturday diving between Westbury and Churchstoke looking for electric fencing for dogs - we wondered what it was all about

Thanks everybody - can't take any credit for the construction though, the resourceful and talented YFs did that.

There's a charity concert on Thursday evening (starts at 7.30 if you're interested) and a rather grand sounding Ball on Saturday. All that and harvest too.....

What a lovely doorway - to anywhere!
