BOOKSHOPS 
AROUND
 THE WORLD

G'day folks,

Anyone who has read my award-winning book 'KY!' will relate to this post. The main character in that book, which is about bullying by the way, loved opp shops, where she could buy books cheaply. Rida Khalid, just devoured books. She would smell the old books and wonder what they had witnessed.

Anyway, check out these fine photographs of bookshops around the world.























































Clancy's comment: Such charm. I could smell the history from here. By the way, grab a copy of 'KY!' - in paperback or e-book. You might just love it.

30 October 2017 - DAVE’S MAGNIFICENT CARAVAN


DAVE’S MAGNIFICENT 
CARAVAN

G'day folks,

Welcome to the work of a clever man.

For some of us, DIY means hanging up a few picture frames at the weekend, or giving the garden shed a new lick of paint. For Dave Moult of Malmesbury in Wiltshire, England, DIY means building a teardrop trailer from scratch that Jules Verne would have been jealous of.




This is actually the sixth teardrop trailer David has built himself, sourcing old original parts from car-boot sales or eBay. While the materials don’t cost him much, Moult can spend hundreds of hours over many weekends working on a trailer. He gets quite attached to them and has only ever sold one for £5,000 after 2 years of use.


Let’s take a look-see at the evolution of his epic DIY project…

The leather panels came from an old sofa Dave bought for £15 and worked with a specialist company Retro Retrims to give the feel of an old explorer’s library. The chandelier? It’s fashioned from an old coffee pot and copper pipes.


























Clancy's comment: Wow, how cozy is that? Love ya work, Dave.

I'm ...
