it's a beautiful world



It works! If you saw my last post, you'll know what I'm going on about! I love anything that glows, but especially something as interesting as the world! I love it so much! I had to buy new fuse and find a special type of 'sign' 15watt pygmy bayonet bulb...this was not easy, but in the end, S&M Tools (no sniggering!) on Leather Lane, did not let me down. That shop has everything...if they don't have it, you don't need it!
Now I can relax with a cup of tea, and say hello to a few places in the world...


Hello Marie & Blaise in Scotland!


Hello Nao in Tokyo! (He is there till the end of the month, sniff sniff) He is to go up to a place near to 'Sendai' soon, where his home town is. Do you see it?


Made in Italy! A bit random me thinks? in the 80s, before everything was made in China, things were made all over the place, even in Britain, I kid you not!


It's the world that is also a lamp, and I think it is the bee's knees!

*UPDATE* I found a great website that helps you date your globe, see here My illuminating globe turns out to be made in 1978, same age as me! It's amazing how much the world has changed in my lifetime.
