"If you talk to God you're religious. If God talks to you, you're psychotic."

True Till Death


I went to an antique fair yesterday and found this beautiful late Victorian lithographic print, it isn’t worth much but I returned several times to the seller, captivated by the models face. The semi religious theme is typical of the period and I seem to remember my Nan having similar prints when I was a child. Sadly it is a little damaged which I have “repaired” with Serfi but I expect that to have it professionally repaired, re-mounted and framed will make it total cost much more that it is worth, especially as the original only cost £7.00 – but for the pleasure of viewing it daily it will be worth it.
