I can sense you're wondering what the devil they are.
String holders no less!
Fabulous aren't they? They are wall mountable and they have a handy loopy thing at the side where you can store your scissors. I know what you're thinking: cute, vintage and *er hem* useful all at the same time. What could be better?
The dog string holder is by Arthur Wood and dates from the 60s. The cat string holder was made by Howard Holt in 1958 - very fitting as it was the year that a little Mr J and P popped into the world.
Just wanted to say a BIG thank you to all of you who commiserated with me over the hard disk drive debacle that I bored you all with in my previous post. I didn't think anything could be done about the drive but lots of you encouraged me to seek further advice, and I'm currently badgering the resident computer geek at the university I work for. Fingers crossed.....
We're off on holiday next week. Camping in Aachen (Germany) and Namur (Belgium). V excited.
On a final note, the latest event to rock J and P Towers (almost literally) is that the next door neighbour's builder has knocked a hole in our kitchen wall!

Heavens to Betsy (must use that phrase more often), whatever next!
