Papas Slidebox May 26, 2008

I've given two of Papas slides a makeover. I'm doing that as I go along to the ones I fancy. And the ones that aren't too scratched up. That is why I've put a layer of scratchy over the boys – that slide was pretty grubby and no amount of the healing brush or the clone tool was going to help it. But the way I see it thats part of their appeal anyway. Don't forget they are over fifty years old and have spent their lives in a garage.

I'm doing about, hmmm, ten I'd say to hang on a strip of wall in the kitchen.

I love these little guys – the curls and those matching outfits. Footloose and fancy free.



And this guy here – captain calm I call him. Playing around with that snake and he hasn't even left himself room to take a step back. And his shoes are very cool.

    Those Indian (?) snake-charmers are supremely confident. Or else. Or else they are at the doctor receiving anti-venom shots.
