ABC Wednesday - I.

Late again, but at least I'm here now!

This week the letter is I.

I'm very fond of incense, which comes in several forms.

There's loose incense made of powders, herbs, and gums or resins. This kind of incense is usually smouldered on glowing charcoal, producing plenty of smoke.

Then there are the more usual sticks, which again come in a seemingly endless variety of scents and sizes.

These small sticks are presented in a neat gift collection.

Now, I know you'd be disappointed if I didn't show you a dragon. I've considered naming this one Ignius! He holds a cone of incense in his front paws.

He also holds a burning cone inside himself, and the smoke pours out through his open jaws.
I think he looks a bit young to smoke!

There will be many more interesting and inventive "I" words to be found through the ABC Wednesday page. Why not investigate?

ABC Wednesday - H.

I'm running even later than ever!

For those of you who don't know of horse brasses, Wikipedia has a brief description here.

I grew up loving brass ornaments - my mother collected many - but we only ever saw horse brasses in hotels and cafés.
In recent times I've been able to gather a few. Some are very old, others are more modern. When I have more I'll probably be able to arrange them more suitably.

These hang in the hallway.

These are by my husband's desk. He's had the dolphin brass for many years.

And these are in my son's room.

I hope to find many more designs eventually.

Do visit the ABC Wednesday page to find heaps of H entries!

ABC Wednesday - G.

A Gorgeous Gift of a red Glass dragon, given to me by Eldest Daughter.

It grabs the clear glass pillar with golden claws.

And it has gleaming golden gnashers and horns as well.
