Ars Quondam  
I finally got around to framing and hanging firin's prints, which I've had for a while. There was some excitement involving the discovery that American centimetres are (like everything else) larger than British centimetres*. At the moment they are hanging in our stairwell which is badly in need of a lick of paint (and has been since we rewired the house in 2007) but we've stalled a little in confusion about getting the hall windows replaced because our listed building status trumps fenster regulations but few tradesmen are prepared to take the risk.

As a bonus I also have photo of the print I gave claraste as a thank you for catering B's birthday and which very nearly made her cry.

As a side note firin has concluded that, due to circumstances beyond her control, the business in its current form isn't sustainable and she's having a clearance sale at her Etsy shop.

*B. has pointed out that, in fact, it isn't that their centimetres are larger, it's that when they label something 35x50cm they actually mean 14x20 inches.
