The kindness of strangers

After today's floor talk a lovely lady called Jean came up to speak to me.

Jean told me of her sister's childhood dolls house Dol -Toi furniture. And then reached into her handbag and pulled out a small plastic bag.

"These are some pieces I'm not keeping. I'm afraid they're not very exciting..." she said but was drowned out by my yelp of excitement when I pulled out these from under the (granted) not very exciting wooden table and chairs:A Triang Spot-On lawnmower and garden roller! Which I don't have and are a perfect match for the Triang V Bungalow I'm working on at the moment. Actually, they'd be perfect for the Triang house in the exhibition but I doubt Dale and Rowan would be too happy with me asking them to add them...
