I'm often attracted to things nautical, ship's wheels, anchors, compasses, sailing ships etc. I always stop to look at seascapes in art shops and galleries. There's no reason for this, no family history that I am aware of, no involvment with the sea whatso ever. A pleasure trip from Bridlington Harbour once made me seasick and that is my only experience of being on the sea. So why I like these things is a mystery.
My attraction to them though, may explain why, today, I couldn't bring myself to leave this little pot sitting on a charity shop shelf. Even though I have vowed, "No more stuff", it just had to come home with me.
