Gee Bee DH10C kitchen
The table is by Barton or Lundby, the rest of the furniture is home-made using plywood (I must have been flush with pocket-money), cocktail sticks, matchsticks, fimo and a quick-drying modelling clay - and lots and lots of ink cartridges for a fountain pen. I wrote with a fountain pen in school so there was a steady supply of empty cartridges and they were just right for all sorts of things - painted white inside and with a bit of tinfoil on top they made lovely milk bottles, the bottoms cut off made good jam jars that could be covered with greaseproof paper, a bit of modelling clay and some gloss paint magicked up a wine bottle - there was practically no limit to their uses!

I'm wondering how much ink cartridges cost now! I wonder if anyone I know uses ink pens - will have to investigate

Zoe I still do, and looking at this house again I have been thinking I will start washing and saving the empty ones again! They're pretty cheap by the way. Kids in primary school have to use ink pens here (Germany), maybe they do in England too and you could get someone to collect them for you?
