I DO give a damn that I can't remember which blog owns this photo:
I know I made a note at the time which blog I'd seen it on. Do you think I can find that note? I've spent the best part of this morning looking through all your blogs trying to trace the post, without luck.
If this is your pic, I make my apologies for using it without your permission and hope very much that you don't mind. And PLEASE let me know who you are so I can give a link back to your post.
Anyway, I was really taken with the sign but I believe the price was something like £130.
Ever since I've been on the lookout for Lexicon games in the charity shops so that I could try and make my own.
I had one game already. I found another at a car boot for 50p. That should do it, I thought.
Two vital letters were missing from the car boot purchase. I needed another.
After weeks of searching, one mysteriously turned up in my dresser drawer. I strongly suspect my mum snuck it there, but she denies it was her.
Anyway, at long last I was able to go ahead with the project and completed it this weekend:
Buying a frame that was six foot wide was going to cost some, so I bought a piece of MDF and asked the nice man in B&Q to cut it length ways for me. The frame is painted onto the MDF with acrylic paint and the background with leftover Farrow and Ball New White.
I'm very pleased.
