Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Couples, Twins, Two of anything.

When Vanda and I were discussing this photo challenge all I could think of at first were very obvious things like gloves, glasses, socks and shoes. I didn’t really want to post pictures of them so I had to put on my thinking cap and look around the house. Surely there would be something but what? In the end I chose some of my ornaments that are related to one another or are pairs. I also came up with playing cards because in many of the games you are required to collect pairs. I also have some very nice salt and pepper shakers. Here are my photos.

I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see
