Forgot to mention that both the oblong and the triangular are 10 inches or 25 cm tall

That brought back memories!  -I went on the H1 bus to Liverpool when I was around 15 or 16 to see them play at  - I think it was - Liverpool Empire - circa 1965 I think . :dance:

Back in the days when an innocent 15 year old could go off to the big bad city alone and come home safe!

I went by bus with a couple fo schoolfriends to Glasgow Apollo to see T.Rex.  :smg:
I was 12. We'd found multicoloured glittery stars somewhere and had stuck them on our faces.
We got a write-up in NME or Melody Maker, can't remember which -

" ...within seconds of the music starting the teenagers with stars all over their cherubic faces sitting next to us, dissolved into spasms of ecstacy... "

We had already "interviewed" the reporters, (with fake mikes - we were having fun) telling them they were too old to be at a T.Rex concert.

Your vases are just divine!
Cheers, Sue (M)

Sorry, just had to go musical!

I was about to go down the Olivia Newton-John road, but managed to restrain myself at the last moment.  ;D
