Here's my little storage shed, rather grandly called 'the packaging shed', it's where I keep cardboard boxes, bubble wrap and a big roll of brown paper. It's also home to spare easels, drawing boards and miscellaneous frames not to mention the nests of wood mice and the occasional robin; It's only really held up by all the teetering piles of stuff inside. I've always loved sheds, the Cedar and dust smell of them, it comes from early memories of Grampy Melve's carpenter's shed and dad's allotment shed. Last week a card in the Post office offered  a free shed ! now propped up in our garden. Soon I'll too be busy with demolition and reconstruction followed by artist's storage bliss!
