These came into the workshop to be mended earlier this week. From time-to-time they play a very important and very public part in life down here in our wonderful rural community in Chulmleigh.
For those of you who have never seen these items before there's a lovely handmade keyring on offer for the first person to guess what they are via our facebook page.
And if you already know what they're used for - without giving the game away as to what they are, tell us how many should be in the box and you could win a keyring too.
Happy guessing everyone!

|welcome to hilary johnson handmade|
(Unlike today - the 5 million shades of green are still out there, but the edge has rather been taken off them by the prowling dark rainclouds hovering menacingly above Chulmleigh; someone needs to tell the weather that greys and navy blues are so last year - it's all about the greens now).
|a quick rehearsal|
We'd been checking the schedules for a broadcast date and with 70 episodes per series that's a lot of house-hunting to get through. But at long last we were on - so on Wednesday 5th April at 3 o'clock we downed tools to watch Hilary's 15 minutes of fame (with unexpected butterflies - it's very weird seeing yourself on tv and you never quite know how you'll look and sound. Quite posh as it turns out!)
