More leftover objects
Yes, there are still more! Did I mention that the garden shed is full of things too? Blogger has been frustrating me for ages now as I can't reply to comments except here on the blog. So in answer to a couple of questions - the couple living here before had SO many ornaments around the house and garden that I suspect they simply didn't have the space to take everything with them. Most of them were of white terrier dogs (like their own dog) and all of those were taken.
I like the tiny chimes they have left in the front patio.
But I don't like these at all. They are on top of a very large well ornament! Maybe it's the style, they are the same as the deer, and those strange, dark eyes. Garden ornaments should be either stylish or tacky, nothing in between!
Deb H asked if there are garage sales here and that reminded me of the street market I passed through in Carouge a couple of weeks ago. I'm not sure about garage sales but that market that I had assumed was a weekend activity was actually a special event where the residents of each area in Geneva bring out their unwanted belongings to sell. It happens at different dates throughout the summer. This would explain why it was so crowded and spread out and why there was such an interesting range of things for sale! I've been trying to find out when the one in Thonex is happening but have had no luck - it may have been one of the earlier ones.
