Lovely brightly coloured notebooks and sketch pads for sale in the 1853 Gallery in Salts Mill, nicely complementing the turquoise Burmantofts pottery vase. I'm sure it's not just me... I love empty notebooks! There's a kind of sensuous pleasure in them. You can perhaps see why I try to leave my purse at home when I go exploring in the Mill!
STOP PRESS: No-one was exploring very far in Saltaire on Thursday. Part of the village was evacuated when thieves stole copper gas pipes and caused a massive gas leak. (How stupid and thoughtless can you get?) I missed all the excitement as I was at work and by the time I came home the drama was over, but the local paper, The Telegraph & Argus, reported it (see here).
