New Art Print & A Very Special Painting

I went for a little exploration down the road the other day and found this great framed print in a charity shop. I think the original's by Brueghel the younger, but if anyone knows for sure please let me know. The information on the back says it's called 'Village Festival', but I'm not sure that's actually correct. Either way, I think it looks pretty neat.

Currently, it's propped up on a chest of drawers in the hall until we get a chance to hang it up properly.

Speaking of which, we finally managed to hang up this painting of my dad's in our living room. It's a space scene he painted years ago and I just love it. Actually it was Tim who asked if we could have it when he saw it in my dad's garage (we're both huge lovers of science fiction so it the space theme really appealed to us) and Dad was delighted that someone wanted it. My sister has another painting of his in her flat too which makes it even cooler. I wish he would paint more though.

Here are some sample songs from each album:

Tombstone Locket

Before Christmas, I treated myself to this tombstone necklace that opens like a locket. I haven't put anything inside it yet. I think it'll probably end up being either a photo of Tim and me or a little quote from scripture. Not sure yet. Either way, I love this necklace!
