Este MacLeod...

Have you seen my donkey?


Melting snow

Mother goose

I've just come across these wonderful paintings by Este MacLeod
and would be very happy with any of them!

Sweets for my sweet...

OK I don't remember some of these, they must have been before my time,
and as I used to live in a sweet shop I have to own up to having helped myself to several of them,
but the ones whose packaging I recognise from then are;

Rowntrees fruit gums boxes - Rolo - Fry's 5 centre - Black Magic - Cadbury's Dairy Milk Flat Twenty box - Bassett's Jelly Babies - Picnic - Mars bar - Spangles - Cadbury's Fruit & Nut bar - polo - Maltesers box - Rowntree's Fruit Gums tube - Caramac - Fry's Pepermint bar - Cadbury's Milk Tray block (I loved the green barrel, a small box of Milk Tray cost I think 2/6d)  - Fry's Chocolate Creams box - Toblerone - Cadbury's Roses Chocolates box - Opal fruits - Smarties box.

Although I know some of the others... Kit Kat - Aero - Crunchie - Bassett's Liquorice Allsorts - Fry's Turkish Delight, I don't recognise their packaging, there are also quite a few things missing from this picture.
If I could bagsy one now...
think it would be...
the fry's 5 centre as I don't think they make it any more.
OK, you've got one bagsy, when it's gone it's gone, so what would you choose?
