Discovery Museum

Yesterday Benni and I went to the Discovery Museum. I haven't been able to walk much recently as I badly injured my foot. Some gentle exercise was prescribed so the Discovery Museum seemed like a good idea.

There is an exhibition about the history of local manufacturing. Lots of things used to be made locally.
We could only think of a few currently
Cars at Nissan Sunderland,
Offshore Platforms at Wallsend
Wind Turbines at Blyth?

Decluttering people's furniture

To achieve the minimalist look, the furniture had to go... plenty of light coming in and space to sit and meditate!
A local charity collected it all and took it away in their van


Before...






After...


If you want to sell or donate furniture, make sure it has the fire safety labels on, don't cut them off!

Recently helped find a home for some heirloom Victorian antimacassars
