Last weekend I got to work making papier mâché balloons to replace the real, helium-filled balloons in the window of beautiful Tales on Moon Lane bookshop because of course, helium-filled balloons deflate and fall after a couple of days.
Making them was a bit fraught (not interesting enough to go into details) but hanging them in the heat, in a confined space, also proved quite tricky. But hey, they looked FAB.

I returned an hour later, and three had fallen and split.
But it was hot and I was in a hurry, so here's the thing; Samuel Drew is now holding two balloons, and a blue balloon has quite intentionally floated down to the bottom of the display.
