Scatterday - R

Scatterday (now fortnightly by request of the majority of participants) is here again. This fortnight Cinzia gave us the letter

and our categories are:
# mammal
# technology
# transport
# something red from your sewing room.

Sylvac rabbit figurine. Either my great aunt or my grandmother had one of these cute bunnies, but unfortunately it wasn't passed down to me. I had to buy my own.

My father was a radio technician, and as I grew up our kitchen table seemed always to hold at least one valve radio he was repairing for a relative or neighbour. This transistor radio is the first product I remember seeing on TV and desperately wanting. Not only was it a radio, you could wear it as a bangle! I was very happy when my parents gave me one for Christmas. Mine was blue. I don't remember how much they cost new, but I saw this red one for sale for $165 last week.

At dawn on the River Ganges at Varanasi, December 2008.

  1. great items, and here was I hoping Rabbits were really mammals and not rodents had to google to make sure.
    Well done.

  2. Great photos Vireya. Love the rowboats and I also remember those transistor radios. Funny isn't how a few of us are looking back in history for some photos.

  3. Lovely photos, especially love the row boats on the Ganges. Lots of nice red from the sewing room too.

  4. The River Ganges is many people in such a small space. $165 for a radio..wonders never cease.

  5. Rabbits seem very popular mammals. Love your rowboats on the Ganges.

  6. Your retro radio brings back memories! It was on my 'to buy' list but by the time I had saved my pocket money, they had sold out! Love all the red from your stash.

  7. love the rowboats......cannot believe I forgot them...LOL.
    We must all be influenced by those baby bunny plates in our youth.

  8. Lovely photo of the Ganges. And a great radion. Have never seen one like that before.

  9. Love the red collection from your stash.

  10. Awesome Vireya, DH was asking if anyone had included a photo of their RED scissors!

  11. Good photos! The last one, of all the red items in your sewing room, is a brilliant photo. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Fabulous photos, love your rabbit.

  13. Such delightful R's and I especially like your collection of red from your sewing room!
