Good morning lovely ladies,
How are you all? I hope you are smiling, as there is always something to smile about.
I had happy mail in the form of some postcards. They always make me smile. This (rather strange) card comes from China. It was sent by Pinkie who lives in Wuxi Jiangsu (near Shanghai). She says the card shows her favorite cartoon.
The stamps are gorgeous. The left two have what looks like fireworks and I imagine they represent the Chinese New Year (But that's just a guess). And the stamp on the right has two children with rucksacks enjoying a beautiful view.The second card is the cover illustration of an old book. It is Punch and Judy (1942).
Punch and Judy is a puppet show really, but someone must have written a book with stories about Punch and Judy. I went on the net and found a few more illustration from the book:
The card was sent to me by Pranab from India. There is a slogan printed on the back of the card: 'There is nuffin like a Puffin!'.
The stamp shows my favorite animal the turtle/tortoise. I find them fascinating. They look so pre-historic. If only they could talk...
This week the weather has not been so good. Just as well we made the best of it last week. We ate outside last Sunday and hubby cooked some pork chops on the BBQ.
I had made a salad and we had this with some slices of home-made brown bread. Yumm!
Yesterday was my 'play-day' when I disappear into my craft room and 'play' all day. I did two more Pocket Letters. I can't show you those yet but I'm going to show you the ones I made a couple of weeks ago, which have now been received.
This one went to someone called Lucie who lives in Hungary.
The second one went to Zoey in the UK.
But I have not received anything back. They were private swaps (outside the group). So I don't think I will do that again.
As usual I will put some funnies at the end for you to chuckle at.
I'm going to link up with Annie at A Stitch In Time and with Virginia at Rocking Your Week Friday.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend.
