This is a postcard from my collection by the artist Inge Look. She draws the 'naughty' old ladies who have lots of fun. This is one of my favorites.
Wouldn't this be fun! Making a den under the table and having a cuppa with my bestie who brings along a bunch of flowers. I'd have cakes and chocolates at the ready and we'd have a whale of a time!
Pia, who sent me the card wrote about an interesting project she did in her family. This is literally what she wrote:
"We did a project in my family last April. The project called “Don’t buy anything in April”. During that time we didn’t buy any food, cosmetics, fuel, postcards etc. We ate what was found in the refrigerator, freezer and cupboards. There is no any reason for the project. One day we just joked/debated that it is possible. Before that we didn’t buy any extra items. During the project we learnt a lot about our life and how people too often buy the completely unnecessary items, mainly impulse buys, like chocolate! I hope that we learnt to think before we are going to buy something from the store. In this case we saved ourselves as well as money and the environment."
It was much requested and was issued in March 2014. In time for the wedding invitations to be sent out, as this stamp was called 'wedding'. Designed and photographed by Ari Lakaniemi and Susanna Rumpu, the self-adhesive stamp is printed on foil paper which makes the rings glisten like real gold rings.
I'm going to link in with T for Tuesday, so you can all have a giggle with the naughty ladies and perhaps also have a serious thought about your shopping habits...
Have a good day,
