I'm linking up with Annie at A Stitch in Time for Friday Smiles. A bloghop where we count our blessings and think of all the things that made us smile that week, and for a moment forgetting all our moans and sorrows.
I am smiling from ear to ear! I had breast cancer in 2011 and yesterday I had my six monthly check-up with the oncologist. I got the all-clear for another 6 months! Yippee! Hurray! Praise God!
So I will show you a happy looking postcard:
It came to me from Finland last month. Sent to me by Paula (57), who works nights, delivering newspapers with her husband. She has been doing that for 30 years.
The illustration on the card is by well known Finnish illustrator Rudolf Koivu (1890-1946). He was born in St Petersburg, Russia and died in Finland. He is known for his illustrations of fairy tales and children's books. (Have a look at Ellen Louwes' board on Pinterest.)
Paula put a lovely stamp on the card too. The famous swan by designer Klaus Haapaniemi.
I have another card by Rudolf Koivu in my collection:
Now for a final big smile:
Most of you know I am a retired nurse, and nurses have a particular sense of humor. I hope nobody is offended by a bare bottom...
(For whom English is not a first language: ICU stands for Intensive Care Unit. And if you read the letters out loud, you get 'I see you'!)
That's it from me,
Have a smiley Friday and a good week,
