It seems I only blinked since New Year's Day and now it is March! Time flies! What's more... it's Tuesday!
Here is my postcard for today:
It's from Finland and features the famous Paula-girl. The Paula girl advertised the Paulig brand coffee and was always dressed in national costume. This photo/advert is from 1950. It was sent to me by Ritva, a lady the same age as me. She writes that the temperatures are 2 degrees C. Brrr!

I'm going to link up with Elizabeth and Bluebeard at Altered booklover for our weekly gathering T for Tuesday. Please join us if you have anything to share with a drink in it.
My most exciting news is that the kitchen cabinets that the carpenter is making, have been put up (albeit without doors) but it gives me an idea of how my kitchen is going to look. The doors are going to be of solid wood but the cabinet carcasses not as you can see. (would be too heavy).
Tomorrow he is going to bring the doors, a few more shelves, the sink and the cooker hood. I can't wait! When that is done we can order the granite worktop. I hope that doesn't take too long...

He is a quirky teapot boy. (He looks quite distressed) Quirky? I call that weird!
That is it from me today. Happy T-day all of you.
