Good Morning Tuesday gang! And a happy Tuesday to all!
I took lots of photos but when I downloaded them onto my computer I noticed that none of the photos had drinks in them. Oh well, luckily I received a postcard of the aunties yesterday.
It is another addition to my collection of postcards illustrated by Inge Löök. Inge is a gardener as well as an illustrator. She was born in the same year as me (1951) and currently lives in Pernaja in Finland.
These 'aunties' have something to celebrate in their little greenhouse and they have opened a bottle of bubbly. I reckon that qualifies me for T for Tuesday, where we share something with a drink in it on Elizabeth and Bleubeard's blog.
The card was sent to me by someone in Germany and here are the lovely stamps:
Erika from MyNameIs Erika/Bioartgal is back from her trip to Iceland. (I have been drooling over the awesome photos on her blog). Before she left she sent me some happy mail. I haven't showed this yet as I wanted to wait until she got home again.
A large envelope with 5 beautiful ATCs, two little stamps and what I call 'bits 'n bobs'.
The ATCs are a series of five on the theme of tea and coffee. Thank you Erika! They are truly stunning! I think I will frame them!
The Egyptian mummy things are actually playing cards! The playing card with the swords is from a Spanish (or Italian) set of playing cards. I love playing cards as cards are fun to use for crafting. Here is an image of some other cards (from the internet).
Building update: Last Tuesday I showed you the stairwell. Since then I have put a hall table and mirror on the landing by the door to the living quarters.
There is yours truly with camera in the mirror. You can also see that the tiling is still in progress. I have asked my DH to leave it for now and concentrate on my craft room.
I'm going to do my house work now quickly, then shower and choose something to wear as we are going out for lunch (as we do every Tuesday). I'l try and visit you before we go out, other wise it will be later in the day.
Have a great Tuesday and a great week ahead,
