I have some postcards to share. This week I received eight(!) in one day after weeks of nothing! (Do you think the postman saves them up?)
It's difficult to choose, but I think I'll show you this one from Iceland:
This is the stamp:
I think it shows the Icelandic knitting (in the round).
The second postcard comes from Germany:
It was sent to me by Petra, who writes:"After Reading that you do like to cook tasty meals, I remembered that I had taken a photo of my stepdaughter some years ago. She was working in a restaurant besides her studies then. And that is what she looked like. Hope you like this unusual snapshot."
And here are the stamps:
I think they are a bit out of focus. Sorry.
Yesterday I went to Baza (our nearby town) and had breakfast with my friends. We asked the waiter to take this photo, and it is fun to see his reflection in the window.
Breakfast here consists of coffee and a toasted baguette. They spread minced tomato over it and we help ourselves to olive oil and salt. Yum, lovely. I ate it so quickly, I forgot to take a picture. But here is my coffee. They call this a 'café cortado', which is an espresso with a dash of milk.
As we walked back to the car we passed some beautiful buildings. Look at this one:
The railings of the balconies are made of intricate iron work. I am noticing these things as we have just ordered our railings for our windows and I had to choose a design.
This is a traditional railing:
I will show ours when they have been delivered.
While we walked through that street with all those lovely old houses, all of a sudden we saw this:
It looks very out of place if you ask me.
That is it from me today. I'm going to visit Elisabeth and Bleubeard at Altered Book Lover and hope you will join me there,
Have a good week,
