How are you all? Here I am with another blog post from the cave. It's cold and stormy outside and snow is predicted during the coming night. But we have a log fire burning and feel very safe and cosy in our cave house.
Lets start with showing you some postcards. I received this one from the Ukraine:
They are traditional folk dolls called 'motanka'.
This is the info I found on these dolls:
My next card is royalty, (looking very bored). It comes from Russia and is in fact the future emperor Nicholas II with his bride Alice of Hesse in 1894.
Just look at her waist. That must have been a very tight corset!
The stamps are lovely. The one on the right is a 'Happy New Year' wish from the Kremlin in Moscow. And the left one is about the World Exhibition of Postal Stamps in St Petersburg in 2007. As for me, I think it looks like a Blue Peter Badge (the Brits among us will know what I mean).
Last week I told you I was on a diet. So you will be expecting a glass of water. Well, I must confess I have been naughty last week. We went out for lunch and I had a glass of white wine.
The soup is a cold soup called salmorejo. The little bits you can see are Serrano ham, with shredded boiled egg in the middle. Hubby is having chicken soup.
Needless to say I didn't lose any weight this week....
Now, I have been scrapboking again. This is what I made:
This was my mum's 92nd birthday. And below is a photo of me and my mum having tea.
Both my naughty glas of wine and the above photo will qualify me to join the T-party organised by Elizabeth and Bluebeard at Alteredbooklover.
I hope to see you all there!
Bye for now,
Have a good week,
