Good morning lovely people!, How are you all? Have you had much to smile about? I am here to show you a few postcards I have received and to show you a few things that have been happening here in Caniles. Life is full of smiles.
First of all here is a wonderful vintage postcard from Finland. It is a 1939 travel poster. Quite frankly it baffles me as I found that Helsinki hosted the summer Olympics in 1952. So why they would issue a poster or a card with the Olympic rings in 1939? Perhaps they bid and didn't win....I don't know.
The card was sent to me by Sari in very good English. She wrote that she was recovering from breast cancer and all the treatment.She also mentions that Finland does not have a royal family, but that "Our president and his lovely wife and newborn baby are almost the same!" There is an image of the president on the stamp but I forgot to scan it.
Then this black and white (also vintage) image comes from Germany.The sender, Martin, lives near the Dutch border in a town that is known as bicycle heaven. He writes: "Nordhorn is one of the finest bike towns in Germany".
For Friday smiles I always link up with Annie at A Stitch In Time and with Virginia at Rocking Your World Friday. Last week Virginia had made fluffy scones and added the link to the recipe. So I made some too this week. Thank you Virginia!
And this is what they looked like when they came out of the oven. A bit irregular, but they tasted lovely. Really Fluffy. We don't have self raising flour here so I used normal flour and added a sachet of baking powder. That is probably why they have risen so much.
My hubby has been really busy getting the last details of the ground floor flat ready. The gates and railing were ready and the man came to place them. Here is the door from the carport to the patio.
This is the door from the carport into the kitchen/lounge.
Here is hubby painting the railing for the main windows.
That certainly made me smile. This weekend we will be having a house warming party/bring and share. So we are busy getting everything ready.
I will be taking pictures, which I shall share at some stage.
Now for some funnies:
This last image is a postcard I received from Holland. It has a greeting on it: "Fijne Dag", which means 'fine day'. It is what the Dutch say in stead of 'Have a nice day'.
So I wish everybody 'Fijne Dag'!
