The translation of the above text goes like this: 'There are always flowers in the world for those who have a garden in their soul'. (and also coffee by the looks of it)
Good morning lovely ladies,
How are you all?
I am fine and I have selected some postcards that have arrived recently and I would like to show you these two. This first one comes from Russia, and shows the interior of the Arbatskaya Metro Station in Moscow.Isn't it beautiful? It was opened on May 15, 1935 it says on the back.
Here is another photo that I found on the internet:
And this is the outside:
The next card was sent to me by Alexa who lives in Naperville, Illinois. The image on the card is beautiful, but there is no info whatsoever about the artist. That's a shame.The stamps are beautiful too. The one on the left is very clearly Lincoln, and the middle one features Illinois! I can't read what the right-hand stamp is about. Can someone from USA tell me please?
I've been taking a lot of pictures lately in our village. Just going to the baker's and buying a stick of bread can be an interesting photo. I have my phone in my pocket when I go out, se here goes:
The bakery is run by a mother and her three daughters. This is mum.
The shop was empty (that doesn't happen very often) so I could take pictures.
These little cookies are called Roscos.
In a recent blog post I showed this photo of the municipal Christmas tree by day. Not very impressive.But by night it is all lit up.
We also have the odd illumination in the street.Of course I had to pose by the tree....
This got me all in the mood for Christmas and at the eleventh hour I decided to make some cards.
I scanned some postcards I had and used them as the image on these cards.Here is a cheeky French postman.
It was surprisingly time consuming to pull off the top layer of the cardboard. I had to use a knife to scratch it off. But I am very pleased with the results (And I hope the recipients will be too).
Here I am with my Radler beer and a tapa (in this case a small dish of paella rice).
That is it from me today.
Wishing you all a very happy T-Day,
