Hello lovely ladies, it is Friday again. The week just flies by! I'm here to show you some postcards and tell you what made me smile this week.
My first postcard comes from Taiwan and is a bit of a mishmash as it has two works by Picasso on it and some quotes. On the back it says: Coastal Museum of Art.
I haven't decided whether I like it or not. It seems a bit confusing to me, as if an artist has taken two copies of Picasso and made it into a collage of sorts.
All I can say is that the stamp is stunning! No doubt it shows a Taiwanese beauty spot.
The next card did make me smile. It is a black and white bunch of carrots, sent to me by Davida, a retired social worker in Sacramento, California. I particularly like it as we are starting a 21 day Daniel Fast on the 1st of September, where we can only eat vegetables and fruit so we can focus on spiritual things. And she sends me a bunch of carrots! Of course she didn't know, but I still think it's funny.
The carrots are an artwork called Carrot Bunch, 2012 by Patricia Curtan. The stamps are beautiful too. I can see a bunch of grapes, a black and white rose and a strange looking frog.
On Sunday we had a couple of missionaries in our church. It was interesting to hear them talk about their work among the Muslim women in southern Spain and across the water in Morocco. They are the lady with the yellow blouse and the lady 3rd from the right, standing next to me
Here is a photo when we went out for a drink one evening. It is still warm enough to sit outside.
Another thing that made me smile is the picture of our youngest grandchild in the kitchen in Portugal. He is found climbing the bench so he can get to the Nutella that daddy had put away on a high shelf!
The following photos are from Portugal too. We visited the castle at Silves and inside the castle grounds there were some sculptures being shown.
The photo below shows pomegranates on the tree.
It was hot in Portugal!
The photo below has been taken inside the museum of Portimao (mercifully air conditioned). The exhibition was about the architecture of the Algarve. And you might know that I love doors and windows, so I had to have my picture taken by one of those pretty doors (well, it was not a real door...)
Of course there will be some funnies at the end.
Have a great weekend!
Edit: I have been told this first one is about Kansas City in Missouri, not Kansas City, Kansas!
