How are you all? Today we are invited to the T-Party hosted by Elizabeth and Bluebeard, and on top of that, it is also the second of the month so we also share an old blogpost.
First off is my postcard for today
It comes from Finland and it is a black and white image of a female soldier, but there is no date to indicate from which era this photo was taken. It was sent to me by Kaisa, who lives in Helsinki and tells me that she visited the Lotta Museum. This museum is all about the history of Finland. If I am not mistaken, Finland has just celebrated its 100th birthday. I hadn't realized that it is such a new country.
The stamps are beautiful. I have no idea what the angry young man making rude gestures is supposed to represent, and I have no time to look it up as I am late as it is. Sorry.
My 'ticket' for the T-Party is this photo, taken by one of my friends in the photo club. It pictures a cup of (I assume coffee) on a balcony overlooking our nearby little town of Baza.
This is where I will be going as soon as I have this blogpost sent into the ether: Baza. I'm going to order some new fly screens. I have taken the measurements and I will choose and order them so I will be ready for summer.
Below I will show you a blogpost from June 2015. We had been travelling (oh delight!) and you will see the arched windows of the house (Next door) we are now living in.
Wishing you all a very happy T-Day,
SECOND ON THE SECOND:
Hi folks! Sorry I had to miss last week, we were still travelling through Europe. We've now finally arrived home (Thursday). Oh its good to be home! I'm still not completely sorted out and I haven't washed everything, but hey, easy does it.
Here is the photo of my desk. No project on the go as yet. (although I should be making a card for the first birthday of one of our grandchildren) Instead you can see two scrapbook albums with page protectors that I bought in the UK. In the foreground is some artwork by Hannah Dunnett, whose work I love.
Work on our house is continuing and we now have window frames in both arches. Hopefully the glazier will put glass in soon.
I've had to stop Postcrossing the two months I was travelling but I'm back in the swing of sending and receiving postcards again. Here is one of the cards I received. I love turtles and tortoises, so I really love this card.
Today was the first sunny and warm day after a cold spell. I'm sitting in the shade of the vine. Our neighbour pruned it (the vine) properly at the right time of year and the right position of the moon etc. Look at the abundance of baby grapes growing!
That's it from me today. Hopefully I'll have a more interesting page next time.
Have a great week everyone,
