A Postcard A Day - Friday 15 September 2017 - Friday Smiles

Good morning lovely girls, how are you all? Have you had a good week? Plenty to smile about?

Well, no postcards today. We are travelling and I have none at hand. But my week has had lots of smiles. 

We visited my S-I-L in Plymouth and she and her hubby took us to a National Trust property called Cotehele:
It is a medieval house with Tudor extensions. It has been left untouched for 500 years.
I will show some photos of the interior another time. The view from the garden was stunning:
Down below runs the river Tamar (the border between Devon and Cornwall):
We walked through the gardens and I saw this enormous mushroom:
My camera case lies next to it to show you the size.
I'd love a mirror like that in my garden.
Me and my hubby by the entrance.

I'm off to join Annie at A Stitch In Time and Virginia for Rocking Your World Friday. I apologise if I can't comment much these days, but we are staying at friends' and family and we don't always get the chance to get the old laptop out. (I'm writing this at night when everyone is in bed, shhh...)

I managed to find some funnies. I got them from Denthe's blog. I admit that I stole them. I'm sure she won't mind as long as I tell you where I got them. By all means have a look at her blog. She is a very talented artist.

And some food for thought (also from Denthe)

And just to get a little bit political:

Sorry for the bad language.

That is it from me this week,
I wish you all a wonderful week with lots of smiles,


  1. It's so lovely to see the beautiful places you're visiting. You appear to be having a great holiday....hope the rest of it is just as good. The funnies made me chuckle...thanks for sharing them.

  3. It looks like an amazing place to visit and so steeped in history too 😁. The views of the gardens look lovely! Wishing you a Happy Friday and Weekend! J 😊

  4. It sounds as though you are having a lovely time Lisca. Devon and Cornwall are a lovely corner of UK. I like the photo through the archway, and the mirror too.
    Your funnies made me smile, especially the kangaroo.
    Enjoy the rest of your break. Kate x

  5. wow what an amazing place-can't wait to see the inside enjoy your vacation

  6. Tee hee hee - the funnies had me giggling - with the exception of Orwell - that's just worrying!

    Your visit looks fantastic, what a beautiful house to visit! We noticed a fair number of mushrooms recently too on our travels, its definitely the season.

    I hope you have a fantastic weekend and week ahead.
