Hello lovely ladies,
Here I am again to share a few smiles. It's been a good week and like always, full of smiles.
Let me show you a few cards that I received this week:
This one comes from the Czech Republic and reads: "Planting potatoes at school of Agriculture in Tábor. 1913-1919". It made me smile as the students are working the land in a suit and hat. Not a boot or an overall in sight!
The stamp is gorgeous. It features the the Palais Stoclet, the house Josef Hoffmann designed in 1905 for the Belgian Banker Adolphe Stoclet in Brussels.
I found some photos of it on an architect's website:
It is made of white marble, outside and in. Here is the dining room:
The walls are decorated by Gustav Klimt
One of my favorite artists. The whole set-up reminds me a bit of Charles Rennie Mackintosh who was a Scottish architect and designer. Take a look at that living room:A feast for the eye! Unfortunately it is still a family home and as such not open to the public.
My second card is a playful pin-up type card from Russia.
Again with an interesting stamp.
Those of you in the know will recognise the logo of the world championships soccer in Russia held not long ago.
One of the smiles this week is about the carpenter that came to our house so that I could order a cupboard/wall units for the flat upstairs. We will be going to the UK soon and the cabinet will be ready when we come back in October.
I need a space to put my glasses in and on the right is a tallboy space to put mops etc in. They (the mops) were always 'parked' at the top of the stairs but that is not a very nice welcome as you come into the flat. In future they will be hidden.
And I've done some card making. The recipient of this card has had his birthday, so I can show the card now.
I've had lots to smile about and I would like you to smile too, so I will include a few funnies. This time they have a baby/kids boozy theme:
That's it ladies! I'm off to Anne at A Stitch In Time and then I'll stop at Virginia's Rocking Your World Friday.
Does anyone like puns? Here are a few to keep you out of mischief...
Have a lovely weekend,
