Hello lovely friends, How are you all today? I hope you have had plenty to smile about this week. Even if things have not gone as expected, there is a silver lining on each cloud. So lets count our blessings and smile!
My first smile is a lovely black and white card that came in the post this week. It is a card from Belgium and the ladies are.... yes, you've guessed it: they are lace makers. Bruges is still famous for its lace. The ladies in the picture look quite old and not all lace makers are old. There is a trend of more modern free style lace, done by younger (dare i say) artists.
Last week was absolutely manic in our village as it was the yearly 'Feria'. The whole week is full of activities, sports competitions, parades, stalls, fun fair, performances etc. People come from wide and far back to Caniles and the population seems to double.
The streets are decorated with these lights (much nicer at night)
This is the start of one of the races.
The young man with number 5 would go and win this particular event.
Then there was the water slide down the high street. People are queueing up for this.
This is what it looked like from the other side.
Most of the performances were flamenco type music and dance.
I think I showed you I was making a card for my sister's anniversary.
Now I can show you the finished resultI was also going to show you the painting of Rotterdam that I have (in the naive style by a R'dam artist) as we were finally going to give it a place on the wall. But the glass broke so now we have to wait until I can take it to the glazier.
That is it from me today. I'm going to link up with Annie at A Stitch In Time and with Virginia at Rocking Your World Friday.
And of course I will end with a few funnies.
Have a great weekend and remember,
