A Postcard A Day - Friday 22 February 2019 - Friday Smiles

Hello Lovelies,
It's Friday again! Gosh, that week has flown by! It's been a lovely week weather wise. We have been eating outside on the terrace all week.

I'm going to show you some of my postcards that arrived this week:
 This card comes from Germany and was sent by someone called Gabi. The town is Ulm. She tells me that Ulm has the highest church tower in the world, and that Ulm has a very nice Museum of Modern Art.

And I received another card from Finland. My favorite naughty aunties illustrated by Inge Löök.

Sent to me by Isabel. She writes that she bought the card from Mrs Inge Löök herself at an annual book fair in Helsinki.
This is the stamp. Quite fun don't you think?

Earlier this month we went to Almería for a few days. Here are some photos of the impressive cathedral.

It was built between 1524 and 1562 in the gothic style with renaissance facades.

 It was built as a fortress because of Berber (North African) pirates attacking Almeria. You can clearly see this in the next (old) photo which I got off the internet:

We stepped inside into a huge court yard/cloister.

There we found a door into the church bit:

 Inside is very impressive. We were given an audio guide (in English) for a detailed explanation. This photo is from the leaflet: (Much better than my photo)
 One of the chapels with a lot of art:

 This is in the room where the clergy used to (and probably still do) get dressed. In the large drawers, the vestments are kept and there are mirrors. Here I am having a bit of fun photographing myself in the mirror.

That is my for today. I'm going to link up with Annie at A Stitch In Time and with Virginia at Rocking Your World Friday. 
I'm afraid I haven't got many funnies this week, but a few things to think about. 
The one about marriage is quite funny, I saw it somewhere else and someone had added something about a joker, but I have forgotten the punch line .....

Have a lovely weekend,
Big hug,


  1. Your postcards are fabulous this week. I really like the one from Germany, but I think it's because I like architecture.

    Speaking of architecture, that cathedral in Almería is out of this world. Not sure which I like more, the building or the palm trees that seem to be everywhere around it.

    Have a super Friday and enjoyable weekend, Lisca.

  2. Love your postcards but I have to say your funnies made me smile most....esp the last one. Aren't some people clever with words?

  3. Great cards and photographs but the funnies are just brilliant. Late today as I've been getting ready for my craft club tomorrow so just catching up before bed. Have a great weekend, Angela xXx

    1. I've popped back as you asked about the lizard, he's not from Egypt. Got him from a craft show but can't remember where but there are other bits and pieces around there that were from Egypt such as the turqouise scarab beetle, the pieces of alabaster, some miniature canopic jars and tiny pyramids. Think that's about it. On my way back to send you this message I noticed the photograph of you through the mirror, it's brilliant and what fun too. Have a lovely weekend, Angela xXx

  4. Better late than never. I have been outside enjoying the sun. Aren't we blessed this year? Your postcards are lovely. It is a beautiful view of Ulm and the naughty aunties are fun.
    I have been to Almeria several times, and every time we spend too long in the Alcazabar, so the cathedral is closed when we get back to it. One day I shall make a special trip to see inside it!
    Had to smile at all the signs, and the last one is very clever. Hope you have a good week. Kate x

  5. Ah bless that place in Almeria looks amazing, what fantastic history! I also love your postcards, the tallest church tower again is something I've never thought of. You look like you've had a good week, I liked the funnies they made me smile. I hope you have a fabulous weekend and week ahead.
