Hello lovely peeps,
How are you all? Have you had a lot to smile about? I have, even if it is just the weather. It is warm and sunny and it has only just turned March. We have our meals outside every day and it is lovely.
First off are a lot of smiles as I have been receiving something in the mail every day. Here is a lovely black and white postcard of Audrey Hepburn. It comes to me from Germany, from the federal state of Saarland, which is next to Luxumbourg.
The stamp is also very nice. It commemorates 1000 years Worms cathedral which was consecrated in the year 1018. It is built in the Romanesque style.
Here is a photo (from Wikipedia) of the cathedral as it is today:
My week has been about receiving things in the post so it seems. This is one of the things I received. A pancake mould. It was a promotion and I got it practically for nothing.
We don't normally make American pancakes so I had a go and they turned out well
and very delicious with the Maple Syrup we managed to get at Lidl.
Something else I ordered online are my Senseo coffee pads. I like the Cappuccino Choco, but they are not available outside the Netherlands as far as I know. So I went online and I could only buy them in a box of ten. So ten it was!
I have also been doing some crafting. I have discovered Pocket Letters. I have made three now but I can't show you until the recipients have received theirs (I posted them yesterday). It is a swap and I am swapping with someone in Hungary and someone in the UK.
They are little ATC size cards in a folder. Behind each card you put a letter, a teabag, a bit of ribbon, some embellishments etc. All nine cards are swapped and sent.
This is what they look like from the internet (not mine, it is made by someone called Sue Harris)
I also did some scrapbooking. Here is hubby on the beach. I have been playing with my gesso and the templates I had lying about. The film strip is a die cut i have (very old it is too).
This is it from me this week. I'm going to link up with Annie at A Stitch In Time and with Virginia at Rocking Your World Friday. As always I will post some funnies at the end.
Have a great weekend and keep smiling!
