It's Friday again and my blog post is about the things that have made me smile this week. And of course a postcard in my mailbox always makes me smile!
This first one is from Poland, from someone called Lukas. It reads: greetings from Elblag, (a city in the north of Poland.) The city was badly damaged in WW2. Recently an attempt has started to bring back something of the old glory.
The stamps are lovely. (although the bottom one is upside down). The flower is Centaurea (knapweed)
and the bottom stamp shows the Branicki Palace in the city of Bialystock (also in Northern Poland).
The second card is rather special. It has a stamp stuck on the front of the card.The stamp shows Australian cricket legend Sir Donald Bradman.
This is called a Maxi card, when the stamp has the same subject as the picture on the card. I have collected a few over the years. Unfortunately I know nothing about cricket but I found something about this man in Wikipedia:
Sir Donald George Bradman, AC,(27 August 1908 – 25 February 2001) often referred to as "The Don", was an Australian international cricketer, widely acknowledged as the greatest batsman of all time. Bradman's career Test batting average of 99.94 has been cited as the greatest achievement by any sportsman in any major sport.
Wednesday I had some friends round to make the large Christmas snowflake.They are easy and I do them every year. So by popular request I showed my friends just how easy it was.This is the result:
Another really great thing this week is that my friend from Holland (we know each other since university) has come to stay this week:They (she, her partner plus dog) are leaving today to slowly travel back to Holland in their small campervan.
So you can see I have had a really good week. What have you smiled about this week? Please join us with your smiles at Annie's or at Virginia's.
Have a lovely week,
