Good morning lovely ladies,
How are you today? Have you had much to smile about this week? There is always a silver lining along each cloud and it helps to count your blessings. And I do. I am very blessed. Many smiles this week.
Of course the first smiles are always my postcards. This one is a beautiful painting by Sir William Orpen (1878-1931), Grace reading at Howth Bay (c.1908-1912).I love Orpen's work ever since I saw a copy of one his paintings on the Antique Roadshow. It turned out to be an original! (Did any of you see that?)
My next card is from Japan. I think they are three women.... but I'm not sure about the figure on the left.
And the stamps are gorgeous. The one on the right looks like a Dick Bruna illustration. (A Dutch illustrator and artist), and the other two with cute animals: a rabbit and a monkey.
So what have i been up to this week? Autumn has now arrived here too. These photos were taken on Sunday:
On Mondays I always pray with my best friend. It was my turn to go to her house and we sat by the window. This is the view:
On Tuesday I had a little accident in that I dropped the glass lid of my favorite pan. The pan I use every day. My 'go-to' pan! All I had left was the metal ring and the pink handle. You can see the lidless pan in the background.
This is what it looked like .
The glass broke in thousands of pieces! I was very upset.Wednesday I had a couple of friends round to make Christmas decorations..
We made snowflakes from a die cut:
Then yesterday a chap came round with a tractor to plow our two fields. We want to start planting stuff in the spring.
The people that keep the horse, also have two large dogs. One of them has puppies and they are so affectionate!
That is it from me today. I will try and find some funnies for you and will put them at the end as per usual.
Take care everyone!
