A Postcard A Day - Tuesday 26 November 2019 - T for

Hello lovely ladies, here we are again on Tuesday.

My blog is about postcards, so here we go:
 This first postcard is from Germany and it features and island: Insel Reichenau. The monastic island of Reichenau is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is an island on Lake Constance and it preserves the traces of the Benedictine monastery, founded in 724, which exercised remarkable spiritual, intellectual and artistic influence. The churches of St Mary and Marcus, St Peter and St Paul, and St George, mainly built between the 9th and 11th centuries, provide a panorama of early medieval monastic architecture in central Europe. Their wall paintings bear witness to impressive artistic activity.
The stamps are pretty. The one on the right is about Heimz Sielmann, a wildlife photographer and film maker.
 The second postcard comes from the UK. You can see the spines of the Penguin Poetry Series, 1963. Majority by Stephen Russ.
I've had an unremarkable week and a fantastic weekend. I went to a Christian 
Women's Conference in Fuengirola (south coast Spain). I had to travel to Granada first where I would meet some friends, so we could travel together.
We decided hubby would drive me to Granada (about an hour and a half by car) and we would have lunch somewhere.
On Friday it was our anniversary. We officially got married in August before the magistrate, but then we had a church blessing in November as we had to wait until my parents , who were in New Zealand on holiday, had come back. That was the 'big do' and that date we like to celebrate as our anniversary. It is 27 years now.

 This is my qualifier for the T-Party. A lovely glass of red wine.
 The conference was in Fuengirola, 160 km further down. One of the girls had organized a so called Bla Bla car, which is a bit like Über but for longer distances. The young man that drove us dropped us off at the hotel. The conference was actually in the same hotel we were staying at.
There was the registration
And then we could have our nails done while we waited for everyone to be registered.
 The church that organised it is called Next.

 There were good speakers

 and great worship.

We had a great time. More photos next week.

Happy T-Day all,


  1. Hi Lisca great stamps to go with the postcards, and sounds like you and your friends had a wonderful time that was a cool idea to get your nails done while waiting.
    Loved the photos-Happy T hugs Kathy

    1. Thank you so much Lisca for your supportive comment-I needed to reminded of that-hugs

  2. Oh, I love it. Several years ago we went to a ladies Bible conference, where before the speakers, we could get our nails done and massages. It was great as were the speakers, too. We had all gone down in the church van, and stayed at the same hotel as the conference. I miss doing this.
    Glad you could go. And congratulations on 27 years!
    A note from Elizabeth: she is having computer problems and will be by when she can. Happy t Day!

  3. Fab postcards and stamps as usual. Happy anniversary!!! Looks like a wonderful time at your Christian conference. Happy T day!

  4. Happy belated anniversary. And your conference looks like it was fun. Interesting you could get your nails done. That made me smile. Hope you have a super T day. Hugs-Erika

  5. Sielmann, yes, that rings a bell, my Dad had several books of him.
    "Funny" when non-Germans can tell you of your country about places you had no idea of!
    I mean... Germany is rather small, right!

    Happy, happy anniversary to you!!

    Gosh. I feel so old when I hear/read Bla-bla car. Help!!! :-)

    Happy T-Day to you, hugs, Iris

  6. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend away. Happy Anniversary, too! Insel Reichenau is beautiful, had some holidays near there in past days when I could still afford such luxuries! And I have most of those Penguin poetry books still here on my shelves! I bought them as a student. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  7. That looked like a fun weekend. Happy Anniversary. Wonderful postcards and stamps. Happy T-Day!

  10. Sending you Happy Anniversary wishes, many congratulations! It looks like you had a lovely time at the conference 😁. Happy T Day wishes! Hugs, Jo x

  11. Happy Anniversary Lisca, congratulations, looks like you had fun at the conference.
    Great postcards once again, we went to Lake Constance in 1976 , we were camping and had traveled down from Detmold , our boys were only 4 & 2, happy times.
    We had a New Year in a hotel years ago in Fuengirola, we enjoyed the party but wasn’t too keen on the place.
    Happy T Day, Jan x

  12. Happy Anniversary! Looks like a wonderful time was had by all the conference goers. So much fun to share with like minded folks. Happy T Day

  13. Happy anniversary, Lisca! Your Christian Women's Conference looks wonderful. The planners thought of so many special touches like the manicures. I love your outfit. The black flowered top is stunning and you look terrific!

    Happy T-day! Eileen xx

  14. I am loving that postcard of the poetry spines. Nothing is better than a book that has a work of art as a cover.
    Your ladies conference sounds like a treat. Nails, fellowship and worship. So fun!
    Happy Tea Day,

  15. What can I say, other than I realize I'm very late visiting. Happy, happy belated anniversary. So glad you got to spend it doing something together, even if you did rush off after you celebrated with wine.

    Those postcards are amazing. I loved the books and even knew a few of the authors.

    What a wonderful seminar. How unique that you were able to get your mails done while waiting for everyone to arrive.

    Thanks for sharing your postcards, your anniversary wine, and your trip to Fuengirola with us for T this Tuesday, which is now Wednesday.

  16. You receive such wonderful postcards. I've started looking at postcards when I'm out and about and never find anything so interesting.

    Your seminar sounds great. Always nice to do something like that with a group of friends.

  17. Love the postcard with the book spines. The conference looks to have been an uplifting experience! Belated Happy T Day, Chrisx
