I have just come back from a lovely week visiting my new grandson, and of course my daughter and her partner. It was a great visit, lots of cuddles, lots of weight and length gain, and a couple of forays out into the world that carries on regardless of your own sheltered spot. Those first few trips out with your baby, and all the extra bits and bobs you have to take along, are quite an effort. However, cabin fever takes over and they soon become much easier!
Coming home was great too, and several goodies in the letter box to greet me.
This lovely thing came from Christina McMaster. It is so fragile and tender colours to go with it. Christina has used part of a page from an old book as her base. It feels soft but the corners just broke off as I unwrapped it so the paper is brittle. An ephemeral expression. Only a postal address so I haven’t been able to link her here – I’ll send another postcard!
Number 2 is this cheerful postcard from Connie McGinnis. Again no link but maybe she will send me one when I email my thanks. ‘Enjoy Life’s Moments’ is perfect. I love the colours and the zentangle bird. I have been feeding our birds during the recent snow and I have a soft spot for them.
Thirdly, a credit to our postal systems, this ‘Wild At Heart’ card fromTerrie. It arrived without stamp, or postmark so I am impressed – unless it lost it’s envelope to the postie who fancied the stamp… but no, let’s say it was delivered free of charge for it’s sheer delightfulness! Here’s Terries link It’s well worth a visit with lots of lovely things going on.
