Saturday, cold and windy!

Good morning you all, I am def. not feeling good today. Tripped over a bump on the car park while I was getting my shopping yesterday, and had a nasty fall. Several men stopped to look, an elderly lady came over and helped me gather my bits and pieces together, packed them into my bag for me, and helped me to my car. I was very shaken, but I thought I didn't have more than I few bumps and bruises, but in the course of the day and night everything started hurting, my back is stiff and my hands and feet are swollen. So Ladies, take my advice - If you want to fall onto thr floor, wait till they've laid a red carpet for you. And ask for lots of ladies to be in the audience, the men seem to be there just for decoration.

I would like to show you the lovely things i got from Gaby Bee, a blog buddy here in Germany. I sent her a mail art envelope with some things a few weeks back, and yesterday it was my turn for *postman's knock*

First, their was this wonderful enveope, which we will hanging on the wall in my arty kitchen as soon as I can swing the hammer again

And then ll these lovely goodies - ephemera, paper, embellishments, a wonderful crd, Atc and a home made levender cushion. And those ephemera are really ancient - old photos, cigarette cards etc. Thanks sooooooooooo much Gany, I will put the things to very good use!

So I hope you are not drooling over your key boards out there, that was a wonderful packet,
And I just have 3 little tags to show you, wasn't up too much after crashing onto the asphalt yesterday:

I just made three tags with children's themes, as the sumer holidays are rapdily approaching here.
Have a nice day you all, take care, don't fall over bumps in the asphalt, and thanks for visiting!

  19. Valerie, I'm so sorry about your fall. I think the stars are out of whack. I hurt my knee this week and because I favored it, my back is killing me. If it's not one thing it's another. Take care of yourself. We can no longer fall, trip or run into things that will damage our bodies. We need them to be strong. How else will we be able to continue our crafting fun?

    More great tags and wonderful treasures via your swap friend.
