Hi you all, hope you are enjoying your weekend. Here it has been quiet, and I have been rather lazy, couldn't get myself to do much today. I wanted to show you the pics of my 'salvaged plants'. At the supermarket where I mostly shop, they often put plants at the front which have definitely passed their sell-by date, and which you can take for nothing. These were all specimens which looked totally the worse for wear, dried up, drooping and sad. But I took them home, planted them in my flower box, or in pots , and here they are after a couple of weeks of TLC, looking fit and well.
Yesterday I made some grungy postcards for this weeks challenge over at *Out of a Hat* creations, where the theme is to make a travel postcard. I used the blended paper technique to make the background, and then made a collage of little vintage London images. The 'backsides' have been distressed and stamped using images from Artemio and Chocolate Baroque. I have placed the cards on one of my fave books to take the photos, *London Living* from Lisa Lovatt-Smith. The quotes on the second and third cards are from Samuel Johnson, and the rather original spelling is also from him!
And as I want to send some mail out this week, I have made 2 mail art envelopes, which have been partly printed and partly stamped.
Okay, that was it, time for another coffee. have a good day, take care, and thanks for dropping in!
