Tag Tuesday

Today's theme at Tag Tuesday is all about casino amusements, bingo etc. All things I do NOT like. When I was working at the old people's home I had to play Bingo with the Oldies every Monday, which they loved, but my fun was limited there, too, as it is not easy to play games with a group of 'I'm determined to win', deaf and excitable Oldies, fighting for the honour of winning soap or chocolate or a bottle of juice! But I let them win, they enjoyed their afternoon, and that was it.
For my tag I have stamped a manila tag with various background motives in gold, and then added two vintage tarot cards and some counters. Very exciting - not! I have surrounded it with other game accoutrements, taken from Monopoly and my stash. That was it!


The nicest parts are my monopoly pieces!



And I took a photo of a one-arm bandit, the only one I have.....


Sorry, not very sharp, but he kept moving! He is usually only let out for Halloween,  but I thought he night like a little airing in the summer. He prefers coins to keys, but he's too quick for me and my camera that way, so here he is with my car key, which is too big for him to grab!

Okay, this is a rather stupid post. Sorry, my head somehow feels like that today. Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for visiting!

  6. You've started my day with a smile. I used to do bingo at the nursing home- totally know what you mean! I don't think I'd have much for a casino challenge either!

  11. I thoroughly enjoyed the post! Love the tag and the gorgeous tarot cards too. Your 1 armed bandit is too cute! Loved looking at the German version of Monopoly, just like the American version, ha ha! I'm not a Bingo player either, I remember getting bored watching my Mother play ha ha.
