Happy Mail

Hi you all, greetings from sunny Kaiserswerth. It is so nice to see the sun today instead of cloud and drizzle, hope it stays a bit. I still feel very groggy, and am not able to do more than the bare necessities just now, but I am hopeful that sooner or later things will be better. I have a wonderful tablet cocktail for breakfast each day, a mix of different poisons to fight the illness and some to fight the side effects, so hope they all know what they are doing. I look like I have been made up as Dracula's assistant just now, perhaps I can get a job somewhere - pity Halloween is over!
 I manged to take some photos of the lovely mail I have received in the past days; not easy with shaky fingers!
First the card and envelope from Diane. I love the wonderful selection of stamps, and am happy that the post didn't ruin them this time!

The ladies on the card have a strange resemblance to some of my family....

And there are so many 'surprises' cooking in the cauldron  all removable, so I will be able to open my own poison shop next Halloween! Diane makes such wonderful cards, so full of loving details! Thank you!

This lovely card was made and sent by Tracy Holmes all the way from Canada, together with the lovely set of witch stamps, which she kindly donated as a prize to the 'Hatters'. Thanks Tracy!

This beautiful card dropped into my mailbox yesterday from Lynne of Adorn. This card is so much Lynne's wonderful, nostalgic style, and came as a complete surprise, with 2 pretty Xmas stamps tucked inside it. Thanks, Lynne; your kindness brightened my day!

And last but not least, a wonderful card from Suze, packed into a beautifully stamped envelope.

The second layer, beautiful handmade paper with dried flowers in it....

and the next one, more beautiful paper and ribbon.....

And inside, this wonderful get well card, a sunny, floral greeting. Thanks so much, Suze!

So much kindness just does good. Thanks to you all! I am sorry I am not able to visit your blogs much just now; I will do so as soon as I have enough strength! But for now, thank you all for not forgetting me!

Thanks for visiting and take care of yourselves!
