Hi you all, hope you are all well and fit. I received some happy mail today, and one was also a yummy mail!
I won a giveaway over at Linda K's blog, and she sent me three beautiful ATCs from faraway America, with stitching, and beautiful colours and images that make me yearn for spring! And they were packed into this wonderful envelope made from a gelli-plate print. What a lovely idea! Thanks a lot Linda.
And from Suze Bain in not so faraway Bonnie Scotland I got a bonnie wee parcel, with yummy contents. Suze knows how I love chocolate and Horlicks, especially when it is one of the brands I so enjoyed in my youth! It was packed into two pretty packages, dolled up with ribbon and an Easter card.
Yummy - Cadbury's chocolate bunnies filled with caramel - and a Malteser bunny - and Horlicks!
And the first bunny has already been eaten....soooo yummy!
Thanks a lot, Suze!
For Tag Tuesday I chose the word Mezuzah, the little box affixed to the door in a Jewish home, containing the words of the 'Shema Israel' beginning with the phrase: "Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One" , taken from the book of Deuteronomy. The parchment, written by hand from a trained scribe (Hebrew -'Sofer Stam' ) in indelible ink is rolled to fit into the casing. which is mostly decorated.
The Hebrew letters on the casing – spell “Shaddai” – the Almighty.
I have made a 3-dimensional tag. I made a little paper mezuzah case, and glued it together after colouring and decorating the outside. I put a copy of the Hebrew parchment into it, and mounted it with screw brads onto my tag. The mezuzah is always mounted at an angle on the right side of the door post.
That's all for today! Be back soon for Paint Party Friday, this week is flying by!
Take care and thanks for visiting.
