This lovely fabric Christmas postcard arrived today from Ritva in Finland. I have included a photo of the stamps on the envelope as I think they are fascinating.
The Three Creative Studios Cue for this week was ornament. I suppose these are not quite ornaments, but they come out every Christmas. They are nearly 70 years old, and are very special to our family. A couple of the bells are a bit broken, but they still work.
Hopefully this photo will enlarge to let you see the nursery rhymes on them. I love the fact that we still have the original box too.
This beeswax ginger is flowering well at the Gardens at present. You will need to enlarge to see the actual flowers. I had to get down on my hands and knees to take this photo as they hide in under the foliage.
I am off to go for a walk with Jock while the sun is shining - we are expecting heaps more rain in the next couple of days - grrrrr. There is massive flooding in other southern parts of Eastern Australia - and drought in the West. We re a large country after all.
