My own lovely black baby shoes. I don't think I ever wore these much but I am happy my mom kept them.
And yet another great find ... meet Joan of Arc.

Just love these little black dice ... I often hold them in my hands and just play with them. I just like the way they feel in my hand. As I'm writing this down it just sounds like a weird habbit to me. Do you think it's weird?
This beauty arrived just in time to join this party today. I just could have kissed the mailman yesterday morning ...come to think of it ... he is rather cute. Anyway, this black metal container was used in church to store candles in.
That's it for this Friday. Can't wait for next weeks party! Please go and check out Gypsy Brocante for more VBF contributions or even join in the fun!
Have a great weekend!

This amazing news moved me to tears. Isn't life just fabulous!

Nope! So I made up a new rule. I will save any magazine for no longer then 3 months. When the 3 months have past I scan the contents and tear out the articles I want to save and through away what's left of the beautiful thick glossy paper.
So yesterday when I sat on the living room floor surrounded by tons of paper my eye spotted an article in which the writer wondered what ever happened to the charm of receiving handwritten postcards. Now I love the internet (way too much according to my dear husband to be) and I truly love receiving your comments and e-mails but ... I do really miss the excitement of running to the mailbox hoping to find a letter or postcard inside.
Now it so happened that the article mentioned a website where you can register, receive random addresses of people you do not know from all over the world to whom you can send a postcard to and better yet ... receive one (or two, or three or ...) as well. HHHhhmmm ... would that be something for me? There was only one way to find out. So I did register, requested some addresses (no more than 5 at one time ?!) and today send a postcard to India, France, Finland and the US.
Now the waiting begins ...

Although, I am a complete nitwit when it comes to photography and lighting ... Truly I am!!! ... I am quite satisfied with some of the end results. Sometimes it is abslutely frustrating when I have the composition & lighting in mind and it just turnes out ... well ... like shit really. It truly makes me wanna give-up and take-up knitting.
Like my dear husband to be says: 'All you need to do is practice, my dear. Just practice'. Yeah well ... I know! Try telling that to my very impatience me ;-)
So let me give you a behind the scenes sneek peak at how I challenge my patience :

These will definately brighten up any party. And the best thing is that you can write a personal message on the edges and send it as a wish card ... Who wouldn't want to receive a bright light in dark times?!

'It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think your a fool than to open it and remove all doubt'
If there is one book that I read over and over again it is Mr. Twain's "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer". He writes with such wit and satire that at times I can't help laughing out loud. Sometimes to great surprise to my fellow house mates (read: lovin' husband to be and our 3 cats) usually followed by utter annoyance from their side. Same thing happened when I read the above quote.
We were all sitting on our settee (the thing inspired me to name my blog the sobbing ... but more on that later) resp. silently reading, watching tv and sleeping. When I just burst out in laughter upon which my lovin' husband to be yelled out in pain ... It so happened my outburst woke up the cat who was sleeping on his legs and by hearing my spontaneous vocal spasm planted all nails in his skin and wouldn't let go.
Which ofcourse made me laugh even louder ...
