Natural designs

Nature can produce breathtaking designs. The walls of this salt mine in Sicily are very beautiful.

It's that time of the year...

I like to find original ideas for Christmas trees. I must confess that it gets harder to find new ones each year! Some of the trees are different takes on designs previously posted.

[As my memory is a bit dodgy, I hope this collection doesn't contain exact repeats.]

Not an easy craft!

View sent me a link to a Brazilian Facebook post featuring this video. I had to do my homework and find it on YouTube so it could be shared on the blog. Thanks, View, it was worth it!

Women's purses

I had this post saved as a draft, for a rainy day. Well, it's not raining, but I'm still too excited to do a fresh post! Billy and Sandra sent their thanks for all your good wishes and love.

A husband was trying to embarrass his wife at a party by going on and on about all the stuff women carry in their purses.

Instead of blushing,  she said, “You’re right. There IS too much stuff in my purse.” So she removed his wallet, cigarettes, lighter, and car keys and handed them to him.

When he asked what he was supposed to do with them, she smile sweetly and said, “Get your own purse!"
