Well, you could have knocked me down with a feather

When I posted my almost last minute contribution to the wonderful OWOH event, I never expected to see over 100 comments on the post! Flipping heck, it really is quite overwhelming to read all the comments. They made my heart sing, my eyes twinkle and put a huge smile on my face. Thank you so much to all you lovely people who said such lovely things about my blog and my giveaway.

I have spent so much time visiting other blogs today, I didn't even think about the inchie and the tag which I haven't yet made for this week's challenges. ARRGHHH. That has got to be on my to-do list for first thing tomorrow morning.

I haven't made anything else today either, but as we can't have a pictureless post, I am posting a few images which I had scanned in from my own collection. I hope you can make use of them.

I found this one in an old hymn book. Aaah, Spring flowers, I cannot wait to see them popping up in the garden -


This one is a very old Easter card, which I like a lot -



Is this Spanish or Portuguese?


Just look at this gorgeous, chubby little darling! His name is Olivier, he was 3 1/2 months old when the photo was taken, and probably lived in Montceau - Les - Mines in France ( thats where the photo was taken ). I love the lace cushion he is sitting on -


I adore this one, a card in the shape of a (chocolate? ) box filled with flowers -


The reverse of the card is just as sweet, it has this delicate little blue satin ribbon with a deep red seal on it -


Now, the next two images will probably mean a bit more to my German friends. I found these two cards here in England at a boot fair, who knows how they got there. I think they are fabulous, Kaiserin Auguste Viktoria und Kaiser Wilhelm II -



Bedtime for me now, so have a lovely day/evening wherever you are, and I'll carry on with my OWOH blog hopping tomorrow. It is sooooooooo much fun. If you haven't done so yet, what are you waiting for? Go hop, hop, hop!
