Polished Polish!

Kazia from Poland who is enjoying her holidays at her summer cottage has sent two cards. One of the cards, radishes reminds me that like her friend I love radishes too although it is not the season for them here, as I have remarked before, it is always summer in the supermarket!
This sweet card expresses a sentiment we all share that creation (however it happened) is a wonderful thing.
Thanks Kasia.

Thank you Fumiko.

Very late in posting but nevertheless just as welcome, one of Fumiko's wonderful cut paper cards. I marvel at the inventiveness she shows with simple paper and a knife!
Thank you Fumiko for the beautiful hydrangeas.

No need to apologise!

Masami apologises for being late in sending these three delightful cards. Some things are worth waiting for!
A catband Harmonica player!

Some yummy tuna sushi...Oishiii!, and a coffee filter flower painting.
Thank you Masami san.

Flowers for memories.

A lovely wild poppy card from Valerie. These poppies hold a special place in the hearts of Australians. We wear them in remembrance of the soldiers killed in all of the wars. The custom dates from the armistice of World War 1 because many of our soldiers perished in Flanders where these poppies grow wild in the field.
A beautiful card and very special.
Thanak you Valerie.

Thank you Shungo my friend.

A beautiful card of cherry blossoms from Shungo. Shungo was among the earliest friends I exchanged cards with back in about 2011 and he never disappoints.
Thank you Shungo.

A dream vacation.

I confided to Debbie that it had been my dream this year to visit Japan but circumstances  ruled otherwise. She sweet creature has given me a 'virtual' trip via her delightful map of Hokkaido. Not as good as the real thing especially with a chance to visit with her, but an exercise in imaginary flight...thank you for the kind thought Debbie.

Don't you love the seal?
