Hello, Spring!

Hello, from England!  I hope you're doing well, wherever you are!

I was able to make a few cards before I came over, and I'd like to share this one with you.  The cream along with the different shades of blue and tan really go well together.  The puffy white embossed piece is from my stash of frames, and the blue flower was cut from a Heartfelt Creations die.

Spring has definitely sprung in Tennessee, and summer has arrived early.  It's been in the 90's at home, and I don't do heat well.  It's been in the 60's with today in the low 70's, and lows in the 50's here in London, which is just fine with me.  We've had one day of rain the past week.  This weather is perfect for someone who doesn't care about sunbathing on the beach in the heat!  Which I don't, just so ya know. 

I hope you're doing well, feeling happy and blessed!

I'm in England!

Hello, all you friends out there!  I haven't posted in a while as I've been busy watching the kids, and my daughter added another - this time a baby girl.  Now I have seven grandchildren! 

My hubby of 39 years, has been sent to London, England for seven months to work in seven hospitals in the area.  Guess who came with him?  Me!  It's taken a week to get rid of the jet lag, and now I'm homesick for the kids and the dogs.  The day after we left, Stella broke a toe on her hind leg.  Poor girl.  I am so thankful to Julie for taking care of them while we're gone. 

I wasn't able to bring any craft supplies due to weight and luggage restrictions on the plane, so I'll have to find something to do here.  I'm a little afraid to wander out on my own, as which direction I'm going is unknown, and I don't want to get lost.  It would be so easy to get lost here.  Everything we need is so close, within walking distance, and we've been doing a lot of that!

This is pedestrian crossing sign, not for humped zebras!  It tells cars that there is a speed "hump" ahead that is painted with white stripes.  Very funny!
This is the front entrance to the free London Museum.  We were fascinated by the
Greek inspired building made of marble, the statues inside, and the huge display
of Egyptian mummies and artifacts.

You turn the corner, and there's another
long road of just flats on top and little
shops and businesses on the bottom.
What is franked mail?  Stamped
or run through a machine?  Then
there's the abroad mail...
