Boxing Day

Hello and welcome everyone, with an especially big welcome to the new followers - I'm so happy you decided to join the gang!  It's sneak peek time here again at Words and Pictures, as I'm sharing another make over at The Artistic Stamper today - so this is all I can reveal here. It would be wonderful if you had time to pop over there and check it out.


Short and sweet today... thank you so much for stopping by, and I'll be by to visit round your way soon, I hope!


What art offers is space - a certain breathing room for the spirit.

Boxing Day - isn't that around Christmas - where are you, where am I!!!! A little confused here -- LOL!!! As to your your comment about Woolworth's. Alison, I am almost 70 years old and went to Woolworth' as a child with my grandmother. How in the world do you know about this delightful five and dime? And they had the best sandwich counter - good food!!!!! You know Sugar that I always love what you do and if you ever need help with our Southern jargon I am here!!!!!

Die Box ist wunderschön gestaltet, die Schablonierung auf dem Untergrund und die vielen wunderbaren Stempelabdrücke, mit denen sie verziert wurde, lassen sie zu einem ganz besonderen Geschenk werden.
Liebe Grüße, Bärbel
