Next week I'll be in England for a few weeks so I've been busy trying to get so many different things done.
Christmas cakes are made, most bulbs are planted and I've just finished the Christmas cards that are going off to friends and family in the UK.
This year the cards are printed onto old pages from some French books that I've bought at different brocantes.
The beautiful old wood letters I bought some years ago and I just love them.
How sad to think of the millions that were just burnt when new systems for printing took over.
The little hearts are especially significant for me as they are made from the papers from chocolates that I ate and shared with friends when I was in hospital after my stroke.
The chocolates were a present from a very dear French friend when she came to visit me in hospital.
|I've tried to make the letters look old and rusty.|
The little stars are cut from old sheets of music.
I'd decided that I would use them in some way in my cards this year .
