Thank you for the music.....

Do you remember? The used up emery sticks?
That kind of work needs special background music!
cheery, to sing along with....great for good mood.

....The refurbished sandpaper sticks, ready to be used to smooth down silver after rasping.
(the red ones are used for wood sanding)...

Some people don´t have earholes..... so I started to make some Clips.
Earclips where ultramodern in the fifties and sixties!
I remember, my mother had lot´s of them in plastic, In all colors matching to any summer dress...
so why not give them a more precious touch with glassbeads and elaborate crafting....

Swan family....

What a surprise looking out of my window!
3 swan-babies and their mother are grazing .....We have always swans here at the danube, but these are the first newly hatched I see!
Had to take a picture. Mama Swan was not overly exited about, so I better took to my heels

insured parcel from Europe to USA

To send a parcel insured with declared valuation , it must be sealed......... I never did that before, and it was not so easy to find how to do....(and I hope I did it the right way!)

After taking the picture I made 3 more seals (and put an address on of course)....nevertheless, the post office accepted it !

Holes in Stones....

I have been in Croatia, Istria, for some days.....
and as always I could not resist to pick up several stones at the beach!
I love the bizarre form of these "wormy" stones . The holes are made by living organismn, but I
must confess that I don´t know exactly who`s the causer. Maybe anybody knows....would be great if anyone living by the sea could give an answer ?

...I also found some sepia backs and thought of ossa-sepia-cast.....we will see...
