The box is about 40 cms by 25 cms, so about 16" by 10". Crafty ladies are ladies who love to do paper crafts, and other crafts. Those are rubber stamps on wooden blocks.

Sue, I'm jealous. I only have about four stamps so far!

Belleville is celebrating summer this weekend with sidewalk sales, bands in the park and downtown, and my favourite - a classic car competition, with them all parked along the (closed off) main street. This one's my favourite - a 1952 Allard racer.

I only found out recently that this monument has been returned to the City of London.It's Temple Bar, which used to mark the boundary of the ancient City, where Fleet Street becomes the Strand. It was pulled down in the mid-eighteenth century because it obstructed the traffic, and after mouldering for about 250 years in the countryside it's been re-erected as part of the Paternoster Square development by St Paul's Cathedral.

The only things missing are the heads on spikes that used to adorn it in the good old days. I can think of a few people who might be put to death and stuck up there for the delectation of Londoners and tourists. Maybe "reality TV" should have a show on the lines of "Who do you want to see grimacing at you from Temple Bar when you go to work in the City?"

No, I am not secretly considering becoming a Buddhist nun at all. I would look even more weird bald! But it is lovely and peaceful there!
This is Bill
I used to collect buffaloes and they were all called by variations of Bill, like Will, Guillaume etc (Buffalo Bill, geddit?)
He is made of Jadeite and I like him.

The arms of Hastings, depicted on a pub sign.

If you think there's something odd about the sight of lions with ships where their tail ends ought to be, then take a look at the arms of Great Yarmouth - they have lions with the tails of herrings.

This is my first time posting a picture in this forum. The picture I'm sharing is of the United Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.



This is a picture of Todd Beamer's angel (Todd's is the one with the plastic hanging on it) in the field. On July 7, 2007, I visited Shanksville to place my cat Chick out there. Chick died on September 14, 2007.


**Please let me know if you all can see this picture**

The photo showing OK DakotaNorth.

Here is another photo from the Friday bike ride. It is the view from the top of the plateau shown in yesterday's photo. The London skyscrapers and the Wembley Arch can be seen on the horizon on a clear day.

I must take a look at this monument next time I'm in London. It was located in the woods near where we live for many years, and was becoming overgrown and damaged by surrounding trees. It's rightly back where it belongs as piece of London's history!
Miserable July day today, but here's a picture of a happy family not worried by the rain - coots in the Lea Valley regional park.

Maynooth and I took a road trip this weekend so no doubt you'll be seeing the photographic results of that over the next few weeks.

This is the first installment - the light posts at the intersection of Roe Highway and Kwinana Freeway in Perth. I have tried googling extensively to find out why they are like this because they are not representative of our typical light posts and to the best of my knowledge, there are only about a dozen of them in this one location.

Some people seem to think they represent the waugal (snake in Aboriginal mythology) but I could find no evidence for this. One site said they were supposed to be "art". Well, I haven't a clue but they are highly unusual and eye catching.

Liz, I've found the more you get into scrapbooking, the more stuff you accumulate, the less portable you become. I used to love going to scrapbooking nights but find now that they are a hassle because I can never decide what to take and what to leave behind. And inevitably, I'll get a bright idea when I'm out and won't have the things I need to do it. My friend comes over to my house on a regular basis to do scrapbooking and this works well because I have a large dining room table (and she doesn't) and I don't have to move all my stuff.

And Sue, I have that crossed wine glasses stamp too.

Quote:

Has anyone else found that taking these photos makes you appreciate your surrounds a bit more and take more notice of things? That windmill has always been there but i can't think of the last time i actually *saw* it.




Yes, Copago, I have noticed this. I now take photos of things I normally would never have snapped because I think "Oh, Satguru will like that" (yes, that photo will be posted shortly!) or "Mum will be interested in that". Maynooth teased me unmercifully this past weekend on our road trip because of all the photos I was taking, allegedly for other people. I actually was mistaken for an American tourist in Bridgetown.

And I find myself looking at ordinary things around me a little bit more observantly.

I really enjoy these little glimpses into other people's lives. I like to know how other people live. Nothing is too ordinary.

Those are some unusual light posts, MG!

Last Monday it snowed in Buenos Aires after after 89 years. It was a really magical day. We never thought it would snow so it was a big surprise. People went out on the streets cheering and celebrating the snow.



This is my dad's car covered in snow, and it was still snowing when the picture was taken. It may not be a lot of snow to some, but it certainly was a lot to us

After 89 years it really must have been magical!

MG, I'd love to get my sister over here for a scrapbooking night, but unless we go to an organised crop, it never seems to fit in.

Here's another car photo from yesterday, this time an Edsel that was proceeding slowly along the street. Its license plate reads "58 EDDY".

From an outing Saturday night to the aging but still busy Hilltop Miniature Golf in Glenside. Every hole is supposed to represent a different country, though we found at least two holes have lost their identities.
I wonder how many children over Hilltop's 45+ years have had their initial pangs of wanderlust sparked here.

Hopefully, this photo shows up okay.

The flowers that are out front our house in South Philadelphia, my sister did all the work, and I have the glory of posting them...hehe.

Every year where I live in New Westminster they have a Huge huge car show on Columbia street with every kind of car you can imagine and a few that you just shake your head at and go why and what is it?
Well I usually go and every year they have one of my favorite cars there.I just adore these and as I am on the height challenged list this would suit me perfectly if I ever drove.
