I am a new retiree..well a couple of years retired, but just settling into this new life and enjoying lots of "adventures!!
I am enjoying several hobbies including:
Calligraphy... (I love anything with writing/letters/alphabets or books on it.)
Collecting "First day issue Envelopes" or "Commemorative Envelopes". They seem to capture the "highlights" in life's busy circle!!
And last but not least...the beauty of needlepoint and the never ending types of stitches! I have made two pillows, one tote bag with a tigers face on it. It is so satisfying to see pieces of work completed.One of my favourite "artists" is Lee. The canvasses are beautiful and full of life.
THESE ARE A FEW OF MY MOST FAVOURITE THINGS!!....
*****I absolutely LOVE "Inga Look Granny Postcards" and if possible I understand that she has designed several stamps...it would be awesome to have the stamps as well!*****
The Queens Jubilee (60 years as the reigning Monarch)or anything regarding the Royal Family
Fairy Tales (beautiful pictures/old world)such as Alice in Wonderland, Gullivers Travels, Winnie the Pooh, sleeping beauty etc.
Fairies (such as the ones drawn by James Browne)
Architectural details or buildings...Russian train stations
Holiday themes..Christmas, Valentine, Halloween etc.
World Events such as the Olympics
Lettering....and it can be...words,non words (any style of printing/writing/calligraphy)Alphabets
Great Sailing Ships
I am very excited about my new adventure..."postcrossing", and I am looking forward to my "armchair travel" around the world with you!
Thanks for sharing with me...be well, be safe, be happy :)
I look forward to hearing from you.
